Good morning! I bring to you my delicious breakfast from this morning. It’s still a maple almond butter “muffin top” but a little twist. As a side note, you see that the calories for this “muffin top” is about 190, but when I make it, it can get up to 250. Sometimes I add nuts on top or extra almond butter, just depends on my mood.
This recipe is low in sugar but I have made it using natural cane sugar (instead of Stevia) and pure maple syrup (instead of sugar-free). Either way, both options are delicious, just depends what you are looking for in a recipe. I was getting a tad tired of the original so I decided to play with the recipe a bit.
It’s also dairy and egg free unlike the original recipe. If you find that the mixture is too thick, simply add more milk until you reach desired consistency (or vice-versa). Enjoy!Ingredients (Makes Two):
2/3 Cup of Rolled Oats (Not Instant)*
1/3 Cup of So Delicious Coconut Milk*
1 Tbsp Natural Almond Butter*
2 Tbsps of Unsweetened Coconut Flakes
2 Tbsps Sugar-Free Maple Syrup**
1/4 tsp of Baking Powder
1/2 tsp of Vanilla Extract*
1 Packet of Stevia*
1 Large bowl and 2 small bowls
Non-Stick Cooking Spray
Mix everything well into the large bowl. Spray the two smaller bowls with non-stick cooking spray and divide the mixture between them.
Microwave “muffin top” for about 2 minutes. Turn upside down onto another plate and let cool. Repeat to second “muffin top.” Once both are cooled, turn the “muffin tops” around and drizzle them with extra maple syrup, if desired. Dig in!

*Feel free to make your own substitutions for these ingredients. Use gluten-free oats, to make it allergen friendly. If switching the sugar make it 1 tsp of sugar of your choice. You can also use any kind of extract sugar as coconut, maple, etc.
**If you would like, use 1 Tbsp of pure maple syrup instead, but sugars will go up to 4.5g and calories would be 215 per “muffin top.”
I though I’d be random and show you a couple of pictures of me. No, no not conceited or anything. I’m just happy that 1. my hair is growing and 2. Fall is upon us and that means scarves, boots and long sleeve shirts!
Question: Are you a Fall lover? Or do you wish it was still summer?
Bleh, I am summer-ed out. Bring on the cold!
