Get Ready to #BakeFit with Fit Body Bakery and Spiced Pumpkin Motivator Muffins

I received a couple of Fit Body Bakery gluten free mixes to facilitate this review. All opinions and recipe are my own.

Spiced Pumpkin Motivator Muffins Title ImageThere isn’t a season that isn’t right for baking but fall and baking seem practically synonymous.  There’s something about delicious smells that fill my home when I walk in from a crips autumn day that is nothing short of magical. It brings instant comfort and has an uncanny way of dissipating any greys that may be lingering….

I grew up baking with mom and both of my grandmas and baking fills me with the most delicious sense of home… comfort… love… joy!

I love to bake all sorts of things from decadent cakes to scrumptious holiday cookies and more recently, all sorts of healthy snacks and vegan creations.

Most of the time I bake from scratch. That’s the way I learned and I love being able to carefully select my ingredients. But as a busy mom I am happy when I can save a little time.  That’s why I was excited to be invited to review a couple of baking mixes from FitBodyBakery through my SweatPink community.

The story behind Fit Body Bakery is one I love! Samara Donald, a mom, sister, wife, and athlete with a full time office job, is passionate about helping people get back in the kitchen and making their own food.   She volunteers with a community program teaching nutritional cooking.   As a fitness competitor and coach, she wanted a way to put more nutrition into her yummy baked treats, so through many years of creative recipe crafting and taste testing, she developed the Fit Body Bakery line to support a strong, healthy, active body.   Samara is so happy to be able to share these recipes with you in the form of convenient baking mixes. Now we can all #BakeFit! I was inspired to make an autumn version of the motivator muffins using my homemade spiced pumpkin butter and glazed maple ginger pecans.  If you don’t have any spiced pumpkin butter on hand you can use a simple pumpkin purée and add a generous amount of ginger and cinnamon for bold flavor.

How to make Maple Ginger Glazed Pecans:

Heat a medium skillet, preferably an iron skillet, over medium high heat. Add two tablespoons of maple syrup. As soon as maple syrup bubbles add 1 cup pecans, a generous sprinkle of cinnamon and about  tablespoon of fresh grated ginger.  Toss pecans in syrup and spices until well coated and slightly brown. Remove from heat and set aside. Here’s my scrumptious spiced pumpkin motivator muffin recipe.

Making the Spiced Pumpkin Motivator Muffins

Assemble your ingredients and preheat oven to 350. Fit Body Bakery Motivator Muffin Mix and Other ingredients Here’s what you will need: 1 1/2 cup spiced pumpkin butter 1 cup almond milk (or milk of choice) 4 egg whites (1/3 cup liquid egg whites) 1 cup maple ginger glazed pecans (divided 2/3 + 1/3) 1 box Fit Body Bakery Motivator Muffin Mix 1 inch fresh ginger, grated  1/2 tbsp cinnamon (optional)  Coconut oil for muffin tins      CU pouring almond milk in to bowl Pour almond milk into mixing bowl Adding Pumpkin purée to mixing bowl Add spiced pumpkin butter or pumpkin purée and egg whites. Mix well. Pouring Motivator Muffin Mix into bowl Pour Motivator Muffin Mix into bowl and mix until combined. It’s okay if you have a few lumps.

Place in the oven and bake for 20 minutes at 350 until cooked through and muffins turn a lovely golden hue:-)  Spiced Motivator Muffins out of oven Remove from oven and try to resist the temptation to gobble up a hot muffin right then and there. Spiced Motivator Muffin on baking rack Allow to cool on rack for a few minutes before indulging in that first scrumptious bite! Spiced Motivator Muffins on plate I had planned on sharing these scrumptious little morsels with my workout buddy but my family gobbled them up before I had a chance to sneak a few away.  They found them to be delicious! I was able to sample one or two and am very happy with them as well.

I am thrilled that I could not taste the stevia which is the one ingredient that had made me frown when I read the list of ingredients.  The list itself is short and easy to read.

So Fit Body Bakery gets two thumbs up from me 🙂

  1. Robin (Masshole Mommy) says:

    Mmmmm! I bet those are SOO good right out of the oven. They sound phenomenal.

  2. It’s wonderful we can still have our favorite baked goods while staying on track. Those muffins look and sound amazing.

  3. My mouth literally just watered. Those look absolutely amazing!

  4. I think my husband would LOVE these!! He’s been looking for yummy, on-the-go snacks. But, he’s allergic to Stevia, so I’m not sure I’d buy them for that reason.

    • Oh what a shame about your hubby’s allergy to Stevia Sara! I’m not a huge fan of stevia and frankly, hate that it is the go to sweetener in most healthy food products from protein powders to baked goods…. I can pic up the taste out of 99% of them and it usually ruins it for me. That’s why I was surprised by these mixes because I could not taste the Stevia at all.

  5. I love the story behind this line! I have a major sweet tooth so I’m excited about these!

    • I’m with you Shell, I LOVE the story. It’s amazing when a mom follows her heart and passion and can bring us something like these Fit Body Bakery mixes that take the guilt away from enjoying those sweet little nothings once in a while 🙂

  6. Those sound really good! I love all the flavors in them and perfect for fall.

  7. Those look really good! I’m totally caught up in the pumpkin craze going on right now!

  8. These sound rather tasty and I’m not big on pumpkin. I’d love to give this Fit Body brand a try as well.

  9. alicia szemon says:

    they look so good! i have never heard of these before

  10. I love anything with pumpkin spice, this looks great.

    the muffins look yummy and good for you too.
