Before you go to your local baker or corner grocery store to pick up some muffins, try these wholesome ones out. They’re not like the others, because they’re high protein and low in carbs. Let’s take a deep dive into why these Chocolate Berry Protein Muffins are the perfectly healthy breakfast or snack:
- They’ve got protein, and a lot of it. Almond flour, the base of these muffins, is high in protein. But that’s not all. Thanks to Progressive’s Grass Fed Whey Protein powder, there is an added protein boost. It features 100% New Zealand protein, which is the cleanest source of protein since it has no growth hormones and is pasture raised.
- They’re low in Not that carbs are bad; in fact, they’re a great source of energy. But traditional muffins have too much, which can lead to energy crashes. These muffins are perfectly sweetened by maple syrup which doesn’t surge blood sugar levels like regular sugar does.
Here’s what you need to make 10 - 12 muffins:
- 1 cup almond milk
- 1/3 cup maple syrup
- 2 eggs
- 1 1/2 cups almond flour
- 1/4 cup cocoa powder
- 1 scoop Progressive’s Natural Grass Fed Whey Protein Powder - Chocolate
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 cup frozen and thawed or fresh mixed berries
- Preheat oven to 350°F and line or grease a muffin tray.
- Add all ingredients, except for the berries, to a large bowl and mix until smooth.
- Fold in the berries until combined.
- Distribute the batter evenly to the muffin tin.
- Bake muffins for 20-30 minutes.
