Energy Muffins

This is a recipe from the P90X nutrition guide.  They are great as a pre or post workout treat or a quick breakfast.  I like 'em (as do the kids).

3/4 cup pear nectar
2 egg whites
2 tbsp veg oil (or applesauce)
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 tsp lemon zest
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup flour (don't see why you can't use all wheat flour)
2/3 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup low fat granola
1 tbsp baking powder
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp salt
1 to 2 pears chopped into small pieces

Heat oven to 350.  Combine first 5 ingredients in a bowl and stir.  Combine flours and sugar in another bowl.  Add granola, baking powder, nutmeg & salt.  Combine.  Add pear and toss until coated.

Add egg mixture to flour mixture until blended into a thick batter.

Spoon into 10 - 12 muffin cups.  I used 10 because I wanted some big muffins!

Bake for about 20 minutes or until done.

My picture is a little blurry, but these are quite yummy and moist.  The granola adds a nice crunch every once in a while.  Would love to hear what you think if you try them out.

Keep moving!
