Baked Apple Cinnamon Energy+ Muffins

I love being out in the cold weather – running, riding, skiing, snowshoeing, whatever…

But, what I love even more, is coming IN from the cold – especially when there is something warm and delicious waiting for me – like these muffins made with Amare’s Apple Cinnamon Energy+

I ate one of these before and another after my 50-mile bike ride today – but not a bad way to start off a work morning either…

Ingredients:

  • Nonstick cooking spray (for your 12-muffin pan)

Dry:

  • 1 3/4 cup whole wheat flour (you can use all-purpose flour if whole wheat is too chewy for you)
  • 1 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 4 scoops Amare GBX Vanilla Protein
  • 4 scoops Amare Seedfiber

Wet:

  • 1 cup butter – melted
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 6 stick packs of Amare Apple Cinnamon Energy+ (dissolved in 1/2 cup water)

Directions:

  • Heat oven to 350 degrees
  • Spray the muffin tin
  • In medium bowl, whisk all the dry ingredients together
  • In another medium bowl, melt the butter
    • Add the sugars to the melted butter and cream together
    • Add the eggs to the sugar/butter mixture until combined
    • Add the Energy+ liquid until combined
  • Add the sugar/butter/eggs/Energy+ mixture to the flour/dry mixture and mix well
  • Spoon the batter into prepared muffin tins
  • Bake for 18-25 minutes – rotating pan halfway through baking time

When the muffins are done baking – allow to cool for 5 minutes before topping with:

  • Melt 4 Tablespoons of butter
  • Combine 1/3 cup sugar + 2 tsp cinnamon + 1 stick pack of Energy+
  • Brush tops of muffins with butter and sprinkle with sugar/cinnamon/Energy+ mixture (you won’t use all the butter or topping – so sprinkle liberally!

Each of the dozen muffins delivers the following “nutrition”…

  • 250 calories
  • 15g fat
  • 20g carbs
  • 7g protein
  • 1g prebiotic fiber
  • Half a serving of Energy+ packed with brain-boosting phytobiotics and ~30mg natural caffeine
