Apple PB Muffins and Chocolate Peanut Butter Smoothie – Recipes and Giveaway!

This giveaway post is sponsored by MightyNut. I received product and compensation as part of my ambassadorship with Fit Approach. All opinions are my own.

Go Mighty Powdered Peanut Butter - Not one, but two great, protein-packed recipes! Raspberry and Chocolate Peanut Butter Smoothie Bowl, as well as Apple Peanut Butter mini muffins. Perfect post-workout fuel, or a healthy breakfast, these recipes will keep you full and give you a protein boost without resorting to processed protein powder.

I have not one, but two protein-packed recipes for you today! Now, you know I am not the biggest fan of protein powder. I’d always rather get my protein in the form of actual food, rather than a supplement. I realize how easy protein powder is for baking and smoothies, though, which is why I was so excited when I heard about the new MightyNut powdered peanut butter from Peanut Butter & Co. It gives you the convenience of a powder and it’s a real food – win win!

Powdered peanut butter is simply made of peanuts which have been roasted and pressed, removing most of the fat. What’s left is the protein, fiber and the peanut taste. It’s perfect for cooking, or you can just add water to rehydrate and make your own peanut spread. MightyNut sent me two flavors to try – Original and Chocolate – so I decided to create a recipe with each!

The best part is you also have the chance to win a jar of your own, in your choice of flavors: Original, Chocolate, Flax & Chia, or Vanilla. Info on entering can be found after these delicious recipes:

Apple Peanut Butter Muffin Recipe - High in protein, thanks to powdered peanut butter, these homemade apple mini muffins are a great post-workout snack idea, or part of a delicious, healthy breakfast. This easy recipe is a hit with kids, too! (Check out the rest of the post for a chocolate peanut butter smoothie bowl recipe) | baking | healthy cooking |

One of my very favorite things about fall is the abundance of apples. We’ve been stocking up on bags of fresh-picked apples at our local farmer’s market and we also made it for some late-season apple picking at a nearby orchard. They’re definitely my favorite fruit, so putting together apples and peanut butter (a perfect match) was a no-brainer.

A delicious pairing of apples and peanut butter in these protein-packed muffins - great for post workout, or part of a healthy breakfast!

This is a protein smoothie without the highly processed protein powder. Guaranteed to keep you full, refuel after your workout and build lean muscle! | smoothies | smoothie recipe | healthy breakfast idea |

Now, onto the chocolate! 🙂 I’ve been making so many smoothies recently, since one of my lovely clients from Brooklyn gave me an amazing BlendTec blender as a goodbye/housewarming gift when we moved. What could be yummier than a chocolate peanut butter smoothie bowl? Adding raspberries! It’s like a PB&J with chocolate – super breakfast deliciousness and it is protein PACKED, thanks to the powdered peanut butter as well as my secret (well, not so secret anymore!) ingredient of cottage cheese. It may sound a little weird, but it gives you a great, filling protein boost without resorting to a protein powder mix, and you can’t taste it!
