Happy St. Paddy’s Day POPsters!
Are you wearing green? If not, I’ve gotcha covered…because if you’re eating green, you are good. I just came up with a super easy and ultra healthy muffin recipe for you! As you know, I always like to keep it pretty simple (who has time!?) and this recipe is no exception! Ready for it? First take a look…and imagine a sniff!
Oh yes oh yes oh yes! That’s pistachio topped oat flour muffins! Here’s the recipe:
– 1 banana
– 1 cup oat flour (take dry oats and blend them up until they become flour)
– 1 egg
– 1 TSP nonfat plain greek yogurt
– 1 Cup spinach
– 1 tsp cinnamon
– 1/8 to 1/4 cup Stevia
– 1 TSP of crushed Pistachios
Mix it all up in a food processor or blender (except for the pistachios), then pour into a muffin tin sprayed lightly with oil. You may add fruit chunks if you’d like. I added whole blueberries. Then top with the nuts. Bake for 10-15 min at 350F. Easy!
Go food processor go!
Right before going into the oven!
While I was waiting for the muffins to bake, I poured the same batter onto my dear waffle maker and this gorgeous beauty came out. It was DELISH!!!
I was soooo excited for the muffins to finish…and when I heard the ding, I couldn’t have asked for more! My heart shaped muffin tin made them so cute 🙂
Finally after instagramming…tweeting…and facebooking…I was like OMG please let me eat this. It was so worth the wait. For those of you worried about the spinach, no worries, you can’t even taste it. All it does is give you that gorgeous green color and a ton of nutrients (it’s an excellent source of vitamin K, vitamin A, magnesium, folate, manganese, iron, calcium, vitamin C, vitamin B2, potassium, and vitamin B6). So…eat up!
These muffins are great as a breakfast treat or an hour before working out. Will give you lots of good carb energy to go hard. I hope you give this recipe a try. I’d love to see pics and what other green concoctions you come up with! Please share with me on Instagram #blogilates!
I forgot to tell you!
Today (Sunday) I am getting my hair did! I am so excited.
I am going to go for the whole ombre look as you can see here on Mila Kunis! I will try to keep as much of my length as possible, but I have major split ends so I think at least 2 inches will be chopped off. I was fortunate to read up on some very positive Yelp reviews on hair artist Guy Tang and got in touch with him immediately! We’re gonna do a lil makeover video so you can see the transformation. I’m super excited! So watch out for that!! Will be instagramming the 6 hour process. Yes. 6 HOURS!!!! Guy and I will be BFF after this hair appointment I am sure 🙂
Alrighty guys! Happy St. Paddy’s Day! Be safe and eat green!
