Fitness Crazed Foodie
Lover of all things food and fitness related
After a month hiatus, I'm back! Work has been crazy and I've barely found time to create new recipes to blog about. I've been sticking to recipes I've been making for years in order to save time and effort. Regardless of how busy I am, meal prepping has continued to stay in my routine and I love the feeling of getting it all done on a Monday. "I don't have enough time to cook" is just not an excuse in my vocabulary, and it shouldn't for you either! It's all about finding recipes that are simple and tasty. You might have to go through some trial-and-error to get the cooking and process perfected, but you will SAVE TIME in the long run. I promise.
Ok, rant over.
Now onto these bad boys.
Each week, I prep the ingredients for my breakfast smoothies and make every lunch and dinner for 4-5 days. I wish I could say that's all I make, but in reality, I always prepare something sweet. That dang sweet tooth.... BUT! The sweets I choose to eat do not "ruin" my healthy habits during the week. I make simple swaps of ingredients that change the nutrition content without compromising the flavor. These modified muffins are a little bit sweet, but filled with healthy fats and protein to make a well macro-balanced treat.
1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
1/4 cup no-sugar or real maple syrup
1/4 cup peanut butter
1 tbsp melted coconut butter
1 cup ground oat flour
1 cup almond flour
2 tbsp ground flax seed
1 tsp baking soda
4 scoops collagen peptides
2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup chocolate chips (or raisins)
In a large bowl, whisks eggs, milk and maple syrup together. Melt the peanut butter and let it cool for 5 minutes before whisking it in. Add the rest of the ingredients and stir until well combined.
Scoop into 10-12 muffin tins. Bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes.
Additional toppings for one muffin:
1 tbsp peanut butter (you can never have too much...!)
1 tbsp chocolate chips melted with 1/2 tbsp coconut butter (pictured above)
1 tbsp honey
Eat plain and dip it in a big ole glass of milk!
