Sometimes as you come down the homestretch of a workout program you just need to kick it up a notch!

I’m in the midst of week 6 of the new Bootcamp style program 22 MINUTE HARD CORPS and week 2 of my Bikini Bootcamp. But if I’m being real with you all…I have an untamable sweet tooth!!!

Ok – so its kind of tamable – BUT I love when I can find clean alterntives to old favorites and that’s exactly what I got with these muffins!

WHAT YOU NEED:

-2 ripe bananas
-2 cups oats
-1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
-2 eggs
-1.5 tsp vanilla
-1 tsp cinnamon
-dash of Himalayan sea salt
-1 1/4 cups plain Greek yogurt
-Chocolate chips, nuts, sprinkles, and pirate flags at your own discretion 😜

WHAT YOU NEED TO DO:

Blend all ingredients together (I had to stop and stir about 3x)

Pour into 12 (lined) muffin tins

Bake at 350 for 30 minutes

Enjoy!!!

Now I will admit – these were not on my Bikini Bootcamp meal plan…initially…however as you can see form the list above (minus the chips & sprinkles) this is totally clean!

The container equivalents were close to my Mancakes – which include a combo of oats, egg/egg whites and fruit…as does the above with some greek yogurt as well.

The more I thought about it this made 12 muffins.

The ingredients included 4 “purples” – 4 “yellows” – (almost) 3 “reds”

Sometimes the “fix portion breakdown” doesn’t quite line up exactly but my estimate is 3 muffins would yield you 1 Purple, 1 yellow and 1 red not counting the sprinkle of chocolate chips!

Peaches-n-cream crunchy oatmeal

Did you know Chambersburg is known for its peaches?!? Well, I for one I had NO IDEA! However my amazing Coach, Deidra, just so happens live in Chambersburg and just so happens to be from the town I currently live in. Lucky for me she was visiting her family this weekend and brought home a bunch of peaches and shared with me!!! We got a little visit in and I got some fresh peaches – win win!!!

I’ve ate fresh peaches before, liked them, made them into baby food when my youngest was just starting out on fruits but to be honest I grew up on the canned stuff. The fuzz on an actual peach kind of scared me and I never quite knew how to cut around that pit?! Every time I tried I butchered the peach! Turns out…I just don’t think I ever had the right/ripe peach! This was easy peezy – slice all the way around and pull apart! DONE!

These peaches Deidra gave me are AHMAZING! They’re so juicy and have the perfect sweetness.

So now, what to do with my peach???

What to do with my peaches?

I typically start my day the same exact way everyday. Wake up, drink my E&E, do my workout, have my Shakeology and get started with my day…but I’ve decided to switch things up – insert – Peaches-n-cream crunchy oatmeal for breakfast! And no, not the artificial prepackaged stuff either!

WHAT YOU NEED:

(I’ve added the coordinating 21-day fix containers for quick reference)

  • 1/2 Cup of rolled quick oats (or your favorite oats) – 1 YELLOW
  • 1/2 a Peach, diced – 1/2 PURPLE
  • 4 Halved Walnuts – 1/2 Blue

Optional:

  • 1/4 – 1/2 Scoop Vanialla Protein Powder – This would count towards your reds…One serving of Whey Protein powder is considered to be 1.5 scoops – so depending on how much you put in would determine how to count it for your containers. I used about 1/4 and it was plenty!
  • tsp Honey

WHAT YOU NEED TO DO:

  1. Cook the oats according to package directions (I combined 1/2 cup oats with enough water to cover the oats completely and microwaved for 1 minute)
  2. Add your protein powder and/or honey, walnut pieces and diced peach – mix and enjoy!

Perhaps the best part was – my toddler loved it! I left the walnuts out and didn’t use any sweetener but rather cooked his oats in almond milk and topped with the peaches…after the fact I thought cinnamon would have been a great add too – perhaps tomorrow!

Here’s to hoping you and your little ones enjoy!
