As a nutritionist one of the questions I get is on the topic of snacks. While I prefer my lovely clients to eat fresh fruits, vegetables and whole foods for their meals… there is no denying that sometimes you need to mix things up during snack time! I recently sat down to recreate a few classic recipes with a healthy twist.
We deserve to have our muffins and wear a bikini too! I am here to serve you with a protein fueled treat that tastes like your favorite breakfast pastry without all the unhealthy ingredients!
In the pursuit of staying on track with health goals sometimes a girl needs a break from the mid-day fruit and almonds. Snack time can be fun, flirty and low-calorie too!
Grab a few mini muffins for a mid-day treat, post workout or when you’re hankering for a sweet treat and enjoy!
P.S. You are all beautiful!

STEP 4: Combine all of the wet ingredients, including bananas, in the blender and blend until smooth.
STEP 5: Add wet ingredients to the dry ingredients (blueberries) and mix to combine.
