Healthy Strawberry Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

 

It’s safe to say that chocolate goes with just about anything. Last week I made a Chocolate Strawberry Banana Smoothie and it was so delicious I knew I had to use those flavor combinations again.

 


 

So I quickly whipped up a batch of Strawberry Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins for only 99 calories each! Don’t even ask me how many muffins I ate because I will shamelessly tell you that I ate 5 muffins in one sitting!

Healthy Double Chocolate Oat Muffins

Happy first day of 2017. My New Year’s Eve was uneventful. Daniel and I stayed in, ordered pizza and watched Netflix. We fell asleep by 9pm but were woken up by the fireworks that started at 10:30 and our poor puppies were terrified of the crackling noise. So I rang in the new year cuddling my dog while she cried in my lap. I had no idea she was scared of fire works and it makes me so sad to think of all the years I’ve left her alone on New Year’s Eve.

 

Sorry, that just took a sad turn and that’s not how I want to start 2017. No, No, No, I want to start 2017 off with chocolate and lots of it! This morning I made Healthy Double Chocolate Oat Muffins for breakfast. Yes, for breakfast. 🙂

Healthy Blueberry Muffin Breakfast Bites

I love all fruit but I especially love summer-time fruits like apricots, cherries, strawberries, kiwi…I could go on forever but I don’t want to bore you with my fruit obsession. I will say that I have some good news about these blueberry muffin breakfast bites, I mean besides the obvious fact that they taste like dessert for breakfast, you can make these blueberry muffin bites any time of the year by using dried wild blueberries. WIN!

 

Blueberry-Muffin-Breakfast-Bites


 

I grew up eating dried fruit but for whatever reason, I have never had a dried blueberry before and like a dodo, I didn’t realize they even existed until I was in the grocery store the other day. I was so excited I bought a few bags and for the last few days I’ve been day dreaming about all the blueberry treats I plan to make with them.

 

Like all dried fruit, these dried berries have key differences to their fresh counterpart. Significantly, the calories and sugar are quite a bit more when the blueberry is dried. A cup of fresh blueberries contains about 84 calories and 15 grams of sugar but one cup of dried blueberries has over 500 calories and 100 grams of sugar. Portion size is key when it comes to the dried berry. Although they may be tiny, they pack a nutritional punch that often qualifies them to be a super-fruit and for good reason! They are packed with antioxidants and loads of fiber—especially when dried! And in my opinion, when baking with dried blueberries, it gives you a more intense blueberry flavor. Perhaps, it’s from all the extra sugar packed into those shriveled up blueberries but none the less, they are delicious and fiber-licious and that’s a win in my book!

Healthy Strawberry Protein Muffins

As much as I can’t wait for pumpkin lattes, leaves flooding the streets and Halloween decorations, I am having a tough time saying goodbye to summer.  All of my favorite fruits are in season during the summer months and I can’t help but to think I didn’t get quite get my fill of them.

As a tribute to summer, I made Healthy Strawberry Protein Muffins made with freeze dried strawberries. P.S. you can get freeze dried strawberries all year long! Yay!

 


Strawberry-Muffins

 

I placed one cup of freeze dried strawberries in my food processor on high until it turned to powder. I then stirred in all my dry ingredients.

 

Makes for a delicious looking batter and an even more flavorful muffin!

These muffins aren’t like your supermarket muffins. Oh no, these muffins are made with only whole food ingredients and added protein powder to give you a little extra nutritional boost to keep you energized throughout the day.

 

I used PEScience Select Gourmet Vanilla protein powder. I find it bakes better than other protein powders on the market and tastes so sweet, you won’t need to add any extra sugar.
