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 (use code PEACEOFGFCAKE for 15% off). 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!


  • 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)


  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!
