I’m heading to the beach in T minus 5 days, so this week’s Fun Food Friday is taking a detour through bikini-ville. I dug this recipe out of one of my favorite Pinterest boards, and after a few minor adjustments, I created these magical little low-fat muffins that will (hopefully) do the dirty work for my sugar cravings this week.
In grad school I remember learning that muffin mixtures needed to be stirred until “just combined,” and not overly blended, so instead of using a mixer for all of the ingredients, I put the oats in the food processor alone and then combined them with everything else. I also added a little extra vanilla and a tsp of almond extract. Plus, I sprinkled a little sea salt on the top of each muffin before baking them.
These little guys are less than 100 kcals each and they are packed with foods I usually put in my body anyways (e.g. oats, Greek yogurt). Enjoy!
