Vitamix Apple Banana Muffins Using Almond Flour ~ Fixate Cookbook

This recipe is modified from the original which is found in the Fixate cookbook written by Autumn Calabrese, creator of the famous 21 Day Fix program, as well as Hammer and Chisel and the newest workout program, 80 Day Obsession that uses timed nutrition to help you balance your macros at each meal and gets you results quickly! You can also access these recipes on Beachbody On Demand.

Yields 9-10 muffins. Counts as one blue and one purple container if following a Beachbody program and using the portion control containers. You can easily half this recipe. I have modified this recipe to be even tastier, while still keeping the calorie count the same. I added vanilla, cinnamon and stevia. Gives them a lot more flavor!

Ingredients:
  • 2 ripe bananas mashed
  • 2 large eggs, beaten
  • 1 1/2 cups almond flour (make your own in the Vitamix, ninja or Blendtec blender - do 1 cup at a time. This is preferred as your flour will still have some small crunchy bites!)
  • 3/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • Dash of himalayan pink salt or sea salt
  • 3/4 apple grated
  • 1 Tbsp butter (could probably use coconut oil)
  • 2 tiny scoops of pure stevia (like the sweetleaf brand)
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
Directions:
  1. Preheat oven 350 degrees
  2. Spray muffin tin with cooking spray (a silicone tin is wonderful. Makes it much easier to clean and pop out)
  3. Combine eggs, banana, & butter into a bowl and mix well. Stir in grated apple. 
  4. Combine almond flour, baking soda, and salt in a medium bowl, mix well.
  5. Combine both bowls of ingredients together and mix until blended
  6. Divide batter evenly into muffin tins
  7. Bake 15-18 minutes or until golden brown
  8. Cool and Enjoy!
This recipe is from the Fixate cookbook by Autumn Calabrese (creator of 21 Day Fix
They count as 1 purple and 1 blue container.

2018 New Year New You VIP Fitness & Nutrition Accountability Group


Join me for 60 days to Rock your New Years Resolutions. Most people fail because they lack support and accountability. That's what this group will give you. You'll have daily support and accountability and a wonderful community of supportive like-minded women just like you. I’ll be working right along with you because this is a lifestyle change and I may not have it all together but I’m sure as heck going to fight right along side you.

The private Group has Working mommas and busy stay at home mommas who are trying to make the time to get their workout in, change their eating patterns and just feel better overall. This program will give you the tools and support you need to make the changes you need to make.

If you already have a workout program, this will be so helpful for getting your nutrition in line and having the support you need to make sure you are showing up for your workouts. Just because the gym is there, doesn't mean you're going. Daily accountability helps you to make it a priority and helps you to follow through with your commitment.

Many of us in the group will be challenging ourselves and doing 80 Day Obsession and focusing on timed nutrition to get incredible results in a short amount of time. If you would like to know more about this program, we can chat more about it as well! There is a current free sneak peek of the 5 day program, A Little Obsessed, available when you sign up for a free club membership account HERE. 

If you are interested in learning more, email me or add me on facebook, and I will contact you with more information and we can see if this group is a good fit for you and your needs and goals.

Open to Coaches on our Team and current customers! 

I look forward to talking to you soon! <3 Jen

Skinny Jenny - Lower Sugar and Calorie Cosmo Recipe

SKINNY JENNY COSMO



Join my free online fitness community here.

Try this tasty skinny martini using vodka, lime, orange, and cranberry juice. It's super easy and tastes great. I came up with it one day trying to reduce sugar and not use syrups with corn syrup in them.

Yields one drink

1/2 cup ice

1 oz vodka

1 oz no sugar added cranberry juice

1 wedge orange, squeezed * tangerine works well too.

1 wedge lime, squeezed

A dash of real stevia, artificial sweetener or chemical of choice lol :)  or 1 tsp sugar

Approx 3 oz sparkling water (lemon or cranberry lime works well)

Place everything in a shaker cup and shake to combine (be mindful of the pressure in the sparkling water. If you seal the cup it will build up the pressure. Strain out ice and pour the liquid into a martini glass.


Drop in a fresh blueberry, raspberry or blackberry for extra pizzaz! Enjoy!

Easy & Fun Halloween Spider Web Taco Dip Tray


Halloween Spider Web "7" Layer Taco Dip

This is such an easy platter to make for a party. Your guests will think you worked so hard *insert evil laugh here :D  Pick up the purple web shaped platter at the Dollar tree for extra snaz!

Ingredients:

  • 1 can refried beans 
  • 1 small container of sour cream  (**reserve about 1/3 for the web)
  • 2 tbsp taco seasoning (or make your own because the packets have MSG -- see recipe below)
  • 1 tomato, diced
  • Mexican blend cheese
  • 1/2 to 2/3 container of guacamole - pre made so it does not turn brown
  • sliced black olives
  • 3 plastic spider rings or plastic spiders washed and dried.
  • The cool platter is from the Dollar Tree. 


Directions:

Combine beans, 2/3 sour cream and 2 tbsp taco seasoning and spread on platter. Top with guacamole carefully so you do not mix the colors on top. If they are mixing, try freezing the beans covered for a few hours, then you can easily spread on the guac! Sprinkle cheese, tomato and olives around the edges. Pipe sour cream on top of guacamole using a small zip loc bag with a tiny hole, or a piping bag with a writing tip.


Taco Seasoning Ingredients
 (use 2 tbsp of this mix) - combine all in an old jar to use in chili or mexican dishes. It's great!
  • 2 tablespoon chili powder

  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano

  • 1 Tbsp ground cumin
