Healthy Microwaveable Apple Pie Quinoa Flake Protein Muffin
Winter break is so close I can almost taste it, but boy am I busy! Should I be surprised? No, I’m in college and finals are right around the corner. I feel like everyone is running around like a hamster on a wheel. You know the kind, the oh-my-gosh-I-have-three-exams-tomorrow-how-will-I-EVER-survive-the-world-is-coming-to-an-end-because-my-coffee-mug-is-empty-why-why-WHYYY-*head clunks on desk*-*snores* kind.
But I’m feeling pretty chill (except I agree with the oh-my-gosh-my-coffee-mug-is-empty part). Do you wanna know why? I’m coping with the suddenly drastic (and totally excessive) amount of schoolwork due to:
1. Coffee (duh)
2. Easy peasy microwave “bakes!” Especially this 100% delicious and nutritious Apple Pie Quinoa Flake Protein Muffin 🙂
Soft, moist, sweet and cinnamon-y, this muffin is filled with healthy fats, fiber, protein and complex carbohydrates to provide sustained energy and steady blood sugar levels throughout the day so I can focus in class
and party hard later… juuuust kidding! and complete all of my assignments.
It helps tremendously to enjoy a decadent-tasting dessert for breakfast on mornings where I am crunched for time. I feel happy, calm, energized, full and satisfied for a full day of work. With such a quick and easy recipe, you will be too!
Wow, what a balanced breakfast! With only 330 calories, 7g of healthy fats, 8g of fiber and 21g of protein you are almost guaranteed to feel full for hours. Personally, I like eating a higher calorie breakfast because it keeps my hunger at bay until I am finished with my morning classes so I top my Apple Pie Quinoa Flake Protein Muffin with some Homemade Almond Butter or Cinnamon Raisin Peanut Butter. Deeeelicious 🙂
You’ve gotta try this recipe for yourself. You will fall in love.
