My aim with this blog is self- empowerment and motivation. Hopefully I will be able to inspire others in a strong healthy MIND and BODY at any age...Hoping to connect with or find more 40+ fitness ladies to inspire me but for now I'm equally inspired by all of you no matter what age! <3 I should mention I was a practicing nutritional therapist for many years so hit me up if you need any advice. Remember abs are made in the kitchen ;)
FYI: I post all the comments and questions sent to me unless I'm asked not to or if they are obviously private.

Been wanting to create healthy High Protein Fat Burning recipes for treats for a while now as I LOVE sweets/baked goods!This is my first confirmed yummy recipe. The key with this though is the fat burning properties of unrefined virgin coconut oil and the high proteins in the Greek yogurt , plain unflavored whey isolate and sprouted grain flours! The stats per muffin below are based on these particular ingredients. Coconut/Palm sugar is also lower glycemic than regular sugar. I can’t do Stevia- it takes sickly to me! :)The average muffin you buy is twice the calories, sugar and fat and one of these will definitely satisfy!
Share and enjoy!
High Protein Fat Burning Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins
1/2 cup organic coconut palm sugar
1/3 cup unrefined organic virgin coconut oil (ideally room temp not melted-more like butter)
2 cups mashed ripe bananas (4 medium)
1/2 cup high protein Greek yogurt
1 cup ‘sprouted’ organic whole spelt flour (can find at Whole Foods etc..)
½ cup pure organic oat flour
60 grams ‘unflavoured’ protein powder (works out to approx 200 cc)
1 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 teaspoon Himalayan sea salt
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/3 cup chocolate chips ( can substitute nuts if preferred)
Heat oven to 350 degrees..
Mix sugar and coconut oil until blended. Add in the eggs, one at a time, blending well after each one(ideally use a mixer, mix will be odd consistency but its fine don’t worry about it). Add the mashed bananas and yogurt; then after that is blended, add in the rest of the ingredients (except chocolate chips) until everything is moistened. Stir in chips, then pour into the individual muffin pan (12)
Bake until toothpick or a knife inserted comes out clean, about 20 min max- don’t over bake so they will stay nice and moist! Let them cool for about five minutes. Makes 12.(can also bake as cake in 8x8 baking dish but for 45-50 min)
