Whew! I’m finally back Chicago following a crazy couple of days in Minneapolis with Lee and Katie. I believe I’ve mentioned a few times that I’m working on an exciting brand-new project for the Sweat Series! Don’t worry, we’ll be letting you in on all of the details soon but basically it is going to be the BEST HEALTH System EVER.
This post is together with SweeTango® apples
My apple urges started back up in August when my mom was visiting; we cherished noshing on SweeTango® apples after our very long 12 mile bike rides along the lakeshore. I have been enthusiastic about raspberries all summer, but the tastes 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 something of my favorite afternoon snacks.
Usually I warm-up just a little honey almond butter to pair with my apple slices. And if you intend to try something new, sprinkle of sea salt together with your apple slices to contrast the sweet flavors. SO SO SO SO GOOD.
Another snack I know 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 clean apple chunks! The chai spices can make your house smell insanely good, you know one of those smells you intend to bottle up and keep permanently and ever.
To top everything off, a light cream cheese vanilla bean glaze. Both the adults and kiddos will like them.
The best way to take pleasure from these muffins is warm with a little almond or peanut butter. Enjoy as a snack or an instant breakfast on the run. They’re fridge friendly, too!
Okay I’ve gotta go catch up on Westworld now. Have you been watching?! SO EXCELLENT. xo!
