Fit Your Life offers fitness classes for women at very special times in their lives. We want to assist you in finding or reconnecting with your fitness journey by discovering something that inspires you! Pregnancy and motherhood are often times in our lives where exercise is forgotten or falls off the priority list. Your health is vital in you being the best mom, wife, partner, friend, and woman you can be!
There is nothing better than having a healthy and delicious breakfast ready to go when you wake up on a busy morning! Baking a nutritious batch of muffins to have on hand is a great way to ensure that you start your day off right, even if you are running out the door!
This recipe can be modified to for any "fixings" you like (nuts, coconut, even dark chocolate!!) and can be stored in an airtight container in the freezer to keep them fresh!
Morning Magic Muffins
makes 24 muffins
nearly done baking!
2 cups whole wheat flour (oat flour can be substituted)
1 cup coconut sugar
2 tsp baking soda
2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 cup unsweetened apple sauce*
3/4 cup coconut oil (melted)
2 cup grated carrot
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup dried cranberries**
1/2 cup unsweetened coconut flakes** 1/2 cup slivered almonds**
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line muffin tin with paper liners or use non-stick spray. Mix dry ingredients in a large bowl. In a smaller bowl, blend remaining ingredients. Stir together until just blended. Spoon into muffins tins (3/4 full) and bake for 20 minutes.
*I have substitured the apple sauce with pumpkin puree or crushed pineapple. Both variations have turned out great!
**Add in 1.5 cups of whatever nuts, seeds, dried fruit, or dark chocolate you have. Creating your own variation is part of the fun!
