Mee Eat Paleo ®

I tried incorporating some Paleo MeeNut Butter treats for the first time this weekend for a fitness expo at CrossFit Long Beach. These were a hit so they may very well become a yummy staple at my booths from now on!!! 

RECIPE: PALEO MEENUT BUTTER CUPCAKES/BROWNIES

INGREDIENTS:
1 cup (8 oz) Paleo Almond MeeNut Butter for cupcakes (2 cups or 16 oz for brownies)
2 organic eggs
½ cup raw organic honey
1 medium organic apple (approx. 5 – 5.25 oz peeled and cored)
1 tbsp pure vanilla extract (optional)
1 tbsp raw organic cacao nibs (optional)

1 tsp baking soda
¼ tsp sea salt
¼ tsp ground cinnamon
¼ tsp ground cayenne (optional)

½ cup unsweetened cocoa powder

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit
  2. Peel and core your apple and cut into 1 inch chunks (I used an organic gala apple)
  3. Add to a Vitamix blender: eggs, honey, vanilla, apples, cacao nibs, baking soda, sea salt, cinnamon, cayenne and blend on high for about 15 seconds until smooth
  4. Add 1 cup of Paleo Almond MeeNut Butter (2 cups for brownies) and blend for about 30 seconds until smooth. If adding 2 cups of MeeNut Butter for brownies, you will need to use your masher tool as mixture will be thick and hard to blend.
  5. Pour liquid mixture into mixing bowl
  6. Slowly fold in cocoa powder and mix thoroughly with a spatula until fully incorporated
  7. Line muffin pan with paper baking cups, fill 3/4 , and bake for approx. 20 minutes in a convection oven on low for cupcakes (18-20 for brownies). May need to add about 10 min for a still oven.
  8. Remove from muffin pan immediately to cool on a cooling rack
  9. Once cooled you may top with a frosting, ganache, or chocolate drizzle of choice. When I served these, I was in a hurry so I just melted some enjoy life dark chocolate and dressed with a cute dollop in the center for the cupcakes and a nice drizzle for the brownies, on top of a bed of organic coconut chips.
  10. Enjoy!
