Pumpkin Apple Muffins

mufI guess you could call these Apple Pumpkin muffins. I can’t decide if they are more apple…or pumpkin. Either way, they are pretty tasty and full of good for you stuff! They even got rave reviews over at my local MaxMuscle!

I added a little MaxPro Elite Pumpkin Spice protein.¬† Not too much as I was worried they would be dry and no body likes a dry muffin—MOIST is what we want ūüėĬ† But I did want to give them a bit of a protein boost.

Let me know if you try them (or any variation–you could leave the protein out if you want) and be sure to #consistentfitnesslife on Instagram<<that’s me come give me a follow!

Makes 12

40g¬†Oat Flour (I used Bob’s Red Mill)

24g coconut flour (I use Let’s Do Organic)

110g Truvia baking blend (Truvia)

21g Organic chia seeds (Chia seeds)

6 tbsp. Muscle Egg Pumpkin Spice liquid egg whites (you could use regular)

212g pure pumpkin (I use good ole Libby’s–not pie filling)

1/2 cup unsweetened cashew milk (any milk would work)

Happy Monday!

blue.pngI hope you all had a great weekend. Mine was quiet–just the way I like it. Finished my book, let my just last week¬†legal to drive¬†teenager drive me around–only drove through one red light (ok yellow–flaming yellow) and drove over¬†one curb ha!¬†I also did a whole lot of experimenting in the kitchen!

My favorite bakery in town closed and so I decided to attempt to recreate one of my favorites from there. They were called Harvest bars so that is what I shall call these. Blueberry harvest bars. They did not really make a “bar”.¬† More of a baked oatmeal to eat with a spoon? I loved making my own blueberry jam but as a whole, these are not sweet so if you are into “not too sweet”, give them a try!

For the blueberry jam:
1.5 cups (roughly) blueberries–I used fresh
2 tbsp. chia seeds
2 tbsp. VitaFiber – you can also use maple syrup here
Put the blueberries and syrup in a sauce pan on medium. Heat about 5-10 minutes. Add chia seeds and stir 5-10 more minutes. Set aside to cool.

For the oatmeal part:
1/3 cup oat flour
1/2 cup oats
2 medium bananas
1/4 cup VitaFiber
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp vanilla
Mix it all up. I used an 8×8 pan and parchment paper Pour half the oatmeal mix on the bottom, blueberry in the middle, the rest of the oatmeal on top. Bake at 350 for 30 min.
I cut mine into 6 bars.
