Sunbutter & Jam Mini Muffins

IMG_5489

My daughter loves these mini breakfast muffins and they couldn’t be easier to make.  We made two versions this time – the ‘original’ kind and some using sunbutter and jam.  Yummy!

These muffins are made using pancake mix – pre-packaged or homemade (we used Kodiak Cakes mix).  Just mix up like you are going to make pancakes … for the ‘original’ version, add in about 1/4 cup of maple syrup and a few drops of vanilla (and some fresh berries if you want).  For the sunbutter & jam mini muffins, don’t add maple syrup and instead add about 1/4 cup sunbutter and 1/4 cup of jam.  Mix it all up and spoon into a greased (we used coconut oil) mini muffin pan.  Bake at 350 for about 15-20 minutes (or until a toothpick comes out clean).  Let them cool and then pop them out of the pan and into your mouth.  Ava likes these for breakfast, but they are great for a snack anytime of day.

You could really add just about anything to the mix – nuts, berries, spices, etc.  Pumpkin Pie and Carrot Cake versions are what I want to try next.  Go wild!  :-)

Prosciutto Crisps – Yum!

Move over, bacon – these prosciutto crisps are super crispy, extra tasty, and about 30-40 calories LESS per serving.  I got my “bacon” fix at breakfast this morning by popping a few slices of prosciutto in the microwave.

Place slices between 2 paper towels and microwave for about 1-1:30 (or until they look nice and crunchy).  So simple.

I’ll never say goodbye to bacon (impossible), but these are a pretty close stand-in.  I’ve crumbled them over a salad, made a PLT, and put them on a pizza.  I love how super crispy they are – because the slices are so much thinner, you really get a good crunch.  It’s kind of like a potato chip.  Only better.  Try them … seriously.  Do it.

Cardamom Coffee

It’s Monday and school is closed (tomorrow too!) and we got to enjoy a lazy, no rush kind of morning.  This occasion called for something more than my regular mug of morning coffee so I decided to amp it up with some cardamom.  The aroma and flavor are subtle, yet obviously there (if that makes any sense).  It definitely sets the mood for a calm, relaxing day.

I crack open a few pods and drop them on top of my coffee grounds.  Start off with just one or two crushed pods so you can adjust the strength from there.  I just pour hot water over my grounds, but this will work in a drip maker too.

I like to serve it up black or add a bit of frothy almond milk.  Ahhhhh, enjoy!
