Good morning! Let’s kick-off the day with a delicious breakfast in the form of a protein-packed muffin that couldn’t be easier to make! Each muffin has 12+ grams of protein! How’s that for a hearty muffin?!? Just grab your 1/4 cup measuring cup, mix up the ingredients below, and then pop the batter in the oven. Simple as that! The best part about these muffins though is that they’re totally customizeable based on your taste…

Good morning and happy Monday! I hope you had a very lovely weekend! 🙂 So, here’s that mini muffin recipe that I mentioned the other day. It’s a new favorite in our house for sure. Be sure to bookmark and/or pin it! These Gluten-Free Banana Protein Mini Muffins are the perfect little treat when you want just a bite of something sweet. The recipe only calls for a handful ingredients, so you can easily whip up a…

Good morning and happy Monday to you! Quinn and I did a little baking over the weekend because we had some ripe bananas that needed to be used sooner than later. I was craving a good muffin, so what to bake was an easy decision. And I amped up the staying power with SFH protein powder, Greek yogurt, and eggs. The end result was a banana muffin that I plan to make again and again! They were also a…

Up until recently, Quinn wasn’t a picky eater. He’d pretty much eat whatever we put in front of him, but now it’s a bit more of a challenge. He definitely has his favorite foods– we joke he’s going to turn into cottage cheese because he eats so much of it– so we’re not worried about him getting enough calories, but we’re always trying to get more nutrients in him. Last week, I whipped up a batch of mini muffins with…

Hey, hey! Look at me. Two recipes in one week! Who am I?! Haha! Honestly, I’m craving ALLTHECARBS this week, and when I realized we had a couple of super ripe bananas just waiting to be used up, I knew immediately that I wanted to turn them into some sort of carb-tastic baked good. But, at the same time, I wanted to keep it healthy, especially since I just made No-Bake Double Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies and…

Hi CNC readers! I’m Hillary, the blogger behind Nutrition Nut on the Run. Besides being birthday twins, Tina and I have a few similar interests: iced coffee, running, CrossFit, all things coconut, and last, but not least, almond meal. Neither one of us eat a strict Paleo diet, but that doesn’t mean we don’t enjoy nutty, gluten-free recipes. If you’ve read CNC for a little while, you know that Tina keeps her kitchen stocked with…

Hello, hello! I hope your week is off to a fabulous start, my friends! Breakfast This morning’s breakfast was two Van’s waffles with sunflower butter and sliced banana on top. Most mornings, I want to make a two-ingredient pancake, but then I always opt for the quicker and easier toaster oven option. This breakfast requires practically no effort, but maybe I’ll switch it up tomorrow anyway. And, as always, I drank a glass of decaf…

Good morning! A huge THANK YOU to everyone who participated in the Twitter chat with Wayfair yesterday. I appreciate so many of you coming out for it. I hope you had fun! So, do you want to hear what woke me up this morning? Mal riffling through our bed looking for his wallet. I bet you’re wondering why his wallet was in our bed this morning. Oh, because he was a tad excited late last…

Good morning! Remember when Mal, Murphy, and I took a family photo for our 24 Days of Togetherness? Well, all of your suggestions to have holiday cards made inspired me to send them to our family and friends, so thank you for the motivation. And, more importantly, HAPPY HOLIDAYS to you!!! What do you think of our holiday cards? (FYI: I used Vistaprint.com to make them.) Breakfast Before bed last night Mal hinted that he wanted pancakes for breakfast…

I’m feeling so much better this morning. So good, in fact, I did a little baking! I had some canned pumpkin in the refrigerator that needed to be used up sooner than later, so I whipped up a batch of Pumpkin-Walnut Muffins, which are Paleo-friendly and gluten-free”¦ oh, and super delicious. Ingredients: 1 cup almond flour/meal 1 cup canned pumpkin 2 eggs 1/4 cup almond butter 1/4 cup honey 1 tsp baking powder 1 tsp…

It was the perfect morning to sleep late and lounge around. It’s been raining pretty hard all morning, so Mal and I weren’t in any rush to get going. Around 10:00 AM, our stomachs finally started to grumble, so we headed to the Ocean Breeze Cafe for breakfast. The menu at the Ocean Breeze Cafe is pretty extensive. They serve a range of traditional breakfast items as well as the most glorious muffins! 😀 There…

Banana + coconut!!! What a delicious combination! The batter for these muffins tasted just like banana cream pie! With the help of a little canned squash, these muffins turned out soft and moist.
