Want to lose weight? Or maybe you’re tired of that little bit of body fat that seem to cling to your belly or thighs no matter what you do!?
Well let me tell you….depriving yourself of all of the foods you love is not the way to get the results you want…especially if you want those results to LAST!
Part of staying consistent so you can get the body you’ve always dreamed about, and FEEL great, is getting to still indulge in the types of foods you love.
Like for me…I LOVE sweets.
The second I force myself to cut out sweet treats, like ice cream or cookies, I instantly start craving them and end up binging on them!
So instead of cutting out those delicious treats, I make macro-friendly “tweaks” to those recipes so I can still enjoy them AND get the results I want without risking becoming deprived and binging!
One of my favorite macro-friendly MUFFIN recipes is below…You’ll love it too especially if you’re a PEANUT BUTTER LOVER!
Quick Peanut Butter Protein Muffins
SERVINGS: 4 (1 muffin is a serving)
MACROS (per muffin):
Protein: 10 grams
Carbs: 4 grams
Fat: 1 grams
1 scoop PEScience Select Protein Peanut Butter Cookie*
¼ cup Unsweetened Applesauce
1 tbsp Coconut Flour
2 Egg Whites (6 tbsp liquid egg whites)
¼ tsp Baking Soda
¼ tsp Cinnamon
Peanut butter drizzle:
12 g (2 tbsp) PB Fit Peanut Butter Powder
1.5 tbsp Water
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Spray a regular sized muffin tin with cooking spray. If you use the regular-sized muffin tin, it will make four muffins. You can use a smaller tin to make more.
Combine all of the ingredient in a bowl and whisk quickly for about a minute to combine and help the batter fluff up.
Then divide evenly between the 4 muffin tins. Bake at 350 for about 10 minutes.
While baking, combine PB Fit and water to create your simple peanut butter drizzle.
Once muffins are done, remove from the oven and top with the drizzle. You can even save some on the side to dip the muffin in!
* You can use any peanut butter flavored protein of choice.
This is why I LOVE Macro Cycling. No foods are off limits. You can still indulge in the treats you love. AND you can get killer results to look and feel great.
