It ended up being just the guy and I for Thanksgiving. After he dropped his girls off in the morning, he came over and we started the Thanksgiving feast prep. I have to say, he's a huge help in the kitchen. He loves being involved in cooking. He's my food prep man.
Since it was just the two of us, I didn't end up making that much food. Turkey breast, mashed potatoes with cauliflower, healthy green bean casserole, homemade biscuits (recipe coming soon!). For dessert, I ate raw pumpkin pie from the freezer and the guy had one of those mini cherry pies.
After we ate, he helped me put up my Christmas tree which he was not excited about. Once he realized it was a pre-lit tree he was much happier. Can't say I blame him. I don't know anyone who likes struggling with lights.
Over the weekend, I was busy testing the software for my healthy meal plans launching in January. I'm really excited about it! Everything's simple, in one easy to read PDF with a printable plan, shopping list and nutrition data.
The weekend wasn't all work though. I spent a fair amount of time cruising the internet for gifts for the guy. Too bad I can't pay him in muffins because these Almond Flour Gingerbread Muffins are present worthy.
The winter spices make them warm, cozy and they're filling with the healthy fat. I like these muffins because they're lower in carbs and higher in protein. A better way to snack!
I didn't sweeten the frosting, but you could add a touch of maple syrup or liquid stevia to sweeten it up. Either way these muffins are perfect for winter eating!
Almond Flour Gingerbread Pancakes
- Preheat oven to 350 and lightly spray a muffin tin with nonstick cooking spray.
- Using a standing mixer or hand mixer, blend together the eggs, honey, molasses, and vanilla until smooth.
- In a separate bowl, stir together the spices, flours, and baking soda.
- Add half the flour mixture to the liquid mixture and stir to combine. Then stir in the oil and remaining flour.
- Divide the mixture evenly among 12 muffin cavities. Bake 15 minutes at 350 F or until a toothpick can be inserted in the center clean.
- Cool the muffins on a wire baking rack. While the muffins cool, prepare the optional frosting by stirring the ingredients together. Drizzle the muffins with the frosting.
- Enjoy immediately, or store in the refrigerator up to 7 days or freezer 30 days.
