I posted this on my Facebook page the other day:
“Saw a recipe for “Skinny Strawberry Chocolate Chip Muffins”.
Every time you see the word “skinny” in front of any recipe, advertisement, etc…consider it a warning for a low-calorie, short-term satisfaction, metabolic damaging offering.
Said recipe called for all-purpose flour, sugar, brown sugar, applesauce, strawberries, and chocolate chips… and ONE egg white, ONE!
Not only is this muffin too few calories, but the ratios are severely unbalanced. ZERO fat, high amounts of sugar, and VERY little protein pshh ONE egg white, get outta here).
The only “skinny” muffin recipe for me is one with coconut oil, grass-fed butter, WHOLE eggs, honey, and coconut flour!”
Thus inspiring THIS recipe that wasn’t even close to an adapted recipe since my recipe is FULL-FAT and amazing!
