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 😀  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!

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)

1 medium apple, chopped

1 serving MaxPro Elite Pumpkin Spice protein

P.S. I was supposed to remember to include measurements other than grams for those of you who don’t use grams or don’t weigh (it is the most accurate way but not everyone tracks macros or has a food scale).  I forgot–I’m sorry–next time!

 

Thinking Out Loud (#ToL)

Extra.jpgWell happy fall ya’ll. I guess it’s about time although this does not make me happy AT ALL. I finally had to use some heat. I like it hot and would be just as happy to move farther South. I know I am in the minority.

I do, however, love all the fall stuff. As you already know, pumpkin, but now I’m ready for apple! I have tried (unsuccessfully) to make some yummy, but healthy, pumpkin stuff and so far I’m the only one eating it LOL. I guess I’m a little rusty…or I need to soften my “healthy” standards a tad. Thing is I’m reverse dieting. Do you know that is? Torture. That’s what it is! After 13 weeks of dieting and then deciding that the stars were DEFINITELY not aligning, and I made the decision not to compete this year.  I have now entered the reverse diet phase. Thing is I tend to blow it and I’m trying hard not to this time. I’m doing ok. But honestly, I always do ok in the beginning…since I’m saying out loud to all of you, I’M GOING TO DO IT RIGHT THIS YEAR! Who’s with me? I need someone to help me fight off that holiday cookie monster!

I’m currently struggling with whether or not to renew my personal trainer license. Honestly, I haven’t used it in years. I keep thinking I will. It’s not cheap and I picked the most boring continuing education EVER. UGG
This is hindering my ability to start a new book…and it’s book reading time of year! I just know if I do I’ll never get back to my studies.

I can’t tell you how happy I was to see Extra Mint Chocolate Chip gum! I bought them all! I used to have every flavor they came out with and then they just stopped…this is my absolute favorite!!! *happy dance*

So I heard Arby’s is coming out with a venison sandwich. Don’t ask me why I know these things. But damn I love venison! Think it will be worth it?

Hoping to make it to the Fayetteville Dogwood Festival this weekend.  Weather is supposed to be beeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeautiful!  And there’s food ha!

Ok gotta run so now I want to hear your Thursday thoughts and hope over and give Amanda a visit at Running with Spoons and a big thank you for the link up!
