I got in a baking mood today and we had a ton of strawberries I needed to find something to do with so I whipped up a muffin recipe using very simple ingredients! These are very low carb and just the right amount of sweetness and I bet you have all of the ingredients in your kitchen right now! These are about 8 grams of protein per muffin so if you are going to eat for breakfast I suggest pairing it with another source of protein such as scrambled eggs or something. You could also do these as a little sweet treat or snack during the day since they are very low carb.
STRAWBERRY MUFFIN INGREDIENTS
- 1.5 cups almond meal
- 1 scoop vanilla protein powder
- 3 pastured eggs
- 1/4 cup maple syrup
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- Dash of cinnamon
- Dash of pink salt
- 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1 cup chopped strawberries (blueberries would work also)
- Coconut spray or olive oil cooking spray (without added propellant or preservatives)
Blend all ingredients well in high-speed blender or food processor. Stir in the berries at the end. Carefully scoop or pour batter into a lightly greased muffin pan – should make about 10 muffins. Bake for about 20 minutes at 350 degrees. Enjoy!
**If you don’t use or have protein powder, simply do 2 full cups of almond flour as substitute
