We’re getting back into the groove of things after spring break last week. We had a great week together, ice fishing, sleepover at Nana and Grandpa’s, swimming, playing with friends, and baking with Mom! Kids were happy with their week together, and this Mama was pooped out by the end. Man oh man all three kids keep me busy! But really, I wouldn’t want it any other way.
I’ve been experimenting with a muffin recipe that is only sweetened with veggies and fruit. Ever since I tried this pear and parsnip teacake by Healing Family Eats, I knew I had to try some more baking with parsnip. I mean, it’s kind of genius. Parsnip is the perfect addition to sugar free baking. The parsnip adds just the right amount of sweetness in these muffins, without overpowering the taste.
I didn’t realize how much I was missing muffins until I made these. I used to make, and eat, gluten-free muffins often. They were my go-to treat and snack. Hubby tasted these and commented that they’re better than the dry gluten-free muffins I used to make. I didn’t know whether to take it as a compliment or an insult, but I’ll go with compliment.
I brought some of these on our ice fishing trip last week, perfect on-the-go snack, something I’m always looking for on AIP!
Hi! I’m Rebecca, a Registered Holistic Nutritionist and recipe developer! I was diagnosed with lichen sclerosis in 2006 when I was 21 years old. I felt deeply that healing was not going to come in the form of steroid creams and ointments, so I looked to natural health care. I always considered myself a healthy eater, and spent years experimenting with nutrition and different diet plans. However, I finally felt I was on the true road to health and healing once I started the paleo autoimmune protocol!
