Coconut Almond Muffins look really sinful but are really healthy. Perfect for breakfast or a snack.
I am married to a very picky man.
For starters, he doesn’t like eating ANYTHING twice. And ESPECIALLY not within the same week or, dare I say it, 2 days a row!
Sorry hubs, your married to a food blogger who has to test recipes eleventy million times. Sometimes even in one day.
It’s a sore spot in our marriage. Unless it’s a day of testing out chocolate chip cookies. Then, we’re golden.
Then again, trying to get that man to eat anything that sounds like it COULD be healthy is like trying to swim in a pool of jello.
It’s just impossible.
That is, until these muffins hit his taste buds.
I am always looking for sneaky ways to get a little bit of nutrition into him, especially in the form of a quick and easy snack that I can pack in his lunch. Side note: Making lunches for a man that won’t eat the same thing? Annoying x 100.
Like any man (or, really, any person) he loves his baked goods. So, I figured I could be a ninja and disguise some healthy goodness into a seemingly sinful muffin.
You guys, it worked. Here’s how to do it:
Step one: Bake the muffins JUST before you know that he is going to get back from work. The smell of the house is almost enough to make them think that whatever he is about to eat is loaded with ALL THE BUTTER AND SUGAR.
Step two: Make him eat a fresh muffin (I guess that is obvious.)
OK, so… it’s not the most complicated of plans. Whatever. If it works, it works.
Words from his mouth: WHOA! This is SO moist and perfectly sweet and all that texture… where is that coming from?
I’m still debating whether to tell him it’s from super healthy apple sauce, coconut and almond butter.
I think I’ll keep that our little secret.
