Recently, I decided I wanted to make breakfast and lunch easier.  I’m busy, and I don’t feel like cooking a fresh meal everyday.  Who has time for that?  Yet, we have to eat.

My solution to that was to make items I could freeze and have on hand quickly and easily.  But I did not want everything to be grains!  Yes, we eat grains, even wheat (gasp! a crazy admission, to some, in the real food world), but I like to mix it up.

I came up with the ideas for these muffins and, well…they were a hit!  They’re crazy healthy, honestly, but pretty darn yummy.  Try them yourself — I think you’ll like them, and your family won’t even realize they’re eating squash, eggs, and beans!  (Seriously.)  df

If you have allergy concerns, they’re free of nuts, dairy, grains, and soy (plus of course seafood, which wouldn’t be in muffins anyway).  Most people can eat them!  And they are GAPS-friendly if you choose the honey.  Healthy chocolate muffins!!

  1. So could one grind raw navy beans into powder? I’ve never heard of navy bean flour.


  2. What can you sub for the navy bean flour?


  3. These look great and I love the idea of make ahead breakfasts. Do you think they would be hard to digest with the unsoaked beans? I wonder if there is a way to make something similar but easier to digest. I do love that they have protein and veggies!


  4. These are SO good! I made them with Millet Flour and some other gluten free flour mixes I had around to equal the 1-1/4 cups total. A big hit with my 2 year old 🙂


  5. Can I use just coconut flour? Or almond flour instead of navy bean?
