Peanut Butter Banana Power Muffins

2 things I’m really into right now:

  1. Ground flaxseeds
  2. Chia Seeds

Why?

Well as much as I loveeee Colorado it is a very dry state. I guess it’s allowed to have one downfall 🙂 And because of this my nails have gotten more brittle & my skin more dry.

Ground Flaxseeds help support healthy skin, hair and nails.

Chia seeds  are a valuable source of fiber and support cardiovascular and brain health as well.

Both Ground Flaxseeds and Chia Seeds are high in Alpha-lipoic acid or ALA, which is a naturally occurring compound that’s made in the body. It serves vital functions at the cellular level, such as energy production.

Basically I like to think of these 2 ingredients as a power source and I’ve been trying to incorporate them into at least one meal each day. And what better to incorporate them in but delicious and healthy muffins?!
