Anyone else out there following 80 Day Obsession? It is the new program that I have been following. It includes home workouts and a meal plan that incorporates timed nutrition. Meaning, it tells you what to eat, how much and when to eat it. It has been a new challenge for me and has been a great excuse to try out new recipes. I cannot take the credit for this one. A challenger in my fitness accountability group that I host came up with it and I tweaked it a tiny bit. If you are following the program like me, this meal is perfect for the preworkout meal or the post workout meal. I have been having this as my post workout meal with a hot cup of coffee in the morning and it is so good. My kids love them too, so that is a huge score for me! Ben calls them treats - works for me kid! Lol!
This serves one. Multiply the recipe if cooking for multiple people.
- 1 cup of carrots
- 1/4 cup of dry oats (I used gluten free)
- 2 eggs
- 1 tsp of cinnamon
- 1 tsp of baking powder
- 1 tsp of vanilla extract (maple or almond extract will work too!)
- 1/4 tsp of nutmeg
- 1 packet of stevia
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- In a large pot, add carrots and cover with water. Bring to a boil and cook until carrots are soft enough to stick a fork through them. Roughly 10-15 minutes. Once done, remove from heat and drain the water.
- In a blender, add cooked carrots, oats, eggs, cinnamon, baking powder, vanilla extract, nutmeg and stevia. Blend until ingredients are smooth.
- Pour the batter into a non-stick muffin tin. NOTE: Please make sure your muffin tin is sprayed with some sort of cooking spray or use a muffin liner of some sort. These can be tough to remove from the muffin pan.
- Cook muffins for 30-35 minutes. Although I hate this word, these muffins are really moist and need to be cooked long enough. If you find them too moist, cook them longer.
I find that these muffins store great in the fridge and I reheat them the following day in my air fryer or oven for 5 minutes or so. Both of my kids loved these! My littlest son has an egg allergy and I cooked them for him and replaced the egg with apple sauce and increased the oats. He absolutely loved them!
CONTAINER COUNTS: Entire recipe counts as 1 red, 1 yellow and 1 green. I top them with a teaspoon of melted peanut butter or grassfed butter, which would count as 1 tsp.
