GF DF Carrot Cake Muffins

2.5 cups of Pamela’s GF Baking Mix

1 tsp pumpkin pie spice

1 tsp cinnamon

1/2 tsp sea salt

2 eggs

1/3 cup monkfruit sweetner

1/3 cup of expeller pressed grapeseed oil or coconut oil

1 1/3 c. buttermilk(unsweetened almond milk plus 1 T vinegar- let sit 5 min)

1 tsp vanilla extract

2/3 c finely chopped walnuts

1 1/2 cups of grated carrots

For topping:

2 T of ghee- softened

2 T of Pamela’s GF baking mix

1 t cinnamon

Preheat oven to 375. Grease muffin pan( I use coconut oil).

Prepare almond milk as “buttermilk”,set aside.Place all dry ingredients except monkfruit sweetener in a mixing bowl, then sift together.

Whisk together eggs,sugar,oil,”buttermilk” and vanilla. Combine with sifted dry ingredients. Add in carrots and walnuts.

For the topping: add together baking mix, cinnamon, and ghee in a small bowl. Use a pastry cutter or fork to combine(should be lumpy)

Place muffin batter into muffin pan-filling cups a little over 3/4 full. Add a little topping to each muffin.

Place in oven and bake 25 min. or until muffins are golden or lightly browned.


There’s something comforting about oatmeal…

My thoughts and prayers are with the world now during this time. Please stay home if you are able, and stay well friends. This is a recipe children could easily help with as well!

Here is my favorite oatmeal recipe:


Oats 2 c. (I like Bob’s Red Mill GF Oats)

3 c. Unsweetened Almond milk or alternative milk

3/4 c blueberries and or strawberries

2 t of ghee or grass fed butter

1/4 t cinnamon

4 scoops of collagen (I like Vital Proteins)

2 t of maple syrup

2 dashes Celtic or Sea Salt

For the side 1/2 c of almond milk -warmed

Serves 3-4

Other add in ideas: protein powder, chia seeds, sliced bananas, cacao powder, almond butter, applesauce, semi sweet chocolate chips(I like Lily’s because they are sweetened with stevia, honey (instead of maple syrup)

I have a gas stove, so keep in mind you may need to tailor the amount of almond milk to your preference. I DO NOT like mushy oatmeal…this is more coarse.

Add oats & almond milk to a saucepan. Bring to a boil., stirring occasionally. Bring down to a medium to low setting, and stir-add in ghee or butter. Cook for approximately 4-5 minutes stirring occasionally. If you want a softer texture, cook longer and add a little more almond milk.

Add in the rest of the ingredients off the heat except berries.

Top with berries and serve. I like to add just a couple of tablespoons of warm almond milk right on top with a dash of cinnamon.
