Coconut Protein Muffins

22 Sep

On Thursday I was doing some food prep for my three shifts this weekend and made some delicious coconut mini-muffins. Based mainly off the Jamie Eason Coconut Cupcakes but without frosting and a few recipe changes.

Here’s what my final recipe looked like:

  • 1 and 1/2 C flour blend (1/2 C Coconut flour, 1/2 C Almond flour, 1/2 C whole grain GF flour)
  • 2 scoops (servings) vanilla whey protein
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 cup Coconut palm brown sugar
  • 4 oz. apple baby food
  • 6 oz. Greek yogurt
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1 cup unsweetened coconut milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  1. Preheat oven to 375
  2. Spray mini-muffin pan with non-stick spray
  3. In a large bowl, combine all dry ingredients
  4. In a separate bowl combine yogurt, vanilla, baby food, coconut milk, and vanilla extract. Then add wet ingredients into dry and mix well
  5. Fill muffin tins, bake approx. 18-20 minutes

I was surprised by how much I like them! Make sure to store in the fridge and you can just heat them in the microwave when you’re ready to enjoy.

      an unsweetened apple sauce would work too but yep I bake with baby food pretty regularly.
