Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins
- 9 egg whites
- 1 1/4 tsp baking powder
- 3/4 cup pumpkin puree
- 3/4 cup rolled oats
- 1 1/2 scoops chocolate protein powder
- 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- 2 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tsp nutmeg
- 12 packets Splenda® sweetener or Stevia powder, to taste
- 40 semi-sweet chocolate chips
- Cooking spray
PreparationPreheat oven 350 degrees. Combine all ingredients (except chocolate chips and cooking spray) in a blender and blend well. Spray muffin tins (use a tin that makes six large muffins) liberally. Fill each cup 3/4 full. For each muffin, put four chocolate chips into batter, so that they go into the middle of the muffin, then place the four remaining chocolate chips on the top. Repeat for each muffin. Bake 20 to 22 minutes on the middle rack. Here is a TRAICK AND TREAT from Mike Whitfield
The Burpee/Spiderman Pushup Combo is when you perform a
burpee, but after you kick your feet out, you perform one Spiderman
Pushup per side, then kick your feet in and finally, stand back up.
It works your abs a lot harder than silly crunches or sit-ups (while
saving your back and neck, too). In fact, I've written a tough, LONG
"HallowMEAN finisher" for you today that was specifically designed
to work your abs
HallowMEAN Ab Finisher
Do the following circuit as many times as possible in 6 minutes
and 66 seconds, resting only when necessary.
Yes, I realize that 6 minutes and 66 seconds is 7 minutes and 6
seconds. But that's not nearly as scary. It's a HallowMEAN finisher
man. Yeeeaaaaahhh c'mon.
Whatever. Here is the circuit:
Burpee/Spiderman Pushup Combo (5)
Goblet Jump Squat (10)
Mountain Climbers (10/side)
That's a lot better than long, boring cardio. Plus, you'll work your
abs harder while burning off even the most stubborn belly fat.
Intervals are cool, but finishers are even cooler.
