Cinnamon muffins

Yummy morning #banting rusks!

Unbeatable, delicious charcuterie with avo and egg … Just the way I like a Saturday morning.

Breakfast charcuterie

Mix 100g butter (softened) with 3/4 cup xylitol, using a hand blender. Add 2 eggs and whisk until light and fluffy (1 minute). Add 3 mashed bananas slowly (beating after each banana). Then add 1 cup almond flour, 1 tsp baking powder, 1 tsp vanilla extract, 1 twist of himalayan salt. Beat with electric beater until all well mixed. Spoon into moulds and bake at 200 for 20 minutes. Deeeelicious!      

Banana muffins

When I’m not munching on double cream yoghurt and grain-free granola, then this hot breakfast does it for me. Boiled egg on avo, with a sprinkling of salt and pepper. Too delicious on a cold, wintry morning.
