This is the first week of the new segment called Macro Snack Monday where I (Coach Zack) highlight a macro friendly snack that you can easily fit into your macros!
This week I’ll be highlighting the Flapjacked mighty muffin. I personally think these are one of the best snacks you can have especially if you crave something sweet during the day. They come in multiple flavors including: cinnamon roll, double chocolate, chocolate peanut butter, banana caramel, triple berry, blueberry, lemon poppyseed, cherry chocolate, s’mores, cinnamon apple, PB & J, maple pumpkin, and peanut butter. All of these flavors can be found on amazon but I’ve seen double chocolate, cinnamon apple, and s’mores at market street here in Lubbock. I would highly recommend double chocolate, peanut butter chocolate, and cinnamon roll. Those are my go to flavors. If you have a lot of calories left at the end of the day, eating a double chocolate mighty muffin with some chilly cow will never disappoint I promise you that and if you have even more calories, mixing in 20 g of peanut butter into a chocolate mighty muffin is really great as well.
Preparing the mighty muffin is very simple. It says on the package to mix with water but I would highly recommend using vanilla premier protein instead of water for a better taste and a little extra protein. I usually use between 2.0-2.3 fl oz of premier protein. After you mix it up, you put it in the microwave for 35 seconds and it’s good to know. The final product doesn’t look that great, but the taste speaks for itself. With how fast it is to make, it would also make a perfect breakfast for people who are always struggling to make breakfast in the morning.
The calories range from 220 (mixed with water) to about 250 (mixed with premier). The macros are pretty balanced on it as well which makes it a great snack. It passes the 1 g of protein per 10 calories test, so that means it can easily be fit into your macros. It has roughly 26g of protein, 6g of fat, and 24g of carbs (when using premier).
I think the taste varies with what flavor you pick (I don’t like s’mores or cinnamon apple) but overall I think they have a good texture and taste to them. Like I mentioned before, eating a mighty muffin and chilly cow is basically like eating cake and ice cream.... and it’s macro friendly! I would highly recommend if you had a sweet tooth!
That wraps up this weeks Macro Snack Monday. I can’t wait to bring y’all more information on a weekly basis!
