Blueberry muffins for happy arteries
I used to think I loved those regular muffins you find at most local coffee shops. But man, once I started researching how to eat for optimal health, I realised they were causing my body to consistently gain weight and be hormonally out of whack.

large ripe bananas
pitted medjool dates
Zest and fruit of 1 small lemon
eggs are fine
apple cider vinegar
1 punnet of blueberries
Preheat oven to 180C (350 F)
Line your muffin tin with “easy-release” muffin tin liners (the "
if you care
" brand ones are amazing).
Get out your blender, and throw the first 5 dry ingredients in. Blend until you have flour-like consistency. Pour dry mixture into a bowl.
Into the same blender, add the next 7 wet ingredients in and blend until smooth. Pour the wet ingredients over the dry ones , and mix as little as possible until just combined
Fold the blueberries gently into the mixture
Add muffin batter to your muffin tin liners. Really mound up the batter in each muffin cup (they won't rise much)
Put muffins in oven to bake until they are golden brown
When baked, let them rest on a cooling rack for a few minutes before you devour them!
