Ingredients Highlights

Almond flour is a gluten-free flour made by grinding almonds after the skin has been removed. It’s softer and finer than almond meal which is made by grinding almonds with the skin left on. 

Blueberries (especially wild) are among the foods highest in antioxidant power. Eating blueberries has been associated with a number of health benefits, including protecting and preserving lung function. 

Egg yolks are rich in nutrients including iron and vitamins A, D, E, and K, but it’s the white that provides the most protein. An average-size egg contains around 6-7 grams of protein with around 4 grams coming from the egg white.  

Ghee is a type of clarified butter that has had the milk solids removed. It is rich in fat-soluble vitamins A, D, E, and K. 

Lemon is high in vitamin C, which is required for countless bodily functions including skin, immune system, and cardiovascular health.

Maple syrup contains a number of minerals including manganese, zinc, calcium, and potassium. It also contains amino acids, antioxidants, and even some anti-inflammatory compounds. 

Strawberries contain ellagic acid and a large number of polyphenols that help to rid the body of carcinogenic substances and inhibit the growth of abnormal cells.

Comments

  1. I made these and was disappointed due to lack of flavor. Needs more agave for sweetness. The blueberries dissolved the almond flour structure. I sprinkled powdered sugar over the top. Taste was much improved.
