I have spent the last week at home, most of the time in my pajama, cooking, eating and watching new series on Netflix. #sorrynotsorry
We all know how it is when you’re watching a movie. You just need to snack on something. Maybe we can blame the cinemas for promoting the popcorn and juice along with the movie?
Anyway, I was trying to finish the first season of Riverdale one evening. We always think the last episode of a season will be LIT and the level of excitement is above the limits. Are you thinking the same?
So, I wanted a good snack to go along with the excitement. I gave up some months ago to run to the supermarket and buy treats. Instead I am preparing them at home. This way, I know exactly what I’m eating and back then, even how many calories I was eating, as I was counting calories when cutting.
In our house you can find all the time ripe bananas. We are crazy about banana bread and actually it strikes me now, I never posted a recipe for those delicious loafs. Shame on me!
I had to wait a lot to cook a banana bread, I wasn’t in the mood for nice cream(too cold nowadays) so I decided the winner to calm down my cravings will be muffins.
I was cooking some low calories mini muffins before, but they were a bit difficult to eat. Now, with #braceface I had to rethink the recipe and make them chewable. I never thought I will describe food like that, but damn it, living with braces it’s…complicated? Should I use this word? I don’t want to scare you, guys, those who want to get braces. Let’s just say it is needed to adapt some dishes to still enjoy them. Better 🙂
I mixed some ingredients (Breaking Bad feelings in a laboratory) and boom, in 30 min I had the best muffins made by me so far to enjoy the “grand finale” of the season.
Boy, Pop’s Chock’lit Shoppe would be jealous for these muffins.
I cooked them over ten times already and everyone enjoyed them, including my vegan friends.
So, if you prepare them, pretty please tag me using #heartthatplategoodies on Instagram, so I can check and show you my appreciation 🙂
- - 2 bananas
- - 100 grams oats
- - 2 tsp maple syrup
- - 2 tsp almond butter
- - 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- - 10 flavour drops white chocolate
- - 70 grams blueberries
- - 20 grams cranberries
- Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius
- Mix all the ingredients in a blender, except the blueberries and cranberries and pour them in the muffins shapes. I am using silicone moulds as I find them easier to clean and reuse. Also, I am not wasting any paper 🙂
- Add the rest of the blueberries and cranberries and use a spoon to push them in the mix. I like to have one blueberry on top, not covered by the batter.
- Cook the muffins for 25 min at 180 degree C.
- I prepared the muffins without the flavour drops and they did not turn up that sweet. You can skip them if you want them less sweet (as the bananas are ripe thus sweet) or you can replace them with another tsp of maple syrup or 1 tsp of stevia sweetener.
- I used the maple syrup, the white chocolate drops and the almond butter from MyProtein.
