I am always looking for a good snack option that doesn’t feel too healthy and can curb my afternoon sugar/carb/junk food cravings. These definitely do the trick!
These turned out so much better than I expected. I have tried making higher protein baked goods in the past but they have always been major fails. I think the key was the protein pancake mix. They turned out soft and moist and don’t have that overly fake flavor to them. If you don’t eat the muffins right away I recommend popping them in the microwave for a few seconds if you can before eating them.
They even look like “real” muffins. Also, they would probably be even tastier with some almond butter sandwiched in between them!
Recipe: Makes 8 muffins
1/2 Cup About Time Protein Pancake Mix- Cinnamon Spice ( I ordered this on Groupon)
***If you don’t have protein pancake mix I would recommend mixing a scoop of your favorite protein powder with equal parts almond and coconut flour.***
1/2 Cup Water
2 Tbsp. PB2
6 Tbsp. Egg Whites
Preheat over to 350 degrees and line 8 muffin tins. Combine all ingredients in a bowl.
Let mix stand 3 minutes.
Scoop mix into muffin tins about 1/2 to 3/4 full.
Bake for 25 mins.
Store in the refrigerator in a Ziploc bag and keep muffins in the liner until you eat them to keep fresh and soft.
This is a rough calculation of the nutritional value.
