Health is having the energy to exercise and play with your kids, the mental clarity to excel at your job, and the focus to get what you want out of life. Most people don't know what it's like to truly feel well.  It's more than just the absence of disease.  Good nutrition and physical activity are the core to truly feeling well. Whether you're helping employees reach their goals or setting your own, Stephanie can help you find better nutrition as the first step towards a better life.

Flourless Banana Muffins

I'm not much of a breakfast person, but I feel so much more energized and focused when I eat before my coffee or tea. This recipe is a lifesaver for those times when I'm not in the mood for my typical boiled eggs, yogurt, or almond butter on toast.

If you want to go healthier than the dark chocolate chips, you could try walnuts and banana chunks or pumpkin puree and spices.

I made these muffins last week as a backup breakfast option and we ended up eating some for dessert because they were so good!  There's no way you'd know that the main ingredients were oats, bananas, and yogurt.

Why these muffins are dietitian approved:

Bananas and yogurt provide moisture and are a tasty and healthy fat substitute.

They're whole grain and only use oats.

Dark chocolate chips- enough said.


Ingredients:

1 cup plain fat free Greek yogurt

2 bananas

2 eggs

2 cups old fashioned oats

1/4 cup brown sugar

1 1/2 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp baking soda

Mini dark chocolate chips to sprinkle on top

Directions:

1) Preheat the oven to 400 degrees and spray your muffin pan with oil

2) Add oats to a food processor and process until smooth. Add the remaining ingredients and mix on high until the batter is smooth and creamy.

3) Fill each muffin hole 3/4 with batter and top with a few chocolate chips. Bake about 15 minutes or until you can insert a toothpick in the center and it comes out clean.
