Whew! I’m finally back Chicago following a crazy few days in Minneapolis with Lee and Katie. I believe I’ve mentioned a few times that I’m focusing on an exciting fresh project for the Sweat Series! Don’t be concerned, we’ll be letting you in on all the details shortly but basically it will be the BEST HEALTH System EVER.
This post is together with SweeTango® apples
My apple cravings started support in August when my mom was visiting; we liked noshing on SweeTango® apples after our longer 12 mile bike rides along the lakeshore. I have been obsessed with raspberries all summertime, but the flavors were starting to fade; a crispy, juicy apple sounded both relaxing and delicious.
For the past few years, the best apple has been the SweeTango® They’re sweet, incredibly crunchy, wonderful for baking and one of my favorite afternoon snacks.
Usually I warm-up just a little honey almond butter to pair with my apple slices. And when you intend to try something new, sprinkle of ocean salt on top of your apple pieces to contrast the sweet tastes. SO SO SO SO GOOD.
Another snack I understand we all LOVE? Muffins! I made a decision to bake a batch of healthy apple muffins made out of whole wheat pastry flour, maple syrup, applesauce chai spices (cinnamon, cardamom, cloves and ginger!) and fresh apple chunks! The chai spices can make your home smell insanely good, you know one of those smells you intend to bottle up and keep forever and ever.
To top it all off, a light cream cheese vanilla bean glaze. Both the adults and kiddos will love them.
The best way to take pleasure from these muffins is warm with just a little almond or peanut butter. Enjoy as a snack or a quick breakfast on the run. They’re freezer friendly, too!
Okay I’ve gotta go catch through to Westworld now. Are you currently watching?! SO GOOD. xo!
