Lately, I have been shifting my eating habits to as close to a 20:4 as I can stand. This is where I fast 20 hours and eat 4. Understanding that I am living the last year of my thirties has been a sort of slowing down to meet the reality that my body is an older one, and I need to match my pace, as far as my slowing metabolism goes. Each day I will eat:

8:00am

keto cereal: 3 Tbsp hemp hearts, five chopped almonds, five chopped pecans, 1 Tbsp chia seeds, heavy cream

coffee with 1 big scoop Coconut Vanilla MCT Oil Powder and heavy cream

1:30pm

sautéed chicken thighs with keto Thai curry sauce, cauliflower rice, and mushrooms w 2 Tbsp sour cream

3:30pm

keto chocolate chip muffin topped with peanut butter

I baked chocolate chip muffins the other day before making breakfast using this recipe.

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 1/2 Cups keto wheat flour
  • 1 teaspoon Baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon Kosher salt
  • 1/2 Cup Swerve granulated sugar
  • 3 Large eggs, beaten
  • 8 ounces Greek Yogurt
  • 2 teaspoons Vanilla Extract
  • 1 cup dark chocolate chips sugar free

INSTRUCTIONS

  • Pre-heat the oven to 400F and line a 12 cup muffin pan with liners. 
  • Spray the inside of the liners with cooking spray. 
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the almond flour, baking soda, salt and sweetener. 
  • Now add in the beaten eggs, greek yogurt and vanilla extract. 
  • Finally, fold in the chocolate chips. 
  • Scoop the batter into the muffin cups evenly using a scoop. 
  • Bake in the oven for 20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. 

What I enjoyed about this recipe was I used keto wheat flour, although the original ingredient called for almond flour. I do not like using almond flour, as it does not stick together well and crumbles, but the wheat keto flour is as close to non-keto flour as I think I am going to get. The consistency reminds me of a scone. I think if I make this muffin again, I’ll add chopped pecans and a Tbsp chia seeds.

Hello, my name is Hilary, and I'm not exactly sure why, but I often find myself wondering about the many mysteries of life. Throughout my life, I have learned that life is exciting when perceived as infinite refactoring for discovery and enjoyment. That being said, I enjoy learning about the existential crises of others and the creative strategies people use to achieve goals through barriers, challenges, and obstacles.
