These are my FAVORITE pre- or post- practice/game snack! I LOVE making these muffins because they give me the opportunity of making a yummy, baked “treat” that is full of things that are good for them! My son’s hockey team LOVES these muffins and they ask for them all the time!
With post-practice/game snacks, you want to consider the composition of the food and the fact that the pre (or post) game snack should have a carb:protein ratio of about 4:1. These have the perfect ratio! I make banana, pumpkin, and blueberry muffins with this recipe. I’ve added zucchini to them. I like my teams to have these when we have less that 2 hours between games and don’t have time to eat a larger meal. I encourage you to experiment and create your own masterpieces!
