Raspberry Fall Muffins

My favorite parts of fall are the changing of the leaves and baking. There is nothing like the warm smell of something sweet in the oven. When baking I like to keep things low carb, so be don’t have to make it a cheat day or feel guilty for indulging. Most muffins run around 30 carbs these are 13 carbs. Muffins are a quick way to bake up some family time in the kitchen. Make some ahead of time for school days. Or wake everyone up with the lofting smell on a Saturday morning. These mouthwatering muffins use frozen raspberries, giving you the feel of summer as it drifts away.
2 cups almond flour
1/3 cup coconut sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
1 cup frozen raspberries thawed on a paper towel 1/2 cup unsweetened original almond milk
1 tsp vanilla

German Potatoes

I have no idea why these are called German. I tasted a recipe years ago, and someone called them german potatoes.  I created the potatoes in college as a dinner staple.  This is a delicious take on potatoes, and my family loves this flavorful dish so much. You can even cook them up on your grill using a castiron skillet.
