Flourless Banana Apple Muffins
Flourless Banana Apple Muffins made in the blender with only a handful of simple ingredients! They’re gluten-free, dairy-free, refined sugar free and 21 Day Fix and 80 Day Obsession meal plan approved; so they make a deliciously healthy treat for when those cravings hit.
If you follow me on Instagram and watch my stories, you may have noticed the meal plan and workout program I’m following, 80 Day Obsession. I’ve been posting a little here and there. Well, I’m loving it.
The plan is written by fitness trainer, Autumn Calabrese, the same trainer behind 21 Day Fix, Fix Extreme and more. For the meal plan, she continues with the use of her container system for portion control and adds in something new – timed nutrition. Autumn calls it her secret weapon! It’s not complicated, but it’s extremely effective.
If you’re already familiar with the portion control system (that was introduced with the 21 Day Fix) the timed nutrition plan is very similar, with a few SPECIFIC tweaks.
This plan isn’t just about eating X food throughout the day but eating EXACTLY as she outlines for EACH meal.
No guesswork, totally simplified to get the BEST results.
She covers it all, providing a “workout block” which provides choices for what to eat BEFORE you work out, during, after and as your first post workout MEAL to follow.
She also takes the allotted containers for the ENTIRE day that remains and gives you specific combos so you don’t have to figure it out…you just FOLLOW IT! According to my specific meal plan, Meal Plan B, there is one point of the day where I need a blue (healthy fat) and purple (fruit) container. That’s where these muffins work perfectly!
We all eat all throughout the day, timed nutrition is no different, you are just going to be more precise with your timing while keeping your macro nutrients balanced throughout the day.
It’s based on a combination of healthy carbohydrates, healthy fats and lean proteins to keep your metabolism burning like a furnace so you shed fat and build lean muscle no matter what time you work out and what your day looks like! Winning!
Not only is the meal plan awesome, but the workouts are amazing. I’m no stranger to exercise and I’ve been a little sore after every single workout!
It might sound a bit overwhelming and challenging, but I’m loving that it totally takes the guesswork out of what workout I’m going to do and when and what I need to eat to get results. I’m at the two week mark of the program (but, you can join in at any time) and I’ve lost 5 pounds so far. I cannot wait to see where the next couple of months takes me!!
And back to the yummy muffins – they’re so easy to make, with only 6 ingredients (+ a dash of salt) and they only take about 5 minutes to toss together ingredients like bananas, almond flour, and egg into a blender; mixing it up for around 15 seconds to get everything all nice and smooth. Pour the batter into your muffin pan, pop it into the oven for about 22 minutes and you have yourself a batch of scrumptiously tender muffins that literally melt in your mouth.
