Now adays you are hearing the term ‘Superfoods’ more and more. But what exactly is a superfood? If you are to look up the definition of a superfood you will find that it is not actually a scientific term, but more of a marketing term used to describe foods that have high nutritional benefits. If you tried to look up a list of ‘superfoods’ you will find that every list varies. There is no exact list; and every day more foods are being added!

Based on what the description of a ‘superfood’ is, it looks like I am on the ‘superfoods’ diet because I like to consider 97% of what I eat to have high nutritional benefits! (There’s always that wiggle room for those treats that aren’t quite 100% healthy!) Two of the more recent ‘superfoods’ that have been crossing the headlines are Goji berries and Chia seeds! Goji berries are rich in antioxidants and vitamin A, while chia seeds are packed with healthy omega-3 fatty acids, fiber, protein and much more!

So why not take 2 great ‘superfoods’ and create a clean ‘fit’ snack cake/muffin that you can grab and eat on the go?! Well, my fit friends, that is exactly what I did! This little cake like treat makes an excellent pre workout or afternoon snack! Just bake them, throw them in individual ziplock bags and grab one on the go! A “Superfoods” snack! :)

  • 30g (just under 1/3c) Oats

  • non stick spray

********************************************************************************

Directions

Pre heat your oven to 325 degrees. Spray 4 muffin cups with non stick spray. In a bowl combine your oats, protein, chia seeds, baking powder and sweetener. Add your egg whites, milk, extracts and orange zest. Mix well. Fold your goji berries into the batter. Divide batter evenly among 4 muffins cups. Bake for about 22 minutes.
