The 4th is around the corner, which means drinks are pouring, fireworks are blaring, and thousands of people are making subpar decisions motivated by Tito’s vodka and open bar. While you may regret some decisions in the morning, you won’t regret making these mighty mini protein muffins.
These are packed with rich cocoa giving it a decadent chocolate taste and is bite-sized, which means eating and drinking for you will be a breeze, no matter how tipsy you get. Now, doesn’t that sound like a win?
A few of the highlights of this recipe includes:
High in fiber
Pairs perfectly with Peanut Butter
Less than 45 calories per muffin, which means you can eat A LOT
Additionally, these muffins are what many protein muffins are not…
Dare I say Moist…
Although this recipe does incorporate lower-fat alternatives it doesn’t compromise when it comes to taste.
Don’t believe me, give it a try I Dare You.
To get that rich cocoa taste I highly recommend using the Ghirardelli as it’s the closest you’ll get to an unprocessed additive-free cocoa powder not filled with America’s laundry list of ingredients.
Tight budget, girl I got you, in the same boat, but this is one of the few ingredients I splurge on, but using a different brand won’t make a huge difference so either way they will taste amazing.
Mighty Mini Muffins
The perfect protein muffin to pair with your favorite Pb.
1/2 +0-2 TbspcupWaterThe water will range. I used 1/2 cup but a casein blend will be closer to 1/2 + 2 Tbsp
Preheat the oven to 350 and spray a mini-muffin tin with non-stick spray.
Sift all dry ingredients and mix in a large bowl and set aside
Melt the peanut butter and yogurt butter together for 20-30 seconds in a medium-sized microwave-safe bowl.
Add the rest of the wet in ingredients, except for the water, and mix together.
Add the wet to the dry. When doing this mix it all thoroughly and slowly add in the water as you go 2 Tbsp's at a time. The amount of water will vary on the type of protein you use so I would be cautious.
Fill the muffin tin 2/3-3/4 full and bake for 8-12 minutes. Let cool after 10 minutes. Pair with your favorite peanut butter and enjoy Darling, you've won the day & you've earned it!
