Raspberry Apple Muffin

Hunting season has begun. Actually, I was reminded when my husbands alarm went off at 4:30am. Now, I know how he feels on my early training days...
I quickly fell back asleep till about 7 when this little princess woke up and we got to snuggle in bed for awhile.

Neither one of my twins are big snugglers so I take what I can get.. about 5 minutes later she was ready to play...

So do you remember this muffin? Well, I finally got eggs but no pumpkin! Using the same recipe, no flax egg, just two egg whites! And add raspberries and you will have perfection.

{Raspberry Apple Muffin}

  • 2 Egg whites 
  • 1/2cup applesauce (unsweetened) 
  • 2 T coconut flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 scoop of vanilla protein powder (about 2 tbsp)
  • 1/2 C. Raspberries (fresh or frozen)

Just mix all the first 5 ingredients together, fold in the raspberries and place it in the microwave for 5 minutes. 

Top it off with some fresh raspberries, You may drizzle some agave nectar or pure maple syrup on top for a little extra sweetness!

After breakfast, I headed to Body Pump! I missed teaching last week due to the relay and it felt great to be back! I love the burn you feel and the energy all the members bring to the room. I came home and whipped up a quick protein shake! + spinach!

Later today, I'm hoping to get a swim or bike in! Last week before my first Tri!! Then we have a pool party planned for tonight!

Q. What is your favorite Berry?
Its a tie between Raspberries and blueberries!! LOVE them! 


  1. A note on the pumpkin, I have actually recently purchased pumpkin puree and pumpkin pie filling at Whole Foods.

  2. I'm always so surpsised to see cakes/ cupcakes made in the microwave come out looking so dense and moist and delicious! I MUST try :)
