One of our awesome Pure Food customers Traci shared this Pure Food protein muffins recipe with me and it was too good not to share.
Traci hails from Naw’lens, Lousiana (I bet people from New Orleans get annoyed with that real quick). She says she whipped up these healthy muffins as a cleaner, healthier alternative to beignets.
I made a few modifications with the ingredients I had on hand that I noted below (I still included the original recipe though).
Best part is, this high protein muffin recipe is nutritious. It’s low in sugar, high in fiber, and is soy, dairy, and gluten free … pretty awesome!
Here’s the ingredients and instructions:
Pure Food High Protein Muffins Recipe Ingredients
1 scoop of Pure Food Vanilla Protein Powder (note: I added 2 scoops)
2 cups of old fashioned oatmeal
1/2 cup of egg whites
2 Tablespoons of hemp seeds
2 Tablespoons of chia seeds
2 Tablespoons of unsweetened coconut flakes
1 Tablespoons of light agave (note: I used organic coconut sugar)
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract (note: I used whole vanilla bean powder)
A pinch of pink Himalayan salt (note: I used plain sea salt)
How to Make the Muffins
- Mash one banana in a large bowl. Add one scoop of Pure Food Protein powder Vanilla. Stir.
- Add Agave (or coconut sugar), Vanilla, Hemp seeds, Chia seeds, and Coconut. Stir.
- Add two cups of oatmeal. Stir.
- Add egg whites to form a solid dough. Stir.
- Sprinkle sea salt.
- Take muffin pan. Spray with coconut oil. Create little muffins by rolling dough in your palms. Drop in muffin pan. Bake 8-10 minutes at 380 degrees. (note: I added about 5 minutes of cooking time since my muffins were larger. If you do 8 smaller ones stick with 8-10 minutes and see if they’re done).**
Keep refrigerated after baked.
If you want them heated, heat them in microwave for 3 minutes at 20% power.
**I made 4 large muffins and ate one as a post-workout snack. As you’ll see below, if you go that route you get a solid 345 calories, 10 grams of fiber, and 19 grams of protein!
