Power Workout Muffins

If you need that little nutritional boost before and after a workout, this may become a staple. The ingredients are protein packed and what you need to muscle up. I originally saw this recipe by Peggy K on Z living but it has been adapted. I made a batch on Sunday and froze a few to be used during the week for a pre workout energy boost.

2-IMG_3174I have to say that there are many ingredients in this recipe but each add their own nutritional value so feel free to substitute keeping in mind that this is a muscle healthy muffin.

Here is the recipe

Dry ingredients ( combine and sift)

1 cup brown rice flour,

3 tablespoon maca powder

1/2 cup spelt flour

1 cup oatmeal

1 tsp baking powder

1 tsp baking soda

1/2 cup coconut palm sugar

pinch of salt

Wet ingredients ( combine)

1 cup almond milk

1 ripe mashed banana

2 tablespoon coconut oil

1/2 cup almond butter

1 tbsp chia seeds soaked in 5 tbsp of water

1 tsp vanilla extract

Extras

1/2 cup dry red cherries

1/2 cup almonds or walnuts

1/2 cup coconut flakes

Combine the wet ingredient with the dry and stir to mix. Add the extras. The batter should look like a thick pancake batter so if it is too thick you can add additional almond milk.

Bake in a muffin pan coated with coconut oil at 350 for 25 to 30 mins.
