Herbalife Banana Muffins Recipe

My absolute favorite! The thing that makes this so delicious is not only that I have an unspoken infatuation for banana bread, but the fact that the Herbalife 24 Strength “Chocolate” flavor is added in this, making it unbelievably delicious!  Here’s a simple and quick recipe for you guys so you can have these read in case you’re doing heavy cycling or cardio in general.  By the way, I’ll have to make a separate blog about the Herbalife 24 Strength.  By far the best protein on Herbalife’s market.

Banana Chocolate Muffins 

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a food processor, add the following….

2 cups oats

2 cups Herbalife24 RebuildStrength

1/2 tsp salt (optional and totally not essential)

1/2 tsp baking powder

1/4 tsp baking soda

Pulse until finely grounded and pour into a large bowl

Add the following to the food processor

1 cup peanut butter

3 bananas

1 1/2 cups milk

Process it until it’s smooth

In a large bowl, whip 12 egg whites until stiff peaks form.

In turns, slowly mix one cup of the dry mixture and one cup of the wet mixture into the beaten egg whites until fully mixed.

Pour into greased muffin tins and bake for 20-25 minutes..

This might take some practice in the beginning, and you might think it’s a lot of ingredients.  Again, some of them are optional, and 12 egg whites might even be excessive.  Again, these are for my cardio junkies or even just a healthy snack during the day.  I still love my banana pancakes, so stay tuned for more of that!

 

Favorite Snack On-The-Go: Herbalife Cookies & Creme Protein Bar

I was shaking uncontrollably one day during a spin class because I was beyond hungry.  Honestly, that had to be the hungriest I’ve ever been at one particular moment in my life.

Sadly, when working out at gyms, you would find a variety of sugar-stuffed protein bars that were beyond disgusting and took hours to digest.

Well, the introduction to Herbalife back in 2013 was the biggest blessing in disguise because I woke up one day and said, “I need GOOD PROTEIN!” So, after contacting a lady, I headed to her office and I was introduced to one of the most delicious protein bars I’ve ever had.

To have 15grams of protein, on the go, at any given time, is a blessing.  Period.  On days whereas I have to make a long voyage to the airport (seems like one here in Bangkok), or especially on days I work in Bangkok in the morning; I normally leave my house around 6am, so I’m not able to have a full functional breakfast.

Of course making a smoothie is always the easiest route to go, but to make sure I get all the necessities my body needs in the morning, I gobble one of these bad boys down.

Out of all the protein bars I’ve eaten in three other countries, this is definitely the most enjoyable – and with a tall glass of milk, this is almost like setting out cookies and milk on the table for santa (because it sounds just so delicious).

With my busy schedule, and sometimes teaching upwards to 7-8 hours a day (believe it or not…that’s a pretty heavy day of teaching), this proves to be extremely vital because with the amount of breaks I have in between classes, I don’t have enough time to have a full course lunch.

With that being said, if it’s a post workout or a pre workout meal, this alleviates that feeling of hunger, gives you a good amount of energy (because the B vitamins), and you definitely don’t have that full feeling compared to eating three whole eggs before a workout.

Enjoy!
