Well, we are trying to get the protein in where we can, so today, instead of shakes or bars, we try muffins.  The taste and consistency totally depend upon the quality of the protein powder you decide to use.  The recipe here comes from our friends at Eat Yourself Skinny.  We really liked these a lot.  Enjoy!

 

2 1/2 cups protein powder

1 1/2 cups eggs whites

3 Tbsp almond flour

2 Tbsp ground flaxseed

3 Tbsp unsweetened almond milk

2 Tbsp water

1 mashed banana

1/4 cup organic (no sugar added) applesauce

2 Tbsp coconut oil (melted)

1 tsp. vanilla extract

1 1/2 Tbsp cinnamon

3 tsp. baking powder

Pinch of sea salt

1/2 cup blueberries

 

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  In a large bowl, mash banana with almond milk until smooth.  Add in the rest of the ingredients up to the blueberries and mix well.  Gently fold in your blueberries. Spoon mixture into a muffin tin sprayed with coconut oil and fill close to the top.  Bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.  Sprinkle powdered stevia on top and enjoy!
