If you're like me, you really enjoy sweets, and you'll love this recipe!
The key to enjoying sweets without undermining your "feel good" or weight loss efforts is by eating sweets that also include fiber, protein, and other nutrients that ultimately tame your cravings for MORE sweets and enhance your efforts to feel your best!
Sweets have a bad rap because the most popular choices include candy, cookies, chocolate bars, icecream, cakes, and other highly processed desserts. Along with being loaded with sugar and fat, these options are cheap, easy, and convenient. That's why most people get hooked on them!
But what if a better, healthier choice was available for you the next time your body craved something on the sweet scale?
By baking healthy sweet treats you make that possible! Instead of denying yourself of what your body craves (OR give in to eating something loaded with empty calories) you can choose instead to indulge in a delicious, healthy, nutrient dense treat.
I have many healthy sweet treats to share with you, but this week I'm sharing my current obsession:
Chunky Apple Blueberry Muffins that will satisfy your sweet tooth and also fuel your body with energy!
I combine oats, chunky applesauce, blueberries, flaxseed, almond milk, and a little coconut sugar for a healthy, protein & fiber filled muffin that you can enjoy as a snack, a part of breakfast, or an after lunch or dinner dessert. Eat warm or cold! I don't know how long they last because this recipe makes 12, and they are gone within 3 days! :)
Enjoy with a cup of tea or almond milk!
