Let’s talk about Energy…
Have you seen mine?
Pretty sure it ran off to an exclusive resort in Tahiti somewhere, and is gettin’ rubbed with suntan oil by the one and only Christian Bale…
Holy Batman! Dang you Energy…
I’m sure it probably hates me and never wants to come back after that Minnie Mouse party…Especially after little miss received a bicycle and has decided it’s much more fun to ride when mom pushes instead of peddling.
Dear Energy, i’m so sorry but I need you back. I can’t go to bed at 8:30 anymore, don’t you see that Bachelor Pad is on till at least 10?!
Mind you I still have a toddler, messy house, new baby to prepare for, and I’m as big as a walrus?!
And this walrus is hungry!
No more PB&J’s, smoothies, and cereal. Me want real food!
Let’s not forget it’s been too long since I wore makeup…And I’m pretty sure I wear the same sweat pants every other (each?) day…My husband is starting to worry.
Listen my little Energy, I promise I’ll give you something to come back for. Granted it may not be dressed in a muscular leather suit, but I promise it includes chocolate!
And it won’t require much work from you at all. Just 60 seconds and it’s done, ready to enjoy!
At least tell me you will think about it?
60 Second Chocolate Chip Muffin
1 tsp. melted and cooled coconut oil
2 TB mashed ripe banana (Or applesauce)
1 TB beaten egg
1/2 tsp vanilla
2 1/2 TB. whole wheat pastry flour
1/4 tsp. baking soda
dash of salt
2-3 TB. chocolate chips (Or sub blueberries for a breakfast muffin!)
1. In a small/medium ramekin add oil. Then add in banana, egg, and vanilla and stir together until combined. Next add in the dry ingredients:
2. Mix together until combined, then stir in chocolate chips:
3. Microwave for 60 seconds.
4. Top with banana ice cream (frozen banana blended), peanut butter, milk, more choclolate chips, etc.
(Variations: Sub protein powder for flour. Add 1 TB of oats, instead of 1 TB of flour. Mix in different spices such as cinnamon and nutmeg. Throw in fruit for a fruit muffin. Add a little orange juice and zest for a tropical muffin. Top with nuts, coconut, chia seeds, etc…)
How simple was that?
That could be breakfast, afternoon snack, before bedtime pick me up!
I promise it’s all yours as long as you allow me to watch at least one episode of trash TV a night…
Oh…And would you mind letting your friend Batman know that my shoulders seem a little tense?
Thanks Energy! You’re a real pal!
