4th of July Paleo MeeNut Butter Trifle Recipe
Aloha! Looking for a last minute dessert idea for the 4th? Here’s my take on a paleo “trifle”. I adapted Against All Grain’s Almond Flour Zucchini Bread recipe and used MeeNut Butter instead of almond flour for my cake base and these came out so bomb! I made them into muffins and they taste great on their own if you ever wanted to make these again!
Recipe: Paleo MeeNut Butter Protein Zucchini Muffins:
8oz Paleo MeeNut Butter
5oz organic gala apples – peeled, cored, cubed (instead of banana)
5oz organic zucchini (cubed)
½ cup raw organic honey
1 tbsp vanilla (optional)
3 organic eggs
2 tsp cinnamon
⅛ tsp sea salt
1 tsp baking soda
*1 scoop Julian Bakery egg white protein
*The mixture was a little too wet so I added one scoop of the egg white protein and these came out perfectly!
Mix all wet ingredients in a Vitamix blender until smooth. Add in the dry ingredients and mix until fully incorporated. Pour into muffin tray and bake at 350 degrees F for 20 min. Cool and enjoy! Yields about 16-18 muffins.
For the cream:
Whip up some coconut whipped cream (I used Natural Value’s full fat organic coconut milk – no preservatives, no additives, no BPA) for the cream layer. I don’t like adding any sweeteners to this but if you wanted to, you could probably add a little stevia or maple to the whipped cream.
For the berries:
I used blueberries and strawberries. Wash and pat dry. For the strawberries, remove stems and slice into thin triangles. Squeeze and coat with some organic lemon juice. If you have time, cover and let them sit overnight in the fridge.
Assembling the trifle:
I assembled these in individual mason jars and they came out really pretty. Remove cupcake liner from zucchini muffins and cut into quarters. Layer the bottom with the cake. Add a layer of the coconut whipped cream. Add a layer of the strawberries. Add a layer of the blueberries. Continue on until you run out of room. I sprinkled these with a finishing touch of shredded coconut on top instead of more whipped cream. Serve immediately.
Remember to post and tag pics of me on social media if you ever make any of these recipes! Mahalo and enjoy!
