There must be a huge increase in calories consumed on rainy days. It rained for 48 hours straight and I just wanted to eat and watch movies. Since, I can’t watch the movies I’d want to watch on account of the kids and in the absence of popcorn, chips, cookies, crackers, cakes, nachos and cheesesteaks, I was desperate for some comfort foods. So with the kids assistance we made muffins two ways.
I made mini muffins sans protein powder for the kids. Then one with for the adults. We just doubling the recipe below. Both had mainly the same ingredients, except I also switched out the Splenda for brown. I didn’t use wheat flour this time around but will likely try a combo next time.
They are particularly good warmed with a bit of peanut butter.
11/2 cups of flour
3 packets of splenda
1/2 tsp of salt
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp cinnamon
4 scoops of Vanilla protein powder (we use Optimum Nutrition Natural Whey)
2 egg whites
2 bananas mashed
1/3 cup milk (we used whole milk)
1 cup applesauce (unsweetened)
3. Mix wet and dry ingredients separately before combining. Spoon into muffin trays.
4. Bake for 15-20 minutes. Check with toothpick.
