Greek yogurt is being used in everything these days, from ice cream to face masks to pancakes. Now I am taking it a step further and showing you a delicious recipe for Greek yogurt banana muffins! There is nothing better than a warm muffin and a cup of cold milk in the morning. These muffins are made without flour or oil, and the oats in them give them their shape. They have a dash of chocolate in them to suppress your sweet tooth, and they are super duper moist! I cannot wait to whip up a batch myself.

 

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 2 ripe bananas
  • 2 eggsBanana-Oat-Greek-Yogurt-Muffins4
  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • 1½ tsp. baking powder
  • ½ tsp. baking soda
  • ½ cup chocolate chips

Preheat your oven to 400F and spray a muffin tin with nonstick spray or coat it with coconut oil. In a blender, add all of your ingredients but the chocolate chips and blend them on high until the batter is smooth. Stir in the chocolate by hand and then pour the batter into the muffin pan, filling each hole until it is about 75% full. Sprinkle your chocolate chips over the muffins and then bake for 15-20 minutes. Allow them to cool for about 10 minutes before you remove them from the pan.

 

These muffins are crazy good and good for you! They are healthy enough for breakfast and tasty enough to get your day started off right.

Waking up for school can be a struggle, but making yourself a decently healthy breakfast before school is an even bigger struggle!  It’s easy to just grab a granola bar, pour yourself a sugary bowl of cereal, or worse, skip breakfast all together.  I’ve got the perfect (and healthy) muffin recipe you can whip up on the weekend and eat throughout the week! Chelsea Crockett- healthy chocolate muffins

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 2 very ripe bananas
  • ¼ cup of maple syrup
  • 1 cup of creamy peanut butter
  • 1/3 cup of cocoa powder

Start by preheating the oven to 350 degrees.  In a food processor or large mixing bowl, combine all of the ingredients.  Once mixed, the batter will be VERY sticky.  Make sure to grease the pan before pouring the mixture into the molds.  Try using a wet spoon to get the batter out.  Place the muffins in the oven for 15 minutes and wait until they are completely cool before chowing down!  They should last up to a week if you place them in the fridge!  Hope you enjoy!

Love,

Chelsea

Triple Chocolate Chunk Muffins.  Need I say more? 95 calories and more protein than fat? How perfect can muffins get? Stay tuned for the oh-so-yummy recipe!

                     

Ingredients:

1 3/4 cup

Oats

3

Egg whites

3/4 cup

Unsweetened cocoa

1/2 cup

Unsweetened applesauce

1 tsp

Vanilla extract

1/2 cup

Plain greek yogurt (or regular plain low fat yogurt)

1/2 tsp

Cream of tartar (or 2 tsp. vinegar)

1 1/2 tsp

Baking powder

1 1/2 tsp

Baking soda

1/4 tsp

Salt

1 cup

Hot water

1/2 cup

Baking stevia OR 1 cup sweetener of choice that measures like sugar1

1/2 cup

Semi-sweet chocolate chips

Tip

Foil cupcake liners, remove the inner paper lining (because paper liners tend to stick to muffins!)

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a 12-cup muffin pan with foil cupcake liners, or spray muffin tin with non-stick cooking spray. Set aside.

2. In a blender, mix all of the ingredients together, except for the chocolate chips. Blend until oats are ground and mixture is smooth.

3. Place mixture in a bowl and gently stir in 1/2 of the chocolate chips (set the rest aside). Scoop mixture into prepared muffin pans.

4. Place muffins tins in the oven for 10 minutes.  After 10 minutes, remove muffins from the oven (but don’t shut oven off), and distribute the other half of the chocolate chips on top of each muffin.

5.Place the muffins back into the oven and bake for an additional 2-5 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean.

Cool muffins before removing from pan. ENJOY! 

XOXO, Chels
