Caulika muffins

I am very excited to share my first recipe!

These little muffins come out in the funnest shade of green. They’re perfect Saint Patrick’s treats.

Being French, I could not live my life without bread. And I run a lot, so I need my carbs. I also have read bunch about how evil gluten is, inflammatory and fattening and all so I try to keep it low.

Ingredients:

  • 1/4 cauliflower head, riced in food processor
  • 4 big handfuls of kale
  • 1/2c water
  • 1/4 c apple sauce

  • 1c almond milk
  • 1 TBSP apple cider vinegar
  • 2 TBSP olive oil

  • 1/2c flour (I grind my own whole wheat)
  • 1c rolled oats
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 TBSP ground flax
  • 1 tsp each baking powder + soda

Directions:

  • Pre-heat oven for at least 15 min at 400F
  • Process the first 4 ingredients, dump into a bowl, add the next 3
  • Blend the last group in a large bowl,  and add the liquids
  • Bake for about 25 min – better to err on a little more cooking time as the batter is very liquidy

Serve with Scott Jurek’s soy-based vegan cheese; I’ll share that recipe later 🙂

This makes about 12 muffins at only 90 calories each!

ps: The hardest thing about this post was actually the photo, but what I read on http://www.crumblycookie.net/food-photography/ really helped.

My simplified take-aways: use a shallow depth of field + get the white balance correct.

Then, I looked at my favorite blogs for photo organization inspiration and ta da! The Hulk muffin. I need to wipe my lens, too.

Thanks for the helpful food photography tips, Bridget!
