The easy Paleo, Low Carb, and Gluten Free Microwave Muffin with Cinnamon is perfect to start your morning quickly.  Packed with nutrition and topped with sweetness, you’re set!

Like that idea?  Then keep reading!


Early morning?  Rushed?  Just don’t like to cook much (at least not today)?  🙂  

You can make a quick and healthy microwave muffin that is Paleo, Low Carb, Keto, Dairy Free, and Gluten Free with this Paleo Cinnamon Microwave Muffin recipe.  It’s so quick, you even have time left to feel good about making your healthy muffin, fluff your hair up a little, and even get your kids and hubby (and you too even) out the door or off to work or school in due time!

This Wheat Free, Nut Free muffin recipe also makes for a great afternoon snack for your kids who go to a school that has restrictions on nuts inside the building.  

What’s more, the protein content of this healthy breakfast muffin recipe (or snack muffin recipe) provides a hunger satisfaction for hours.  

You can wrap it up if taking or sending it to school or work.

You can cut it in half and eat it as is or with a spread or topping. 

If you WANT a spread or topping…

You can top it with butter, apple butter, pumpkin butter (a Paleo pumpkin butter recipe included in the next post), or with some honey if you wish.  Seriously, as is, ie without any topping, is fine too.  Just keep any topping you use within your health and/or dietary ideals.

You can eat it by itself, with yogurt, fresh fruit, milk, protein shake, or juice.

You can also simply include it with a fuller lunch of salad or soup to satisfy that desire for a “bread”.  

I just ate one of these this morning, plain, no butter or spread, and I can envision eating one of these just like that with some taco soup, bean soup, or southwestern salad…  just about anything like that really. 

Heathy Eating Tip:

Did you know flaxseed meal is a good heart healthy food?  It also helps keep your hunger satisfied longer.  What a wonderful combination of benefits! 

Flaxseed meal is used in this recipe and many other gluten free, Paleo, and Low Carb microwave muffin recipes.  You can also sprinkle it on your cereal, with your oatmeal, or in your blender when you’re making a protein shake.  

I sprinkle flaxseed meal in plain, organic Greek yogurt along with some Chia seeds and a little Stevia and pure vanilla extract for my breakfast sometimes too.  Yum, and that keeps me feeling fresh-minded and filled all morning long! 

Below is the recipe for this cinnamon microwave muffin.

Additionally then, check the site for an upcoming recipe for Paleo Pumpkin butter which is all I kept thinking about as I ate my muffin plain this morning alongside my bulletproof coffee.  


Coconut oil is good for your heart as well and has tons of other health benefits too!  Fat isn’t just “fat” when you use coconut oil!

  1. 1 Lg. Egg (preferably organic)
  2. 2 Tbsp. Coconut Flour
  3. 1 Tbsp. Flaxseed Meal
  4. 1/4 tsp. Baking Powder (use a gluten free baking powder for pure gluten free)
  5. 1 Pinch Sea Salt (approximately 1/8 tsp or so)
  6. 2 Tbsp. Coconut Oil
  7. 2 Tbsp. Erythritol
  8. 1/2 tsp. Cinnamon
  1. Spray coffee mug with coconut oil baking spray.
  2. Break egg into cup and whisk with a fork until fluffy.
  3. Add remaining ingredients to the egg and whisk again.
  4. Microwave on high for 1:30 minutes.
  1. You can use 2 Tbsp. of Coconut Palm Sugar instead of the Erythritol if you wish. That makes it slightly higher in carbs but still works as a Paleo or Whole 30 recipe.
  2. The original recipe I used and adapted to make my muffins here mentioned you could add one tablespoon (at a time) water if your dough seems really stiff... which could mean you used a little too much coconut flour. If you add water, you may need to increase your baking time by 30 seconds or so. I did NOT add water, and my muffins cooked in 1 and 1/2 minutes and was as moist as any muffin you could make with any traditional recipe.
  3. The original recipe also mentioned you could save half of the Erythirtol or Coconut Sugar to mix with cinnamon and sprinkle on top before cooking. I just put all the sweetener and cinnamon right in the muffin and was very happy with the taste.

Enjoy A Family Thanksgiving Movie Today!

happy thanksgiving movie

First of all…  Happy Thanksgiving! 

happy thanksgiving movieI’m getting ready for my own Thanksgiving dinner (at my daughter and son-in-law’s home this year), so I’ve got to hurry here a bit.  Still, I wanted to pop in and wish you all well today. 

As a Thanksgiving gift and a tip on saving money, I’m passing this YouTube video on to you.

Did you know you can find FULL movies at YouTube?  

There you go.  Now you know.  Saving money can sometimes be as easy as learning to use the free or cheaper tools you have at your fingertips.  YouTube is most likely at most of your fingertips already.  USE IT!  

In fact, there are lots of holiday movies online, many for free.  

But hey, you really need to utilize YouTube much more thank I bet most of you have.  

Oh yea, and be sure to download the YouTube app on your Roku or other streaming media box if you want to watch vids online on your television.  You don’t HAVE to do that if watching movies on a computer works for you or if you have a computer connected to your TV in some other fashion.  

If you want to watch these on your big screen (TV at home) though, a streaming media device connected to your television is an easy way to go.  

I’ll tell you more about those things later… if you need more info on doing that. 

In the meantime….  

Watch A Family Thanksgiving Hallmark Movie here on YouTube.



If you watch the movie (at this link to follow or above), A Family Thanksgiving Movie from Hallmark, you’ll see some Hallmark Christmas movies on YouTube at the related video list at YouTube as well.  

What’s better than a Hallmark movie for Thanksgiving?  OK, a Hallmark movie for Christmas is.  But both are good!  



Have fun.

You’re welcome.

Happy Thanksgiving!

… And God bless you all.

Why This Woman is Voting for Donald J. Trump

John and Chris at Trump Rally

I shared this with friends the other day.  In the meantime, I decided to just share it with the world.  I’m a woman.  I’m a Christian woman, and I’m voting for Donald J. Trump for President of the United States of America.  Want to know why?  Here’s my story. 


I wrote the words below a little while ago on a friend’s Facebook post. However, as the time goes on, I am thinking I should share this, my “specific-moment-in-time” testimony, here as well.

I add here above this “testimony” though, that whoever wins this election, the God I know and trust will forever be in control. I will trust HIM.

My Election 2016 Choice

Here is what is driving me in this election choice…

James 2:14-26 New King James Version (NKJV)

Faith Without Works Is Dead
14 What does it profit, my brethren, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can faith save him? 15 If a brother or sister is naked and destitute of daily food, 16 and one of you says to them, “Depart in peace, be warmed and filled,” but you do not give them the things which are needed for the body, what does it profit? 17 Thus also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead.

18 But someone will say, “You have faith, and I have works.” Show me your faith without your[a] works, and I will show you my faith by my[b] works. 19 You believe that there is one God. You do well. Even the demons believe—and tremble! 20 But do you want to know, O foolish man, that faith without works is dead?[c] 21 Was not Abraham our father justified by works when he offered Isaac his son on the altar? 22 Do you see that faith was working together with his works, and by works faith was made perfect? 23 And the Scripture was fulfilled which says, “Abraham believed God, and it was accounted to him for righteousness.”[d] And he was called the friend of God. 24 You see then that a man is justified by works, and not by faith only.

25 Likewise, was not Rahab the harlot also justified by works when she received the messengers and sent them out another way?

26 For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.


James 2:18 NU-Text omits your.
James 2:18 NU-Text omits my.
James 2:20 NU-Text reads useless.
James 2:23 Genesis the 15:6
New King James Version (NKJV)

I KNOW one major candidate will not work towards the policies and practices that I cling to as a Believer, as a Christ follower.

I know the other has advisers and others close who are Christian, and that one, while imperfect as a person, is in the process of setting up an administration, policies and plans, which honor the Lord God Almighty’s Wisdom and Words which the Lord God Almighty has given us throughout the years.

How does that Scripture above pertain to that?

It is NOT in my Christian vs. Anti-Christian view. It is what solidifies my Christian CHOICES.

I urge anyone reading this to consider what happens if you make a third choice because another fits your view of the living, perfect Christian over the one who is imperfect but who has the God-inspired principles and plans.

I believe that choosing the more-proper “Christian” so you can say you can stand before the Lord with a clear conscious, that you chose the “most Christian” one, is choosing to exhibit faith but is also forgotting that our lives should also provide an amount of something working which makes that faith come ALIVE for Christ in this world.

You DO have the right to vote just your faith, and if the Holy Spirit really guides you as such to make a decision even when it does not provide the principles of God’s Words and Wisdom for our daily living and to help our loved ones and neighbors, then you have done all you could.

However, I urge you to at least ask yourself if making a faith choice knowing NO “win” is evident, NO works for the Kingdom will come about (and in fact could possibly bring the works of Christ’s opposite to our people, non Christian and Christian alike for years to come), is that showing faith God deserves? Perhaps it shows faith, but does it show faith while forgetting about the works He needs from our lives and our decisions which then work for the good in this world He has given us to work in?

Yes dear Christian friends, vote your faith. Please however, also consider if your vote will or will not be your best choice (of what choices you have and to the best of your ability) to see the fruits of your choice be sweet in the Lord’s eyes or an abomination to His very Spirit.

I will vote as a Christian, my faith.

I also want the works of my hands to carry on what I know God honors and tells us to live for. For me, that means the one who can win and who also has been at least blessed with a Godly goal and principles in mind and who has Christian advisers to pray over him and keep him ever going in the right direction for us all.

Thank you for letting me share what is driving me.

Cowboy Pie Dessert Recipe

Cowboy Pie Dessert Recipe

A beautiful site to behold, the cowboy pie is a mixture of a good old fashioned pie recipe with chocolate chunks, candy, apples and peanuts. In Britain, a cowboy pie may have beef.  Even in the history of cowboy cooking in Texas, a recipe for cowboy pie might have baked beans and sausage.

I told you!  Like I said above, this pie is like none other!  

Of note too, there is another recipe for Cowboy Pie which is just as rich (if not more) than this one but slightly different.  

Elizabeth Karmel of Hill Country Chicken in New York City has created a make-your-own Cowboy Pie dessert recipe where you can add just about any sweet ingredient you might like to add.  From white chocolate chips to Rice Krispies, toffee, carmels, cherries, raisins, hazelnuts, or just about anything else sweet you might be “hankering”, (I vote for candy corn on Thanksgiving)…. inside an Oreo Cookie pie crust, graham cracker pie crust, or something else expected or extraordinary, this is one unique pie that may or may not be for everyone but will certainly appeal to the biggest sweet ‘tooths’ in your life.  


You can watch Elizabeth’s Cowboy Pie recipe premier on Good Morning America here:

If the pie in the video above interests you, here is Elizabeth Karmel’s Cowboy Pie recipe which she introduced (above) on Good Morning America’s Thanksgiving Pie-Palooza in 2012.

It’s like a candy pie recipe with candy….  more candy….. and stuff…..  


And you thought chocolate chip pie was out of this world. 

Your friends and family will never know what hit them.  



Quilted China Storage Cases Offer China Protection With Style

Quilted China Keepers

Are you looking to buy quilted china storage protectors for dinnerware sets and serving accessories?  These quilted china keepers should be on your radar then! 

For nice dinnerware sets that need protection during storage times, these quilted china keepers by Richards Homewares of Oregon may just be what you’re looking for.  While they are not intended for use alone if transporting during a move or tightly packed in a long-term storage facility (without additional bubble wrap and/or a boxed exterior), quilted china protectors are a practical way to protect dinnerware sets from the chipping, cracking, and dust collection that can happen when fine china and cups are not in use.  

The Richards Homewares quilted china storage set of 6 pieces is a starter set that actually accommodates a good amount of china and comes with cushioned dividers to keep glassware from rubbing, a main cause of chipping and cracking and can be loaded from the top for ease of control.  

It comes in four colors as seen below including red, exceptionally colorful for your Christmas and Holiday dinnerware sets….  



Or Natural…

You also have a simple white option with these white quilted china storage cases



Or a more richly-colored choice with these beautiful crimson colored pieces.  


The cost of this quilted dinnerware storage set is quite reasonable and is rated well by Amazon purchasers for its effectiveness for its cost.  


For a slightly higher but still modest cost, this Homewear 8-Piece Hudson Damask China Storage Container Set in tan offers a beautiful way to store dinnerware sets and pieces.  



 While some Hudson Damask China Storage Container reviews on Amazon felt the interior dividers could stand to be a little sturdier overall with thicker dividers than accompany the quilted exteriors, the quality of the quilting itself was deemed high by Amazon purchasers, adding to the set’s overall sturdiness for its reasonable cost.  


For an even higher quality and larger set which includes 2 china accessory protectors, this Homeware 8-piece Hudson Damask China Storage Container Set comes with soft quilted microfiber and accommodates a dinnerware set for 8 plus serving plates.



Hudson Damask also has a very nice long stemware quilted storage container.  



As you can see, the Goblet Stemware Storage for 12 Glasses matches quite nicely with the above kit! 

For those with exquisitely fine china needs who are looking for the best quilted china keepers to buy, this Marathon Housewares KW030008 Deluxe Quilted Damask China Storage Case Set of 6 in Ivory may be more to your liking.  The quality and sizes of the containers are promising.  Of course, the cost is higher though too.  


Even the finest of china can have a place of protection with the Marathon Housewares Deluxe Quilted Storage Set above.

The above products links to quilted storage protectors for china are Amazon affiliate links.  While they are just a sampling of what you can purchase on Amazon, should you purchase anything during your visit to Amazon from any one of the above links, or discover and purchase another product during that time, it will not cost you anything extra but will help maintain this site and bless the owner / writer / publisher of The New American Home with Chris Stevens.  (That’s me.)  🙂
