Enjoy these muffin tops!

Happy New Year, guys! I hope you had a great end to 2018 and that 2019 is off to a killer start for you!

I don’t know about everyone else, but I am happy to be at this point in my calendar. The last month of the year always have me hiding in my turtle shell and reverting to a someone introverted human being. Luckily, that only lasts the time frame between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day. I’ve been working on lots of behind the scenes projects, mostly my book which will publish sooner than later. I can’t wait to share with you guys! That has kept me busy while I was under the radar.

Many of you have shared how much you love when I share recipes, so I am going to do my best to share even more with you this year, starting with this healthy and delicious muffin recipe! It is one I love making when I am entertaining guests or family because they are so good and no one knows they are healthy (shhhh….don’t tell them).

Look at that beautiful muffin top. 

Katie’s Healthy Banana Muffins

Ingredients:
-1 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
-1 tsp baking soda
-1/4 tsp salt
-3 bananas (the riper the better)
-1 tbl vanilla
-1 tbl coconut oil (melted)
-1 egg
-1/2 cup plain greek yogurt
-1 tbl almond or soy milk
-1/4 cup honey (pure)
-1/2 cup chocolate chips (Enjoy Life is the brand I use)

Whisk the flour, baking soda, and salt together. Set aside. Blend all other ingredients together (you can even mix them all in a blender to make it easy). Blend the wet and dry ingredients together, then fold in the chocolate chips. Bake for 20-25 minutes at 350 degrees!

If you are one of my clients following one of my meal plans, one muffin equates to 1 yellow, 1/4 purple, and 1 tsp. Sometimes I use blueberries in place of the chocolate chips and that changes the purple count to 1.

Enjoy!

Chocolate lovers only, please!

I have a big problem, and they come in the form of Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups.

I JUST FREAKIN LOVE THEM (Especially the Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup eggs…there’s just something amazing about them).

Ok, let’s be honest….I like all chocolate, but since these are my favorite, I am always trying to find a way to work them into my diet. Usually I stick with my trusty Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Shakeology recipe, but sometimes I just. want. the. chocolate.

This weekend I decided I would not eat like a pig for the Superbowl, and instead made a fabulous Black Bean and Spinach Enchilada recipe and…. Drumroll…..Shakeology Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. They are super easy and super delicious….and being that the entire batch was eaten by Kyle, I can attest that others love them, too.

Here is how you make my PB Heaven Cups….because they are so heavenly.

Ingredients You Need:

-5 Tablespoons Chocolate Shakeology (Don’t have any….you can order some here!)

-2 Tablespoons Unrefined Virgin Coconut Oil

-3 Tablespoons Natural Peanut Butter or PB2 Mixed with Water

-Muffin Pan and some liners if you so desire

I use Chocolate Vegan instead of regular.....use what you love!

Step 1: Line your muffin pan with your liners (if you are using them).

Step 2: Melt the coconut oil in the microwave until a smooth liquid.

Step 3: Mix the coconut oil with the Shakeology in the bowl. If you don’t like the taste of coconut oil, you can use water in its place (same amount, your call).

Mix until smooth.

Step 4: Add barely enough of the chocolate mixture to cover the bottom of the liner. Put in the freezer for about 2 minutes, then remove.

All you need is a tiny little amount.

Step 5: Add your peanut butter. I used natural because I didn’t have PB2 on hand (that’s the powdered stuff), but I also mixed the peanut butter with a little bit of water to make it creamier. You don’t have to do this, but I liked how it worked.

I found mixing with a little water helped me smooth it out better.

Step 6: Top with remaining chocolate mixture.

Step 7: Place into freezer for about 25 minutes and then get your eat on!

You’re welcome.

Oh hello, lovers.
