These make-ahead protein muffins are the perfect grab-and-go breakfast and they taste amazing. They're one of the brand new recipes from Cycle 2 of my 90 Day Plan. They're also in my new Veggie 90 Day Plan.
Makes 6 servings
250g plain flour
11/2 tsp baking powder
11/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
Pinch of salt
40g ground flaxseed
150g vanilla protein powder
50g coconut oil, melted
200ml reduced-fat soured cream
200g banana (roughly 2 medium bananas), peeled
2 large eggs, beaten
150g blueberries, fresh or frozen
Preheat the oven to 180ºC. Sift the flour, baking powder, bicarbonate of soda and salt into a large bowl, stir in the flaxseed and make a well in the middle.
Put the remaining ingredients (except the blueberries) into a liquidiser and blend until smooth. Pour into the dry ingredients and fold together until smooth.
Fold in the blueberries then divide the mixture between a 12-hole muffin tin lined with paper cases. Bake for 20-25 minutes until risen and golden then remove from the oven and leave to cool.
This recipe makes 12 muffins. Aim to eat 2 muffins as one meal.
If you plan on freezing the muffins, remove the paper case then wrap individually in clingfilm before freezing.
This recipe might make more or less than 12 muffins depending on your portions and size of your muffin tin. To calculate one serving, divide the total amount by 6.
