Since I’m gluten and dairy free (and usually try to count my calories on the My Fitness Pal app), I don’t usually get to eat muffins :(. HOWEVER, my dad makes a bunch of batches of these yummy muffins (for me with GF flour & dairy free ingredients) – and they’re super healthy and yummy (I’m always tempted to eat the whole batch, haha)!
In 2008 my dad, uncle, and aunt did Eagleman 70.3 and stayed in a Bed and Breakfast. The owner served health muffins to them, and my dad said that they were the best muffins ever (made with organic fruit & nuts – yum!). Ever since then, he has made about 100 each year to bring to Lake Placid (my family goes each year for Ironman). During this week, we eat them a lot (and share them with my aunt, uncle, cousins and other members of the Glen Rock Tri Club!).
Make a batch before your next race to enjoy before & after! Add & experiment with your favorite types of fruit and nuts. The full recipe is below. Enjoy!
