A couple weeks ago I created a recipe on the fly one evening. It turned out to be one of my all time favorite recipes. 

In case you missed it, here's the recipe for my Matcha Mocha Muffins

So today I'm getting busy in the kitchen creating a luscious tempting treat that'll satisfy your sweet tooth without adding inches to your waist!  I always include Caprylic Acid from refined coconut oil in my baked goods now. It gives them a lot of extra moisture, somewhat similar to adding jello pudding to cake batter to give it a smoother texture, only much better!

Also, today's recipe contains Moringa, which has been studied for it's positive effects on inflammation, which is hypothesized to be a precursor to diseases such as depression and mental fog, and even fibromyalgia. 

"To date, over 1,300 studies, articles and reports have focused on moringa benefits and this plant’s healing abilities that are important in parts of the world that are especially susceptible to disease outbreak and nutritional deficiencies. Research shows that just about every part of the Moringa oleifera plant can be utilized in some way, whether it’s to make a potent antioxidant tea or produce an oily substance that lubricates and nourishes the skin," writes Dr. Josh Axe
