Paleo Apple Bacon Muffins

These low carb and paleo Apple Bacon Muffins are so fluffy, moist, delicious, and they are a perfect make-ahead breakfast! 

Paleo Apple Bacon Muffins

Guys, these muffins! I got this idea after making my apple bacon pancakes, and how much I loved them. The two flavors go together so well and I just love that combination of sweet and savory.

While pancakes are amazing, I wanted something that I can make ahead of time since mornings are when I’m the most productive and I’d rather spend that time getting some work done than in the kitchen. Enter: these Paleo Apple Bacon Muffins!

These muffins can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for up to a week, and I’ve been just toasting them in the oven in the morning and eating them with eggs. SO delicious. They are even better with a slather of grass-fed butter on them, and it’s a great go-to snack as well.

This recipe makes 6 large muffins, but you can double the recipe for a standard 12-muffin pan. I actually highly recommend you do with these Paleo Apple Bacon Muffins because you won’t regret it if you do. There’s something so delightful when apple and bacon comes together, and I’m pretty sure we all need more of it in our lives… Right? Just go make these if you agree!

Paleo Chocolate Almond Butter Collagen Fat Bombs

I’m not much of a snacker. I like to eat 3 solid meals each day, and make them big enough so I don’t get hungry in between them. I don’t eat a ketogenic diet, but I do like to keep it lower in carbs and higher in fat and protein because that’s what makes me feel great. I used to have a blood sugar imbalance back in the days when I used to eat a super high sugar diet, so healing myself through quality fats and protein has made such a huge difference in my health.

While I try to avoid desserts and I don’t even crave them anymore ever since overhauling my diet, I do like a piece chocolate once in a while after a meal. My favorite go-to has been these Chocolate Almond Butter Collagen Fat Bombs that are sugar free but chock full of healthy fats and protein!

I recently discovered Perfect Supplements because they reached out to me and asked if I would like to try their products. After looking at how cleanly they source their supplements, and how much they care about the environment and the workers behind their ingredients (all their products are Fair Trade!), I had to say yes!

One of my favorite products I’ve tried so far is their Hydrolyzed Collagen from grass-fed pasture-raised cows. I’ve been putting it in my coffee every morning, hot or iced, and it dissolves easily into liquids so you can add them easily to recipes like these fat bombs. You can’t tast them and I love that I’m getting high-quality protein (literally, the only ingredient in it is Hydrolyzed Collagen!). My hair and nails have been growing like crazy ever since I started taking collagen.

Some other health benefits of collagen:

  • Improve Skin Health
  • Promote Younger, Firmer Skin
  • Support Joint Health
  • Improve Gut Function and Digestion
  • Keep Excess Inflammation in Check
  • Build and Restore Muscle
  • Support a Healthy Metabolism
  • Keep Appetite In Check
  • Promote Healthy Brain Function
  • Promote Deeper Sleep

I’ve definitely been seeing some great results from it, and anyone can benefit from addition of high-quality collagen so I highly recommend you check out Perfect SupplementsHydrolyzed Collagen.

I love that I was able to amp up the nutrients in these fat bombs with the addition of collagen, and they turned out so rich, chocolate-y, and delicious. Because of their high fat and protein content, just one of these Chocolate Almond Butter Collagen Fat Bombs will kill your sugar cravings and keep you satiated until the next meal. I didn’t feel the need to add any sweeteners but you can add a bit of honey or maple syrup if you want!

Coconut Mixed Berry Popsicles (Paleo, Vegan)

These sweet and creamy Coconut Mixed Berry Popsicles are paleo and vegan, and they are a delicious and healthy treat on a hot summer day!

Coconut Mixed Berry Popsicles

It’s almost 4th of July, and I’m relishing in the fact that it falls on a Tuesday. It feels like an extra-long weekend, although Monday is a work day for many people. From what I’ve been hearing, most people are working from home or taking Monday off, so It feels like an extra-indulgent mid-week break!

While I usually don’t post recipes on weekends, I wanted to get these super summery and scrumptious Coconut Mixed Berry Popsicles to you before you start the celebration with BBQs and fireworks. I just love the combination of berries and cream, and even better when it’s in popsicle form!

I love that these mixed berry popsicles are festive as well, with their red, white, and blue hues. I used strawberries and blueberries, but you can use any other types of berries as well, like raspberries or blackberries. Either way, you have to try them because this is such an easy recipe and it’s so dang yummy.

What fun plans do you have for 4th of July? I think we might head to the beach to watch the fireworks and try out some food trucks. Of course, I will enjoy this yummy cold treat as well since they’ll be calling my name from the freezer. While I’m not a sweets-lover, I can definitely enjoy 1 or 2 coconut mixed berry popsicles, when it’s over 80 degrees out!
