Berry Protein Muffins



by SALLY O'NEIL - the-fit-foodie.com

Sometimes I don’t feel like having an omelette after a workout. It’s not always easy *or palatable* to get your protein needs. After much testing *poor me* this muffin recipe gets the Fit Foodie tick of approval and is a great post-workout snack. Not dissimilar in taste to your typical cafe muffin, but this one is loaded with muscle-loving amino acids that help build and repair. Also known as super muffins. That’s right.

SERVES: 10

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1/2 cup rolled oats (gluten free or regular)

  • 1/2 cup vanilla (or unflavoured) protein powder

  • 2 tbsp coconut flour

  • 1 cup egg whites

  • 1 tbsp Natvia (granulated stevia)*

  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon

  • 1 tsp baking powder

  • 4 tbsp cottage cheese (banana would also work)

  • 1/2 cup frozen berries

*can sub honey, rice malt syrup, maple syrup or sweetener of choice

METHOD:

  • Preheat oven to 160ºC degrees

  • In a blender, add all the ingredients apart from the berries and blend until smooth.

  • Gently fold in your berries.

  • Spoon mixture into a muffin tin sprayed with coconut oil (or silicone muffin cases) and fill close to the top.

  • Bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.

  • Allow to cool then pop them out and enjoy!
