Strawberry Apple Protein Muffins

Strawberry season is here! I love strawberries and when I can make them in a delicious muffin, I like them even more!





Here is view of what the inside looked like. So delicious!








Ingredients

  • 2 c. oat flour
  • 1/2 c. almond milk
  • 1/2 c. egg whites
  • 1 1/2 scoops protein powder (I used vanilla flavor)
  • 8 oz. apple baby food (or you could use unsweetened apple sauce!)
  • 1/4 c. xylitol
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 1/2 c. chopped strawberries (1 c. is what I added to the initial batter, I added about 1/2 c. more later)


Directions
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
2. Mix ingredients well. If you want to ensure your strawberries are distributed evenly, you can pour the batter first (without the strawberries) into the cupcake tin then add the berries yourself.
3. Let bake for about 10 minutes then sprinkle in some more chopped strawberries. (Clearly I really like strawberries!)
4. Let muffins cook for 10 more minutes for a total baking time of 20 minutes.

*Sidenote - I'd personally try and chop the strawberries a little smaller next time I make these but others preferred the larger "garnish" looking strawberries on top. It's really up to you!


Makes about 14 muffins.


Remember, clean eats tend to have a short shelf life! If you don't plan on using them within about 2 days I'd definitely recommend moving them to the fridge or freezer. You can always reheat them!
