Gluten Free Protein Muffins!

I love having easy foods available for quick, a nutritious meal or snack. That’s why these protein muffins are the perfect choice to grab for a breakfast on-the-go or a mid-afternoon snack! I use Nuzest Vanilla protein when I am wanting to add protein for my gluten free baked goods. Not only is it gluten free, soy free, and dairy free, the ingredients are super clean and the taste is amazing! These muffins end up being gluten free-dairy free, soy free, corn free, and low sugar-but full of flavor!

Ingredients:

  • 1 3/4 cups gluten free flour (I used King Arthur)
  • 1/4 cup sugar or maple syrup
  • 1-2 scoops Nuzest Protein powder
  • dash of salt
  • 1 tbsp baking powder (Pamela’s is corn free also!)
  • 1 cup cashew milk (Elmhurst is my favorite!)
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil or butter ( I use Earth Balance -soy free)
  • 1 egg (To make vegan, sub flax egg or 1/2 cup of applesauce)
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • Any mix-ins you desire! I did blueberries and Enjoy Life dark chocolate chips (allergen free)

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 400F
  2. Mix dry (not mix-ins) and wet ingredients separately, then combine
  3. Add your desired mix-ins. If doing blueberries, I like to also add 1 tbsp lemon
  4. Spray cupcake tin and add in batter
  5. Cook for 15-20 minutes
  6. Enjoy!
