I love to wake up to a cup of tea and a yummy warm muffin! Yummmm… delicious!
In today’s post, Anna and I would like to share with you a Gluten Free Muffin Roundup!
Making the first guest appearance in our roundup today is none other than the amazing, the wonderful, the ‘drool worthy’, one and only:
Breakfast Oatmeal Muffins are deliciously moist and filling. They are made with… you guessed it… oatmeal. Did you know that eating oatmeal can increase your health, one bowl at a time?
- It helps lower cholesterol and the risk of cancer.
- Helps you lose weight because it makes your stomach feel full and is low in calories.
- Contains ‘good carbs’ so it boosts your energy levels and helps get you going in the morning.
- Contains insoluble fiber which aids in fighting constipation.
- Helps memory because it contains vitamin B.
- It helps your skin. You can make an oatmeal mask for dry skin / acne problems and it helps with itchy skin.
- Great for your hair. Just rub it in your hair, (like shampoo), while in the shower, let it sit for a couple minutes, wash it out completely, then dry your hair. Lots of over the counter shampoos have oatmeal in them.
Next on the agenda…. the scrumptious, heavenly, out-of-this-world:
These Mini Flax’n Apple Muffin Cakes are a mix between a muffin and a cake. They contain flax which has amazing health benefits such as:
- Contains a compound that helps the body handle estrogen and can help lower the risk for breast cancer, ease hot flashes and night sweats.
- Contains fiber, protein, magnesium and thiamine.
Who doesn’t like to sink their teeth into a delicious apple that contains wonderful health benefits:
- Helps to lower your risk for cancer, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, diabetes, heart disease, gallstones, and cataracts.
- Constipation and irritable bowel syndrome relieved.
- Helps with weight.
- Aids in detoxifying your liver.
Onward now to the delectably delightful and succulent:
These heavenly little round divine gems are also so good for us.
- They contain the highest antioxidant capacity of all fresh fruit.
- Neutralizes free radical which can affect disease and helps prevent aging in the body.
- Helps preserve good vision and promotes brain and urinary tract health.
- Aids in lowering heart disease, diabetes and helps prevent cancer.
- Helps digestion and with constipation.
- Natural anti-depressant.
No wonder I like blueberries so much. I just wish I could grow these puppies in the region where I live!
And finally… the tasty, savory, fit-for-a-king:
- Low in calories, high in Manganese, and contains 10% of the RDA of dietary fiber.
- Helps reduce the risk of cancer, stroke and heart disease by helping to lower blood pressure and cholesterol.
- Is a natural anti-inflammatory.
- Helps with prostate health.
I just love it when I can incorporate healthy ingredients into recipes that I know will not only be delicious, but healthy as well. So…. which recipe will you make first?
Here’s to staying healthy, happy and whole!
