Can you burn fat & build muscle while eating muffins?! You can with these protein muffin recipes.
I made these 4 Unbelievable Protein Muffin Recipes using Flapjacked Mighty Muffin mix, a little creativity and some suggestions from some of my followers on Instagram. Each muffin has 20+ grams of protein, less than 30 grams of carbs, and less than 10 grams of fat. A regular muffin has closer to 15 grams of fat, 35+ grams of carbohydrates and about 3 grams of protein. Try these out instead:
1) Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Muffin
Add about 1/4 cup of water to the Double Chocolate Mighty Muffin mix and microwave for 45 seconds on high. Once cooked, use your spoon to dig a small hole in the middle of the muffin. Add 1 tbsp. of peanut butter to the center and make a melted peanut butter core!
2) Molten S’mores Sundae Muffin
Add about 1/4 cup of water to the S’mores Mighty Muffin mix and microwave for 45 seconds on high. Once cooked, add 1 tbsp. of reduced fat frozen vanilla froyo on top to make a molten S’mores Sundae.
3) Apple Turnover Muffin
Add about 1/4 cup of water to the Apple Cinnamon Mighty Muffin mix and microwave for 45 seconds on high. Sprinkle 1 tsp. of brown sugar on top and add 1 tbsp. of diced apples to make a delicious Apple Turnover High Protein Muffin.
4) Maple Pumpkin Muffin
Add about 1/4 cup of water to the Maple Pumpkin Mighty Muffin mix (my personal favorite) and microwave for 45 seconds on high. Add crushed pecans and a drizzle of lite maple syrup on top for an classic Autumn breakfast (or dessert) and an unbelievably healthy and delicious high protein muffin.
My friends at Flapjacked sent me these samples after I won their Instagram giveaway and their strategy definitely worked because I will be a customer. I’m not sure it possibly gets much better than high protein muffins in under 60 seconds. Check out their pancake mix also. My favorite is the carrot spice mix. I’ll have a recipe up for Carrot Cake Pancakes soon, make sure you subscribe to my newsletter so you get it directly to your inbox!
