Protein Muffins

To customize your Protein Muffins and add some extra flavor and texture, you can mix in a variety of ingredients. Here are some delicious options:
Chocolate Chips: Add a handful of semi-sweet or dark chocolate chips for a sweet, indulgent twist.
Blueberries: Fresh or frozen blueberries can provide a burst of juicy sweetness.
Nuts: Chopped almonds, walnuts, or pecans add a delightful crunch and extra protein.
Dried Fruit: Dried cranberries, raisins, or chopped apricots bring a chewy texture and natural sweetness.
Coconut Flakes: Unsweetened shredded coconut adds a tropical flair.
Seeds: Chia seeds or flaxseeds can boost the nutritional value with extra fiber and omega-3 fatty acids.
Spices: A pinch of nutmeg or cardamom can complement the cinnamon and enhance the flavor profile.
Zest: Lemon or orange zest can add a refreshing citrus note.

  • 122 gram Non Fat Greek Yogurt
  • 60 ml/gram Water
  • 66 gram Egg white (2 egg whites)
  • 5 gram Oil Grams
  • 40 gram No Sugar Added Applesauce
  • 2 gram Vanilla extract (0.5 teaspoon)
  • 10 gram Apple or white cider vinegar (2 teaspoons)


  • 80 gram All Purpose Flour
  • 62 gram Protein Powder I use Vanilla flavored ones
  • 10 gram Sugar optional, depends on the sweetness of your protein powder
  • 0.5 teaspoon Cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon Baking powder
  • 0.5 teaspoon Baking soda
  • 0.25 teaspoon Salt


  • Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C).
  • Line a muffin pan with muffin liners.
  • In a bowl, combine all wet ingredients (Greek yogurt, water, egg white, oil, applesauce, vanilla extract, and vinegar) and mix until well blended.
  • In a separate bowl, combine all dry ingredients (flour, protein powder, sugar, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda, and salt). Sift the flour to remove any lumps.
  • Create a well in the center of the dry ingredients and pour in the wet mixture.
  • Gently fold the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients until just combined. Avoid overmixing; it’s okay if the batter has a few lumps.
  • Pour the batter into the lined muffin pan.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 17-20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  • Allow the muffins to cool slightly before removing them from the pan.
