If you didn't know by now, desserts are my downfall. I'm one of those people that have the mentality of "there's always, ALWAYS, room for dessert." SO, I am always trying to find ways to make some sweet treats that will satisfy my cravings while still giving my body some actual nutrition that is not just crap.
Try these healthy muffins and enjoy!
CHOCOLATE ALMOND BUTTER
CASHEW OR PEANUT BUTTER
CHOCOLATE CASHEW OR PEANUT BUTTER
-Melt chocolate chips or white chocolate chips (or both!) in saucepan on stove
-Mix melted chocolate with puffed rice or puffed kamut in bowl until evenly covered
-Either, spoon into little muffin cups (my way) or place aluminum foil on a baking tray and smooth out mixture to form a block that can be cut into bars later (mom's way)
-Add toppings of your choice... I drizzled some salted caramel on the chocolate ones and coconut shavings on the white chocolate ones
-Place in fridge for 1 hr or freezer for 30 min
- 3 scoops of chocolate protein powder
-1/3 cup coconut flour
-2 tbsp cocoa powder
-1/4 cup almond butter (or any nut butter)
-2 tbsp honey
-3 tbsp water
If still crumbly, add a little more water.
Divide up batter (should make 8-10 brownies)
-melt 4 tbsp of white chocolate chips on stove
-spread on brownies
-add sprinkles or coconut flakes
Place brownies in fridge for 1 hour or until firm.
Using Pillsbury Banana quick Bread Mix:
-use 1 cup of unsweetened vanilla almond milk
-add in chocolate chips & crushed walnuts
-add 1- 2 scoops chocolate protein powder (I used Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard Whey)
-Bake at 370 degrees instead of 400 because it leaves the inside softer and more moist :)
