Use these amazing flour less, blender muffins to cheat clean while eating these Paleo Chocolate Chocolate, peanut butter -scotch mini muffins. This paleo dessert is free of refined sugars, flour and oil. If you want to keep it Paleo, use the vegan chocolate chips from enjoy life (1/2 a cup) and omit the butterscotch chips.

Directions for Mini Muffin Paleo Desserts
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Mix the egg, banana, peanut butter, honey, vanilla, and baking soda in a blender. You could also combine these using a food processor or bullet.

(makes 17 servings) Fitness Tips: When’s the best time to eat carbs and dessert based foods (if you’re going to have them)? Eat them within 45 minutes of your workout routine. Preferably before your weight training routine. The sugars, and carbs from the foods you’re eating will go directly from your blood stream into your muscles. Of course, I’m not talking about eating a 100 grams of carbs in one sitting then going to lift. This is pertaining to moderate amounts of carbs such as 30 – 50. Unless you are a HEAVY lifter ( which most people aren’t). You will notice that these muffins are light, fluffy, and moist. Without the flour, they are actually better! They don’t sit in you stomach like a gut bomb, they are super easy to make, and they are cheap!
