Delicious Muffin Recipe for Menopause

Updated: Feb 18

We can have it all ladies! Here's a delicious recipe you can enjoy as soon as you wake up to start the day.

I created this delicious, gluten free, dairy free muffin recipe for menopause to have alternatives to my boring breakfast routine. Having gone through menopause I still needed to get back to my usual body weight so I researched healthy ingredients that were lower in calories that I could have for breakfast, like oatmeal, fruit, nuts and seeds. Part of my problem was that after breakfast and lunch, I still needed to feel satiated, so I snacked on more nuts throughout the day and at night until I found out how many calories I was eating and why my weight was climbing. The first thing I did was stop buying and eating nuts. The next breakthrough came when I found ways to make the healthy ingredients more exciting with new recipes. That's how I came up with the breakfast muffin. It hit all the spots: flavour, energy, nutrients, calories and satiation.

The happy ending is that I've been losing weight with the new recipes and enjoying the creative control I missed so much from not understanding what ingredients I could play with.

The recipe is gloriously simple.
