Wild Eats: Green Muffin Recipe

These green muffins may look a little scary, but trust me - they taste AMAZING!! They are healthy, easy to make, and a great way to sneak in some greens. ;)

Here's What You Need:

  • 3/4 cup of almond flour
  • 3/4 cup of protein powder (I like Perfect Fit Protein)
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • sprinkle of chia seeds
  • 1/2 cup of kale
  • 1 tbs of melted coconut oil
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbs maple syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup of almond milk

Here's What You Do:

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Mix all dry ingredients together in a bowl. Combine all wet ingredients plus the kale in a blender, and blend until well blended. Pour wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix to combine. Spray a muffin tin with cooking oil spray, and then pour the batter in. Bake for 20 mins, or until a toothpick comes out clean when inserted.

Enjoy!

Wild Eats: Chocolate Protein Donuts

IMG_4291.JPG

I have a thing for donuts. Krispy Kreme are my all time favorite, and I could probably eat them every single day, if it wouldn’t kill me. SO, when I learned that you can make HEALTHY donuts that still taste amazing, I was ALL about it. These make a really tasty, quick breakfast, or a not-so-dirty dessert. Best part - my husband approves of these scrumptious treats!

Here’s what you’ll need: 

-1 cup chocolate protein powder (I use Perfect Fit

-2 tbs cacao powder

-1 tsp baking powder

-A pinch of sugar (this isn't necessary - feel free to leave this out)

-A dash of cinnamon

-1 tsp vanilla extract

-1/3 cup egg whites

-1 cup unsweetened Almond and Coconut milk blend

-3 tbs melted coconut oil (important to stir this in last! I learned the hard way 😂) 

-Cacao Nibs (for the icing)

Here’s What You Do:

Mix all ingredients together in a bowl, stirring in the melted coconut oil LAST. Then spoon into a donut pan. Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for about 35 minutes. Let them cool and then drizzle with a blend of melted cacao nibs and melted coconut oil. Enjoy!

1/4 cup coconut flour

1 and 3/4 cup whole wheat flour

3 mashed up, ripe bananas

1/3 cup strawberry Greek yogurt

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix coconut flour, whole wheat flour, and baking soda. Combine sugar and butter in a separate bowl and mix well.

Pour batter into an 8 1/2 x 4 1/2 inch loaf pan that has been greased or sprayed with cooking spray. Bake at 350 degrees for about an hour, or until a knife inserted into the loaf comes out clean.
