Happy Belated Valentine's Day

Happy Belated Valentine’s Day


On this day that many celebrate as one filled with love and the art of couples being romanced and romantic, I want all to remember that above all else Love yourself. Give yourself a flower, a lovely cup of tea.  Be kind to yourself, savor a nice dark chocolate, watch a movie or read a chapter from a book.

You are precious and unique and deserve all good things. Believe in this. Say this out loud to yourself while looking in the mirror.

This is the finest gift you can give yourself.

Now, I will give you a gift as well.


Gluten Free Banana Nutella Muffins

1 ½ cup Pamela’s Bread and Baking Mix Flour (or your favorite GF Baking flour)

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon baking powder

½ teaspoon salt

2 over ripe bananas, mashed

¾ cup honey powder or sweetener of your choice.

1 egg lightly beaten

1/3 cup coconut oil or melted butter

10 teaspoons Nutella ( I make a homemade version)


Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Grease or spray muffin tins or use muffin liners.

In a large bowl, combine flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. In a smaller bowl,

Beat together bananas, sugar, eggs and oil. Add the banana mixture to the dry ingredients and mix until just moistened. Spoon batter into muffin cups.

Spoon a dollop of Nutella on top of each muffin and swirl together well.

Bake in preheated oven for 17 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
