Oliver took a two hour nap today, for I think, the first time ever! Since I had so much time, I decided to make some muffins. They're gluten free and delicious! And since they don't have any added sugar, we gave a few bites to Oliver, and he loved them! The recipe is from Elana's Pantry, a website that I just discovered a few weeks ago. All of her recipes are gluten free and most use almond flour. We've tried several of them and they have all been delicious. Here's the recipe:

Gluten Free Carrot Banana Muffins
2 cups blanched almond flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon celtic sea salt
1 tablespoon cinnamon
1 cup dates, pitted
3 ripe bananas
3 eggs
1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
¼ cup coconut oil, melted
1 ½ cups carrots, shredded
¾ cup walnuts, finely chopped
  1. In a small bowl, combine almond flour, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon
  2. In a food processor, combine dates, bananas, eggs, vinegar and oil
  3. Transfer mixture to a large bowl
  4. Blend dry mixture into wet until thoroughly combined
  5. Fold in carrots and walnuts
  6. Spoon mixture into paper lined muffin tins
  7. Bake at 350° for 25 minutes
Makes 18 muffins
