Apple Cinnamon Recovery Muffins  & Do it yourself Recovery Drank

I made these quick muffins and recovery drink to have on hand after my intense MommiesRfit Bootcamp workouts and after my training runs. (As Tony says, “The recovery drinks, that’s why I do the workouts.”) The muffins are about 50% carbs and 20% protein, the drink 100% carbs, (49 g carbs, plus sodium,potassium, and vitamins). A serving of the drink and one muffin total just about 300 calories. Apple Cinnamon Recovery Muffins & Do it yourself Recovery Drank Recipe Type: Snack Author: Cowgirlbeans Serves:...

Chili Rellenos Casserole

I had some beautiful anaheim and poblano peppers and thought about chili rellenos...after brainstorming on Chowhound and some recipe sites, I decided to go the casserole route (like a cheesy egg breakfast casserole on Pioneer Woman) , but make it more of a tamale/rellenos casserole, including a layer of sweet corn masa, and dairy free of course.

Strawberry Crumble Blondie Bars

I created these for a picnic at one of our favorite local parks. We loaded up the picnic basket with Quinoa salad, veggie straws, spicy hummus and sweet peppers for dipping. And loaded up the car with friends and dogs and a few of these delicious summery bars in the basket to enjoy by the lake. The leftover bars were reminiscent of a strawberry crumble when we added a scoop of vanilla coconut ice cream on top.     Strawberry Blondie Bars Recipe Type: Dessert Author: CowgirlBeans Ingredients Dry 2 cups Oats 1½ cup Flour 1/2 cup...
