Pork Tenderloin with Peach BBQ sauce

We recently went peach picking with the kids and picked two huge bags of peaches.  There was no way we were going to eat all of those peaches before they went bad if we just ate them as a snack out of the fridge. Therefore, I had to get a little creative in how to use them up.  Enter peach bbq sauce.  This BBQ sauce is very quick to make and does not use ketchup or added sugars.

I used this on a pork tenderloin but you could easily use this over any other type/cut of meat such as chicken or ribs.

Banana Date Muffins

These muffins are a true guilt-free, gluten free, tasty treat! They use chickpeas and almond flour in place of regular flour and use very ripe bananas, dates and a little bit of honey, instead of sugar.  These muffins are super moist.  However, don’t be alarmed if they do not rise the same way a traditional muffin rises.

Chocolate Banana Muffins

While I try to keep my family on a low sugar/clean diet, on occasion my kids will ask for a baked sweet treat for breakfast.  I’ve made various paleo muffins and they have been hit or miss (many misses due to the hints of coconut).  I decided to make these chocolate banana muffins with a couple substitutions that fulfill the need for sweet while reducing the use of refined sugar.  In place of regular sugar, I used very ripe bananas and raw coconut crystals, which have a low glycemic index.  The outcome was a hit with the whole family.  No one was able to taste a hint of coconut.
