Baking, Macrobiotics

Macrobiotic Peanuts Butter Muffin

I love macrobiotic muffin. It’s REALLY easy to make and taste so good and guilty free! I shouldn’t do this but I can eat whole muffin after dinner for tea. Yum! I used to learn and cook/bake macrobiotic food all the time just because I was curious how my body and feeling changes by diet. I really enjoyed this period and I felt so good about myself. However, 6 months later, my craving for soft cream ice-cream came back. Since I was away from regular food for 6 months, I thought “why not. It’s your treat and have a nice soft cream ice-cream!”. Then “AAAGGGGHHHHAAA” About 5 min later, many red spots appeared on my chest and neck, then my heart started beating really fast. I was scared by these reaction and also the possibility of not being able to eat soft cream ice-cream. Maybe I should have chose the pure macrobiotic life at this point but I chose my life with ice-cream…

Since this red spot attack, my diet had been half macrobiotic and half regular food. Last couple of years, more Natural food stores have opened in Singapore and it’s getting easier and more reasonable to get organic stuff. The macrobiotic diet here is bit different from the time I was in Tokyo because of the climate but I’d love to keep exploring healthier option even there are SO MANY great food and temptation in Singapore! :-)

Anyway, here is the muffin recipe for you to try. Hope you enjoy this guilt free happy muffin!
