Tasty Tuesday | Have You Tried The Almond Test?

Good morning peeps! Welcome back to my blog spot! I’m going to jump right into this Tasty Tuesday post. I was batting sugar cravings since last week and man I just had the urge to bake something! Not just anything though, it had to be healthy because well, yah know…#Goals! I have been wanting to try some banana apple muffins from Beachbody’s healthy FIXATE cooking show, but I was missing one ingredient… Almond Flour.

I have never used almond flour before, so I very curious to test it out. My thoughts were flying trying to guess the taste of it. Did I really want to make muffins that actually taste like almonds? Hmm.. I’m not a big fan of the but family, but I only eat them because it’s the perfect healthy fat. So I figured it was time to try the almond test. On Sunday, I made sure I grabbed a bag of almond flour at Aldi to prep for what I hoped to be some amazing muffins to get rid of my sweet tooth.

If you have never tried almond flour, check out this recipe which I got right from Autumn Calabrese FIXATE cook book on Beachbody on Demand. You remember what that is right? Ok, for new readers, it’s basically the Netflix for fitness. I go on “BOD” to access over 700 fitness programs! But, along with that comes a cool and convenient cooking show! So ALL credit for this recipe goes to FIXATE.

Be sure to let me know your thoughts on this almond flour test. I honestly thought with the apple & banana mix, it would give off a sweeter taste, but it didn’t. These muffins were so moist and still good. But it clearly didn’t get rid of my sweet tooth, but I do know of another healthy snack that hit the spot! I will share that on another Tasty Tuesday!
