WIAW – Banana Nut Muffin Protein Bites!

WIAW – Banana Nut Muffin Protein Bites!

Good morning! Guess what!?!

I’ve got another yummy recipe for you today!  Two in one week is crazy for me right??? I’m sure your not complaining too much based on yesterdays response to those pancakes 🙂

Plantain Pancakes with Chia Berry Compote

Thank you by the way!  Hope you all make them and enjoy them as much as we did!  I’ll get to that recipe in just a minute but first let me thank the WIAW hostess for throwing another lovely shin dig.

Peas and Crayons

Thanks Jenn!

Now, let’s get started on my eats from yesterday shall we?

We were running a bit late yesterday morning as The Love Nugget woke slept in a bit and I lost track of time.  So after making his breakfast I didn’t have much time left to make mine but luckily had a few hard boiled eggs and Canadian bacon on hand to scarf down before running out the door to Crossfit.

That along with a cup of coffee and a plum.

Again since I was late I didn’t have time to grab my sweet potatoes so after Crossfit I drank an About Time Protein packet mixed with coconut water.

Replenishing some lost electrolytes and protein! While The Love Nugget and I ran some errands, we shared a large, organic Fuji apple.


Love those things! A while later is was home for lunch which for me was some turkey breast and avocado wrapped in a Paleo Coconut Wrap along with some leftover Paleo Potato salad.  Recipe to come on this one as well!

I ate another plum after lunch because we have a million of them right now!

We recently had a landscaper come clean up our backyard which was literally a jungle.  We discovered we have a very large plum tree with LOTS of plums.  So The Love Nugget and I picked a bunch yesterday.

Don’t mind my pantless child.  That seems to be the trend around here lately.  Pants optional! At least for him 🙂

A few hours later I enjoyed a few of these bad boys.

Last night was The Love Nugget’s first T-Ball practice.


He was so excited to go play baseball and even more excited since two of his buddies are on his team too!


It’s just the basics at this age.  Catching, throwing, etc. but it’s so cute to watch!


We came home and I finished up dinner which was Against All Grain’s Thai Crunch Salad.


Light, refreshing, and delicious!

We also enjoyed copious amounts of watermelon because that what you do during the summer right!?!

  1. Oh my gosh, I love fresh plums right off the tree! They’re so amazing! And these bites look fantastic! I definitely need to check out that protein powder.

  2. That breakfast looks amazing!!! What brand of Canadian bacon is that?

    • Giselle Schroer says:

      It’s an uncured one from Costco with no nitrates but it does have a little sugar. So not 100% paleo but pretty close 🙂 Plus, it’s good!

  3. Banana protein powder?!?! I must get this pronto! The bites look ahhmazing. What a yummy day of eats!

  4. Those muffins look amazing!! Can’t wait to make them ASAP. Thank you!!

  5. Wow look at those plums!!! Gorgeous! And that banana nut protein bites look adorably delicious 🙂
