Weights and muffins, oh my!!

I feel so good lifting a little bit these days! My left leg is getting super strong while nothing really exciting is happening with my right leg. I am still on the CPM machine, going to PT twice a week and working on my PT exercises at home...

I have been feeling so sedentary these past few weeks, that it feels good to do something toward keeping some fitness...

I got back to baking today!! While my Dad is here helping me, I am able to do a lot more than if I was on my own. It's funny all the little things we take for granted bopping around on two legs - just gathering ingredients is a big deal and Dad was a huge help!
I made Oatmeal Currant muffins and they turned out great! I'd love to share the recipe with you :)

My kiddos have oatmeal almost every morning for breakfast and I realize it's time for something new. This recipe is quick, easy and perfect for breakfast with fresh fruit and even an egg if you'd like.
Also, they are awesome for a healthy snack!
Let's get started!

First, I whisked together all the wet ingredients (eggs, coconut oil, brown sugar, and milk)...

Then I combined all the dry ingredients (almond flour, oatmeal, baking powder, baking soda, and a dash of salt).

Then I combined the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients....

Mix together and add the currants...

Cook for 17-18 minutes and volia!

So good!!
