menstruation muffins

IMG_1075.jpg

These muffins are both nourishing and nutrient dense, perfect for the luteal & menstrual phases of the cycle. Packed with protein and healthy fats, cholesterol to help stabilize your blood sugar, omega 3 fatty acids to reduce pms/painful menses and seed cycling yumminess to help balance your hormones over time. These muffins also come packed with vitamins and minerals to help feed your fertility- such as folate, vitamins b6, b12, and d.

This recipe makes about 12 large muffins. Enjoy warm and store in the fridge for future snacking. You can also freeze them for a future menstruation food emergency and toast with ghee for extra fat and fat soluble vitamins (particularly vitamin a). Enjoy for breakfast, a mid afternoon snack or late night craving !

i n g r e d i e n t s

*try and source the closest to organic & pasture raised as your budget allows for

2-3 ripe bananas

2-3 organic pasture raised eggs

3/4 cup rolled oats

1/2 cup chopped sunflower seeds

1/2 cup chopped walnuts

4 tablespoons hemp seeds

1 cup dried cranberry, chopped dates, or raisins

1-4 tablespoons honey 

1-2 tsp cinnamon 

pinch of ground sea salt

r e c i p e 

 Mash bananas in a bowl. Add in the eggs and honey and mix until well blended.

Add in all dry ingredients & slowly and mix together.

Add into muffin containers. Try to avoid single use muffin cups. I prefer using a heart shaped silicone muffin pan because it makes them that much more nourishing !

Bake at 350 for about 12-15 minutes

& enjoy !
