Ran 7 miles on the treadmill at home
Our gym set up needs some serious work, but having a treadmill at home is so key when you’re crunched for time or just don’t want to care what you wear.
Some mornings coffee is coffee. Other mornings, like today, my almond coconut mocha is just delightful.
Know what else is delightful? We got even more Chobani goodness in the house.
I’m pretty sure we’re in CHO heaven. All because it was someone’s birthday yesterday.
Since I’m all about favorites today, I have to tell you about this new Good Earth Tea I just got in the mail to try.
Obviously I had to try out the Cocoa Tango one right away. Check out the ingredients.
Just my style- cocoa and chili peppers.
It made the most delicious iced tea I just sucked down.
It’s definitely going to be a new favorite. I really loved that it didn’t need any extra sweetener or anything.
It went perfectly with this.
I know, right?
All my favorites in one big huge bowl this fine afternoon.
Oh my goodness, oh my goodness, oh my goodness.
Baking the chocolate chip cookie dough Quest Protein Bars is my new favorite thing too by the way.
I just bake it at 375 convection for 5 minutes and it’s amazing.
Okay, so let’s do this. Recipe time.
Lately I’ve gotten even lazier with my most recent dark chocolate microwave muffin. I’ve given up on buying Vitatops since I’m on a serious budget after my little squash addiction, so I’ve been making this new dark chocolate muffin lately.
Pretty much daily actually. It’s made with, well, water.
Yeah. Pretty amazing.
It’s not as fabulous or moist as the original high protein dark chocolate muffin or the dark chocolate microwave muffin, but it takes about 2 minutes to throw together, is pretty darn big, seriously takes care of cravings for rich dark chocolate and is only about 120 calories.
Here you go.
120 Calorie Grain Free Dark Chocolate Muffin
makes one big muffin
2 tablespoons coconut flour (14 g)
2 tablespoons dark cocoa powder (10 g)
2 egg whites (or 1 whole egg)
3 packets of sweetener (I’ve been using NuNaturals)
1/4 teaspoon almond extract (or vanilla)
1/4-1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon (extra tablespoon is optional) of water
Mix all ingredients together. Pour in small baking dish sprayed with nonstick spray. Bake at 400 regular for 20 minutes or 375 convection.
Or if you’re in a hurry, pour in a mug sprayed with cooking spray and microwave for about 5 minutes.
But, it’s really great when topped with a warm Quest Bar
or a Chobani Bite Cup
or a frozen Chobani Bite Cup
or, well, a little of everything including some NuttZo.
Yep. That’s my favorite.
I have a feeling it could be yours too!
Here’s a couple articles I found interesting today too and thought I’d pass them along since I’m in a sharing mood and all.
Okay, enjoy the rest of the night! Happy Friday!
