We confess- we don't do a whole lot of baking because measuring and attention to detail isn't our zone of genius. At all. But we will certainly make an exception for these... anytime.
We adapted these muffins from a couple of different recipes- one was a dessert we really liked from Chocolate Covered Katie (follow her if you don't!) and the other an energy muffin from Shalene Flanagan (again, follow if you don't!). The goal was to have a performance based muffin that is light enough to have before a workout yet nourishing enough to get through the workout.
We sampled them in the kitchen all last week. Over and over... just to be safe, for all of you. Then we really put them to the test when Mel headed to Salem, MA for a 20-mile road race. One muffin pre-run and she was good to go!
These fuse together protein and anti-oxidants from almonds, with the electrolytes, potassium and natural sweetness of bananas, combined...
