MIND POWER BANANA MUFFINS



Contributor: Vivian Zaret

"With this recipe, you’re enjoying your sweet treats while targeting brain cognitive function with Lion's Mane and helping to balance your cortisol levels with Mucuna Pruriens uplifting blissful effects."

Vivian Zaret has created these beautiful banana muffins, leaving out ingredients that can leave you feeling lethargic and adding Sun Potion magic to help you feel your best!

I’m always trying to reinvent a healthy version of my old fashioned favorite sweet and savory treats. 

With that being said, I often found myself buying into pre-made treats at the store and being disappointed with how I felt afterwards, not only physically from digestion issues but also mentally foggy, lethargic and just not myself. 

It’s hard to find healthy alternatives. If you find a product close to it and think you’re winning with that, I usually find there’s something else in it that they added that was unnecessary. 

So now what? Am I suppose to give up my favorite guilty pleasures because I don’t want to sacrifice my mental and physical health?! 

No! So I figured out what I like and I’ve gone back to nature's source and recreated the version with out all of the weird stuff! AND I’ve been able to elevate these recipes even further by using Sun Potion's adaptogenic powders that not only get incorporated into your daily routine for added health benefits, but also add a nice nuttiness and fluffy texture to the mix. With this recipe, you’re enjoying your sweet treats while targeting brain cognitive function with Lion's Mane and helping to balance your cortisol levels with Mucuna Pruriens uplifting blissful effects. How does that sound for a guilt-free, stress-free brain boosting snack?! I also add Sun Potion Tocos to everything because it really does add the perfect smooth texture to drinks, dressings and baked goods, while getting a beauty boost from the high Vitamin E property Tocos contains.

Here’s how to make your Mindful (Lion's Mane) Medicinal (Mucuna Pruriens) Banana Muffins!

Medicinal Mind Power Banana Muffins

 Ingredients

1 box of Swerve Sweets Vanilla Cake Mix

1 banana 

2 eggs

1 tbsp. vanilla extract

1/3 cup water

1/3 cup (melted) butter or coconut oil 

1 tsp. cinnamon

3 tbsp. Sun Potion Tocos 

2 tsp. Sun Potion Mucuna Pruriens

2 tsp. Sun Potion Lion's Mane

 

Method

Preheat oven to 350° F

In a bowl add mashed banana, eggs, vanilla extract, water and butter >> whisk.  

To same bowl, add Sun Potion Lion's Mane, Sun Potion Mucuna Pruriens, Sun Potion Tocos and Swerve Sweets Vanilla Cake Mix >> whisk.

Line cupcake/muffin tin with muffin liners (parchment paper).

This recipe can make 6-12 muffins depending on how large you want them (6 jumbo or 12 smaller).

Scoop mix into your muffin tin.

Top with a sliced banana if you like bananas and salt to tops of muffins before popping in oven.

Bake for 25 mins (until tops are slightly golden).

***Important tip 

Turn off oven, let sit in oven to cool to ensure middle is cooked and doesn’t crumble since these are gluten free!

Serve room temp & enjoy!
