Supercharged Pancakes

Usually I like to supercharge my smoothies with superfoods in the mornings, but sometimes you have to switch it up! Working with one of my favorite superfood brands KOS, I decided to pack some pancakes with superfoods.

Chocolate Walnut GF Vegan Muffins

Comment

Chocolate Walnut GF Vegan Muffins

There are so many amazing things about this recipe that I wasn’t totally sure what to even call it. We’ve got veggies, protein, chocolate, bananas and a blender to do all the work for you! 

This is my GO-TO muffin recipe. I tweak it here and there to satisfy my flavor cravings but the base has been the same for years. If you are an OG follower, you’ve seen these before and we all know how hooked you are on them. This is my new little vegan twist, with a little extra calories from the oats to keep you satisfied for longer.

Eat one, or two, or five. Just don’t take your eyes off them for too long or they’ll disappear. Best kept in the fridge and eaten cold, trust me in this one!

The Goods

Makes 12 muffins

  • 2 cups oats

  • 2 small zucchini’s, peeled and shredded

  • 1/2 cup almond butter

  • 2 bananas

  • 2 flax eggs (or two eggs if not vegan) 

  • 1/4 cup maple syrup

  • 3/4 cup chocolate chips divided

  • 1 tsp baking soda

  • 1/4 cup chopped walnuts

The Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 350.

  2. Line a muffin pan with parchment cupcake sheets.

  3. In a high powered blender, add the oats. Blend on high until the oats are a flour like consistency. Then add everything else besides 1/2 the chocolate chips and the walnuts.  Blend for about 2 minutes until the batter is super smooth.

  4. Pour into muffin cups 3/4 way full and top with the rest of the chocolate and walnuts. 

  5. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until the muffins bounce back when you touch them. Let them cool completely and store in the fridge!

Golden Milk Latte

Golden Milk Latte

There’s nothing really better than sitting on my yoga mat infront of my open French doors, writing and drinking one of these yummy lattes. 

I love this version, because as a workaholic like myself, I need a little kick from some caffene 90% of the time I drink a latte. I added brewed black tea, and I gotta tell ya, it’s a winner for sure. A great switch up to my daily matcha, this latte will be in my rotation for years to come.

Make it as spicy as you’d like with ginger, or as sweet as you like with maple syrup or honey. Add your favorite adaptogens or whatever your body is currently craving.  

This is also great served over ice for those warmer months! Enjoy!
