YOGA BEYOND WORDS with Cara-Lynne Auld
Let's Go Crazy...

Ah, the New Year, how I love the New Year, a fresh start.  The first week of January always feels so ripe with possibilities.  The chance to reinvent yourself, your life, your future.  My love of the new year and new beginnings often leads me to go a little crazy with the resolutions.

Well, let's be honest, I'm a complete resolution junkie.  This year (so far) I have resolved to drink more water, go to bed earlier, declutter our entire house, eat more fish, get outdoors everyday, do yoga everyday, judge less, drink coffee less, have more patience, and organize my life.  Really, the list continues but you get the picture.

*They are all in my head...and apparently now in this blog.

The idea of a fresh start is intoxicating.  Even if you like yourself okay, which incidentally I do, the chance to become a little more, a little better is hard to resist.  Case in point for Christmas I requested knitting needles because this was the year I was going to become crafty (bless my Mom who knows me and included the gift receipt so I could return them and just buy the toque)...

After many attempts to create a perfectly delicious flourless muffin (and many many taste tests) this recipe has become a staple in our house.  Each week I make a variation of this recipe; sometimes adding pumpkin seeds or sprinkling maple flakes on top before popping them in the oven.  You can easily replace the almond butter with sunflower butter making it a great addition to your children's lunch box.

Flourless Sweet Potato Muffins
¾ cup cooked sweet potatoes or squash or pumpkin (or bananas -2 medium)
¾ cup almond butter (or sunflower butter so its NUT FREE)
1 egg (or flax meal replacement)
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1/3 cup maple syrup
1 Tbsp chia seeds
1 tsp baking soda
Preheat the oven to 350 F.  Mix all ingredients together (I use a hand mixer and blend until smooth).  Place mixture into a greased 8x8 baking dish or muffin pan (I like to use muffin liners).  Bake for 20-25 minutes.  Makes 12.
