fr_4179_size880fr_4180_size880

These are one of those muffins that transform overnight..The next day they are even better and more moist. Trust me, if you can wait, it will be worth it. Loaded with fibre & packed with protein, muffins for breakfast is just what the doctor ordered…

Makes 6 large or 12 medium muffins.

Recipe:

  • 1 1/2 cups wheat bran
  • 1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened apple sauce
  • 1 whole egg
  • 1/2 tsp molasses (heat the container for a few secs. to make it easier to pour)
  • 2-3 tbsp truvia or more to taste
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 scoop Cellucor Peanut Butter Marshmallow Whey (51g)
  • 2 tbsp all purpose flour (15g)
  • 6 tbsp whole wheat flour (45g)
  • 2 tbsp milled flax seed (20g)
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt (scant)
  • 3 tbsp no sugar added raspberry jam (1/2 tbsp per large muffin or 1 tsp per regular-size muffin)

Optional: 1 cup(140g) fresh or frozen raspberries.

Optional topping: Melted peanut butter/PB2 mixed with a little water/vanilla/truvia to make a “PB & J” version.

Directions:

Preheat your oven to 375*.  Mix the wheat bran w/ your almond milk and let it soak for about 10min. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine your wet ingredients and in a another medium bowl, combine all of your dry ingredients except the truvia sweetener. Now, whisk your bran mixture into the other wet ingredients and fold in your dry mixture. Also fold in the raspberries if you choose and scoop the batter into 6-12 sprayed(with pam) or lined muffin trays. Add a spoonful of the jam to the centre of each muffin before baking. Place in the oven for 15-20min or until the tops are springy and a toothpick comes out relatively clean(ignore the jam on the toothpick, just look for any sign of wet batter!). After baking you CAN eat immediately BUTTT I recommend waiting a day to let the muffins rest and become extra moist and delicious! Enjoy 🙂fr_4181_size880

High Fibre Delicious Oatmeal!

High Fibre Oats 2 High Fibre OATS 3

Good morning! So guys, as you may know I know follow the IIFYM way of eating and it works amazing for me! But what you also should know is that fibre is an extremely important part of this diet! You cannot leave it out. So, if you are finding it hard to fit in your fibre for the day while still eating tasty food, here is a simple breakfast that packs 13-14g of fibre/ bowl! Each bowl only contains 234 calories! It also contains 8g of protein! It will keep you feeling full for long! It also is so great tasting that it won’t be a challenge to finish the whole bowl!

Serves 1:

Ingredients:

-1/4 cup dry quick oats

-2/3 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk

-1/2 tbsp ground flax

-2 drops stevia sweetener(or another sweetener to taste)

-1/4 tsp vanilla extract

-1/2 tsp cinnamon or to taste! + more for topping(I estimate)

-14g or half a serving of bran buds cereal

-1 tbsp crushed pecans(53 calories worth, I measure using a scale!)

-3 tbsp blueberries

-2 medium strawberries chopped

-optional: raisins

Directions: Combine oats and almond milk in a bowl and microwave for 2:20mins, it should come out a bit runny but not to fear, this is what we want! Now stir in the flax, vanilla, cinnamon and stevia. Next pour in your bran buds and crushed pecans, stir until combined, top with fruit, additional cinnamon and a sprinkle of sweetener(optional). As you serve, the bran buds will have begun to soak up some of the liquid making the oatmeal thick and delicious! Perfection! If you want to really get fancy and add more fibre..add a few raisins on top!

Enjoy!
