Flourless Almond Macadamia Muffins

It has been a while since I don’t bake. It is snowing and gray, so with this kind of weather I’d love to have a hot cup of coffee with a nice nutritious muffin.

Yesterday morning  my little puppies ( I have two 3 lb Chihuahuas) were urging me to take them out. They didn’t understand it was cold and snowing. It was so cold that Rhea didn’t want to step outside the door mat and Romulo who is more adventurous, walked about 6 feet away when he started limping on one leg and then another leg and before he could come back to the mat he wasn’t able to walk. This happen in a matter of seconds. I carried both of them and went in side. They spent the rest of the morning next to the fire-place.

This muffins are delicious! Only good things in there like almonds, macadamias, coconut flakes. They freeze perfectly, pop them in the microwave and you can have a healthy warm breakfast! Give them a try, and let me know how you like them!

  1. What sweet dogs! I don’t think they would like getting their paws cold in the snow and it would be dangerous for them to go out. It is good that they are enjoying the fire! I love the muffins! I am just off to the shops and will see if I can buy Coconut oil…..I dont think I will get it in my regular store. Fingers crossed!

  2. Hi Lety. You made me laugh! I think at the very least they deserve cashmere slippers!
    I found the coconut oil, but forgot the Flaxseed ( I have a head cold and was not thinking straight)…but I am one step closer! Have a great weekend and keep warm.

    • Flaxseed is so convenient to have, you can throw a teaspoon in your pancake mixture, in your yogurt, oatmeal, which ever bakery and you’l make more nutritious beacause of its omega 3 and fiber! Take care!
