Healthy Blueberry Greek Yogurt Muffins made with whole wheat flour, greek yogurt, naturally sweetened with maple syrup and just a touch of heart healthy avocado oil (or coconut oil!).

Happy Monday. How was your weekend? MINE WAS INCREDIBLE! We had such an amazing workout + brunch at the Under Armour Women’s Chicago Brand House. I’ll have a full recap for you very soon, but just a HUGE shoutout to everyone who came to the event. You guys are literally the best & sweetest humans.

Now for your Monday… I feel as though there’s no better solution for a start to the week other than muffins.

You know me. The queen of the muffs.

WAIT A SECOND. NO.

Let’s stick with the muffin woman. Sounds much better.

Pistachio muffins made with homemade (and easy!) pistachio and oat flour, then topped with an easy scrumptious strawberry glaze. Vegan and gluten free too!

Happy Monday, loves. I hope you had a fantastic weekend.

Sometimes I never know how to start these posts other than to tell you about the days that seem to pass by too quickly. These few weeks have flown by as I developed and shot nearly 10 recipes. I’m traveling on an off for the next few weeks so I wanted to be prepared with recipes to share with you now that Spring is almost here.

By the way, Tony and I are headed to Sedona this weekend, so if you have any cool hiking recommendations, please let me know in the comments below. I so appreciate it (and you!).

Healthy gingerbread muffins that are incredibly fluffy, warm and perfect with a cup of coffee. One of my favorite muffins to enjoy during the Winter. 134 calories per muffin!

We spent the weekend inhaling Christmas cookies and eating more than I normally would. Isn’t it tough when you find yourself surrounded sugar, wine and allll the bread?!

*everyone nods yes*

Healthy Apple Oatmeal Muffins made with whole wheat flour, fresh SweeTango® apples and chai spices. Finished with a light vanilla bean glaze for a special treat!

Whew! I’m finally back in Chicago after a crazy couple of days in Minneapolis with Lee and Katie. I think I’ve mentioned a few times that I’m working on an exciting new project for the Sweat Series! Don’t worry, we’ll be letting you in on all of the details soon but basically it is going to be the BEST HEALTH PROGRAM EVER.

That being said, I want to thank you all for being patient with me. I know I’ve been posting less frequently, but promise I still have plenty of delicious goodies coming to you… like these healthy apple muffins!

How incredible would it be if I drove up to your house in a truck that served ONLY muffins? Would we automatically be BFFs? Would you pay me in gold?

Hopefully the thought of me rolling up in a muffin truck and handing out muffins doesn’t sound weird. I have good intentions, I swear.

I have to say, we had a very exciting weekend because…

Almond meal banana muffins!!! Yes, we’ll get to the recipe, but first, hi and how was your weekend?

Here in Chicago it was a beautiful 60 degrees (in February!). Of course, I took full advantage of the weekend by taking a break from work and taxes. On Friday night we stayed in, made cookies and watched the new(er) Steve Jobs movie. I full blown LOVED it and thought Michael Fassbender was fantastic. If you haven’t seen it yet, you must!

Normally I don’t ever claim things are the best, especially in my line of work. HOWEVER, when I’m able to make a normally calorie-laden blueberry muffins both nutritious AND incredible, I get a little excited. Even more thrilled when I somehow was able to make them gluten free.

First these beautiful, moist muffins were baked when I needed them the most: a few days after Thanksgiving after I came down with an absolutely dreadful post-nasal drip cough coupled with a lack of sleep from holiday festivities. The leftover blueberries that weren’t used in my blueberry pie were sitting in the fridge, begging to be thrown into some muffin batter. So off to the kitchen I went.

It neared 7am; Tony was still sleeping as I pulled the enormous muffins out of the oven and set them on the cooling rack. My goodness they were lovely and bursting with juicy blue color. I left a note for T to try them, then went out to grab cough medicine and run a few errands.

I’m back from Denver and not ready to come down from that vacation high. I realized after typing that last sentence that it was a fantastic pun. Hah.

In all seriousness, our trip to Utah and Denver was a raging success. Besides one near-death experience hiking and getting stuck at 10,000 feet in a outrageous ice/snow storm, things were incredibly awesome. There were so many places that I wanted to stop and eat at, or mountains I wanted to hike; I wish I was able to get all of it in. I do want to give a huge thanks for all of your fabulous recommendations over on Instagram. I’ll be definitely doing an AK guide to Denver SOON!
