- After cutting/dicing/shredding all ingredients, heat oven to 350 F and place 12 muffin papers (I used foil ones) in a muffin tin.
- Combine all dry ingredients in large mixing bowl and set aside.
- On medium heat cook diced chicken in a small amount of coconut oil for 3-5 minutes, cooking about half way. Remove and set aside.
- In same pan, saute vegetables (carrots, potatoes, bell pepper, and onion). Add more coconut oil if needed (or butter) and cook for about 5-8 minutes, stirring frequently. Set aside.
- To dry ingredients add milk, eggs, butter, coconut oil, and cheese. Mix until all flour is dissolved.
- Add 3/4 each of chicken and vegetables. The rest will be used to top batter. Mix until well combined.
- Divide evenly in muffin compartments. Top off batter with the rest of the ingredients, shred more cheese over muffin tops.
- Bake for 18-30 minutes, until tooth pick comes out clean and top and brown.

1 large spaghetti squash
3 tablespoons water
Preheat oven to 375 F. Cover a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
Cut the sqush in half lengthwise. Scoop out the seeds and pulp with a large spoon.
Place squash cut side down on the baking sheet. Sprinkle water onto the paper around the squash. Roast until the squash is tender, but not mushy, 30-40 minutes. Place baking sheet on cooling rack, and, using a hot mitt, turn the squash cut side up to cool.
When it’s cool enough to handle, scrape the inside with a fork to shred the squash into strands.
Alternatively, you can cook the spaghetti squash in the microwave by placing it cut side up in a microwaze-safe dish along with 1/4 cup water. Cover with plastic wrap and cook on high for 10-15 minutes, depending on the size of the spaghetti squash.
Toss the spaghetti squash with a variety of yummy ingredients, such as butter, coconut oil, spaghetti sauce, spices, ground meat. The varieties are endless!
1 cup buckwheat flour
2 Tbs coconut sugar or stevia
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1 egg, whisked
1 cup buttermik*
2 Tbs melted coconut oil
1/4 cup Enjoy Life chocolate chips or fresh blueberries (optional)
Mix dry ingredients together. Add egg, buttermilk, and melted coconut oil to dry mix, stirring until well mixed. Fold in chocolate chips or blueberries, if using. Heat a skillet on medium and add a tablespoon of grassfed butter or coconut oil. Once the pan is heated, place a small amount of the batter in the pan, allowing the pancakes to cook until air bubbles begin to form. Flip pancake and cook through. Top with grassfed butter, maple syrup, and/or bananas. Enjoy!
*I make buttermilk by adding a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar to coconut or almond milk and allowing it to sit for two minutes or so. You can also use regular buttermilk if you consume dairy.
