I made these with quinoa flour and I used coconut oil for the fat....these are now my go-to muffin recipe. I'm curious if I could replace the amaranth with cooked quinoa. I will have to give it a try!
Onto some other good eats, I wanted to share with you last nights easy-peasy fast food dinner. I made collard and romaine veggie wraps along with the hemp dip from Heathy's blog and a simple honey-dijon dipping sauce. For the veggies I used carrots, lentil sprouts, red pepper, avocado and cucumber. I had it layed out family style so Ry and I could make whatever combo's we wanted. This was probably one of my favorite dinners so far as it was so delicous and I was able to consume a lot of raw veggies in a delicious way.
Love the color combo! The veggies you could use for this are endless...jicama, zucchini, daikon, cabbage, brocolli, cauliflower, fermented veggies. These are going to be a staple for my lunches come the summer when I have access to more organic veggies.
Here is the whole set-up! It took up half of our dining table...AKA...coffee table that is actually a large chest.
This was an awesome dressing that went really well with the hemp dip. We drizzled a bit of both sauced in our wraps and really loved it! I just mixed equal parts of dijon mustard with equal parts honey. You could use whatever sweetener you like! For a different mustard dipping sauce check out Averie's version. She just did a post on veggie wraps using cabbage. I love cabbage so I'll have to give that a go next time.
Here's one of my creations without any sauce added..yet! Sorry about the blurry photo this was a one-handed attempt!
Here is what the filling looks like after everything is added. Love the little hints of red and yellow in there!
Here they are right out of the freezer. Don't mind the color differences. I had to use more cacao powder and coconut than she asked for and I didn't exactly measure to make sure I was adding in equal amounts. You will make more filling than chocolate, just so you know.
Alvie playing hide-and-go-seek in the blanket! He is such a sweety and he has such beautiful black and white patterning. So, if you are looking for a great kitty to add to your home and you live near Nelson, give the SPCA a call at 1-250-352-7178. Thank you!
