Choc Berry Muffins


Ladies, fellows, listen up.

We have some good news. Being women, we know how hectic it can be leading up to that time of the month, and thankfully we have come up with a cure in the form of food.

These Choc Berry Muffins are filled with ingredients that can assist a woman's body leading up to and during her period. Maca powder is an adaptogen which helps to stabalise hormones, and cacao powder has incredible levels of magnesium.

Add them into a bowl with a few other affordable ingredients, stick em in the oven and BAM – you’ve got yourself a weapon to defend yourself during the next psychotic hormonal moment. Feed these to your spouse, yourself, or a friend that is known to get a little crazy when it's around that time of the month. Not only that; these muffins are so versatile. You can make this recipe into a cake, or use it as a pancake mixture. The limits are endless!

We are two friends with very little money and huge appetites living in Byron Bay, Australia. We became friends a few years ago when we started working together for a local Byron brand. Our love for food and passion for eating brought us together, now we are practically joined at the hip! Elise (22) is coeliac and lactose intolerant and Sarah Mae (25) is a vegetarian who is allergic to nightshade vegetables (potato, tomato, capsicum, eggplant, goji berries). Our allergies have forced us to maintain a healthy lifestyle and because we both don't have a lot of money, we have had to figure out how to achieve this on a tight budget. Now that we've done the groundwork, we want to help, inspire and teach you how to do the same.
