This morning I am really feeling my workouts from the week so far, so I did about an hour of yoga to try to stretch out some of the soreness I’m feeling. After that, I had an amazing breakfast of eggs and raspberry muffins with a protein glaze!
These muffins are amazing.
Here’s why: they are whole grain, no oil, no butter, low sugar, AND low calorie. But they taste awesome! Adapted from this recipe.
And can you believe they’re only about 75 calories a piece, including the glaze?!
- 1 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 3/4 cup sugar and truvia blend
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1/2 cup almond milk
- 3/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
- slightly over 1/2 cup plain greek yogurt
- 1 egg
- 2 tsp vanilla
- 2 cups fresh raspberries
- glaze: vanilla protein powder, truvia, and almond milk
Preheat oven to 350. Mix flour, sugar and truvia blend, cinnamon, and baking powder in a large bowl. In a separate bowl, mix egg, vanilla, yogurt, and applesauce. Pour wet ingredients into dry ingredients and stir, then add in almond milk and stir again. You may need to add more almond milk depending on how wet the batter is. Then fold in raspberries, and fill lined muffin cups to the top (they don’t rise very much). Bake for 14-16 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. This recipe made 20 muffins for me! For the glaze, simply mix about a teaspoon of vanilla protein powder with a pinch of truvia and a few drops of almond milk until it has a glaze consistency, and pour onto a warm muffin!
I honestly could have eaten about 4 of these, they were so good! Make these now, and you will not be disappointed!! 🙂
