August is “Kids Eat Right” Month

by Angie on August 27, 2014

As I’m learning every day with a 2-year-old, feeding children healthfully is not necessarily as easy as it sounds. I recently shared a few tips with my good friends over at Mornings with Fox 43. Thank you, as always, for having me on!!

The simple recipe for Fruit Salsa with Cinnamon Tortilla Chips can be found here.

“Paleo” Coconut Banana Chia Muffins

by Angie on August 5, 2014

I don’t really eat “Paleo”….I mean, “not that there’s anything wrong with that” :)

But- I do love trying new homemade recipes that are tasty, healthy, and full of real nutritious ingredients and this one definitely fits the bill. These muffins have a good amount of protein and fiber and most importantly, my 2 year old loves them! These are seriously so good I think I’ve made about 2-3 batches a week the last month or so.

The original recipe, Coconut Flour Primal Banana Bread was found here.

I modified it slightly by adding Chia seeds and converting it to a muffin recipe. I found that this recipe makes 12 perfect muffins.

My little helper:

P1040533

Ingredients:

3 ripe, mashed bananas
1/3 c butter, melted
6 eggs
2 tbsp honey
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 c coconut flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt                                                                                                                                                                           1 tbsp Chia seeds
1 tbsp cinnamon

Directions:

Combine bananas and melted butter. Mix well. Add eggs, honey, and vanilla and whisk until eggs are combined.

In separate bowl stir together dry ingredients. Add to wet ingredients.
Transfer batter to greased muffin pan and bake at 350 for 45 minutes or until toothpick inserted in middle comes out clean.

Makes 12 muffins.

Enjoy!

Hello old friends!!

by Angie on August 2, 2014

Hello!!

I’m so excited to be back with you. The last couple of years have been sort of crazy. I didn’t realize how much a baby could throw your world for a loop!! In a great way overall, though! :)

But- I really miss blogging, so I’m excited to get back to it.

Life has certainly changed, so I’m excited to take Angie’s Appetite for Life in a slightly new direction. I’ll be here sharing my joys and challenges of parenting (and feeding) a toddler, meal planning for a family, and trying to stay fit and healthy in a busy life.

And I can’t wait to catch up with you. Drop me a line and let me know how you’re doing…..and I’ll be back soon….can’t wait to share one of my favorite new recipes for Paleo Coconut Banana muffins —- Coming soon! :)
