Pre- Workout Energy Muffins

PRE- WORKOUT ENERGY MUFFINS
Pre Workout Energy Muffin Recipe

These are my go-to muffins when it comes to grabbing something quick, before a long run, or just an easy breakfast. I usually make a lot at a time and keep them in the freezer. Feel free to add different fruits, or nuts! It’s a great base recipe, you can add fruits and nuts as you like to make them your own: be creative! They are totally oil free, gluten free, and have zero added sugars.

INGREDIENTS:

DRY INGREDIENTS
  • 2 1/2 cups of oats

  • 1/4 cup ground flaxseeds (do not use whole flaxseeds)

  • 3 tablespoons of Maca (you can omit, but I love this superfood great for energy and endurance)

  • 2 teaspoons of cinnamon

  • 2 teaspoons of baking powder
WET INGREDIENTS
  • 3 ripe bananas

  • 1/2 cup unsweetened apple sauce

  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk (any non-dairy milk can work)

  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract

  • 1 apple peeled and cubed (optional)

  • 8 teaspoons unsweetened fruit jam

  • 1 cup raspberries

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 F.
  2. Grind oats in a food processor until you get a “flour”- such as oat flour.
  3. Add the rest of your dry in ingredients. Then add Wet ingredients, (besides apple and raspberries) into the food processor making sure your bananas are mashed!
  4. Once everything is combined fold in your cubed apples (pears may work, or blueberries, whatever you like) You can omit this step, but it takes the muffin to another level!
  5. In a muffin pan scoop a tablespoon worth of batter into the mold then take a teaspoon worth of unsweetened jam (we like to use homemade) fill the middle with jelly and a few raspberries.
  6. Then cover with more batter (around a tablespoons worth).
  7. Top with raspberries.
  8. You should get 8 large muffins.
  9. Bake 350F for 15 minutes
