Cinnamon vanilla muffins

I am just really lacking motivation these days. 
However, I have been somewhat productive. Well, in some areas. I am doing my best to stick to the 40-30-30 diet, natural and organic at the same time. Let's be honest... it mostly sucks. But there are a few foods that I love and could eat all day everyday... Chicken chili, And these awesome muffins.

Cinnamon vanilla muffins.

1/2 cup oats
1 1/4 cup 0% Greek Yogurt
1/3 cup coconut oil 
1/2 cup organic sugar
2 eggs {I use egg powder and they are much more moist that way, If you use eggs, add 2-3 tablespoons of water as well as the eggs}
2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
3 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 cup whole wheat flour

Add all ingredients except flour, mix until combined. Then stir in flour. Use a muffin scoop to put into cupcake liners. Bake at 375 for 15 min. It makes about 20 muffins. Weird number I know, But I just cant get the ratios correct to get 24 muffins. There are about 115 calories per muffin, And to make it 40-30-30 I eat it with some fruit and some Canadian bacon....mmmmmm.... One of my favorite pre 
cardio meals. Oh and I should mention that they are a huge hit with the kiddos.

I had to throw this one in there, You know, proof to my children in 30 years that when I am old and saggy, I can refer to this post and say listen up you little punk.... I used to be buff and hot. Oh you know, And to let them know that being healthy is and was important to me and that I hope it will be to them too. Blah, blah, blah... 
And a HUGE shout out to my partner in crime Sarah Poor who is on this "diet" {Its really a long term eating plan, not a diet, I hate that word} She is on this too and has now entered into uncharted territory, Weighing in at the lowest she ever has in her adult life, and is killing her weight loss goals! Get it girl! She makes me so proud and keeps me motivated to not eat candy corn and cupcakes. And she also smokes me when we run too. I can't keep up with that machine. I would have put her bicep picture up too, But she would have put me to shame... And we can't have that now can we.
