Apple Pie Protein Muffins

Apple Pie Protein Muffins

Ingredients

¾ cup (90g) self-rising flour*

1 ½ scoops (50g) BPN Vanilla Whey Protein Powder

½ tsp. Cinnamon

½ tsp. Apple pie spice

¼ tsp. Baking powder (add an extra ¾ tsp if NOT using self-rising flour)

1 whole egg

2 cups (425g) no sugar added apple pie filling

½ cup (13g) unsweetened applesauce 

1 tsp. Vanilla extract

Crumble Topping

½ cup (40g) oats (quick or old fashioned)

2 tbsp. Flour

¼ cup (60g) brown sugar substitute (Swerve)**

1 tbsp. Light butter


Notes

*If using regular all purpose flour, add ¾ tsp baking powder and ¼ tsp salt. 

**Swerve is a sugar substitute that has no glycemic effect. It can be found in the baking aisle, but if you can’t find it you can use regular brown sugar. 


Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350F. Add dry ingredients (flour, protein powder, cinnamon, apple pie spice, and baking powder) to a large bowl. Mix. 
  2. In a separate bowl whisk together egg, apple pie filling, applesauce, and vanilla extract. Combine wet and dry ingredients. Gently fold together until incorporated. 
  3. Spray a muffin pan with nonstick spray. Scoop batter into 8 spots in the muffin tin. 
  4. In a separate bowl, mix together crumble ingredients. Top each muffin with about 1-2 tbsp of the crumble topping. 
  5. Bake at 350F for about 15-18 minutes or until a knife comes out clean. Let cool and enjoy!
