Hello, I'm Linden and I am so excited to be contributing to the Gypsy Threads blog! I hope to inspire you to cook and bake some healthy meals and treats. I have three hungry boys and one husband to feed, and I try to strike a balance between nutritious and delicious. I am in no way an expert, everything I know I learned from watching my mom and trial and error.

My first recipe is what we like to call Power Muffins. If you need a quick grab and go breakfast in the morning this is for you! Everyone in our family loves them!


-2 C. chopped dates

-2 C. hot water

-1⁄2 C. brown sugar

-1 1⁄2 tsp. Salt

-2 tsp. Vanilla

-1⁄4 C. buttermilk

-2 tsp. Baking soda

-1 C. oats

-2 TB. Coconut oil

-2 eggs

-1 C. flax meal

-1 C. almond meal

-1 C. oat bran

-2 TB. Wheat flour

-1 C. choc chips 

In a blender mix everything from your dates down to your eggs. Mix your flax, almond meal, oat bran and flour in a separate bowl. Add the wet ingredients to the dry and then add your cup of chocolate chips.

**Spray your muffin pans. My new favorite find at Trader Joe's is this coconut cooking spray. Adds an extra hit of flavor to all your baked goods!**

Bake at 350 for 24-25 minutes. Let cool on a cooling rack. I love to store them in the freezer so we can all grab them as we go out the door in the morning.

-The baby is a big fan of these muffins! Hope you enjoy!!
