Welcome to the first installment of the SWYPO* Series. These fluffy, light and moist muffins will have you scratching your head in disbelief. How can they be SO airy with NO flour? How can they have such a delicate, sweet flavour with NO sugar or added sweeteners of any kind? With just a handful of wholesome ingredients, these muffins come together in one bowl. You can whip them up any time. Starbucks, step aside. There’s a new muffin game in town.
If you thought you hit the jackpot with my Double Chocolate Cheesecake Protein Muffins, just wait until you sink your teeth into the warm, soft sweetness of my latest creation: Cinnamon Roll Cheesecake Protein Muffins! Yet again, this is a muffin that is high in protein, low in carbohydrates, AND free of gluten, grains and refined sugar. This time, the star of the show is a Quest Nutrition Cinnamon Roll Protein Bar*. Let these muffins steal your heart.
I have reached muffin nirvana: chocolate and cream cheese pair up in a magical muffin that is high in protein, low in carbohydrates, AND free of gluten, grains and refined sugar. What happens when you take my favourite Quest bar flavour EVER and work it into a similarly high-protein, low-carbohydrate muffin? BOOM! There are no words. Just eat and enjoy.
These are NOT your everyday muffins. These “skinny” muffins are seriously sensational. At only 65 calories per muffin (and no, they’re not mini-muffins!) and super low in fat (dare I say “fat-free”?) but packed with protein, there is some serious macro magic happening in this healthy muffin recipe. Plus, they’re downright delicious, with rich, moist chocolate flavour and the added bonus of high-fiber, nutrient-rich zucchini. Oh, and they’re free of gluten, grains and refined sugar, too! Perhaps I should call them “Freedom Muffins”?
These scrumptious, moist muffins start with a better-for-you banana bread base featuring whole wheat flour, unrefined sugar and “super-fat” coconut oil and then add in chopped walnuts and decadent dark chocolate. The whole wheat flour gives them just a little bit more texture and the walnuts and coconut oil mean that they are unbelievably moist and packed with a generous serving of healthy fats to give you lasting energy and satisfaction. Sweet bananas counter with the sophistication of not-so-sweet dark chocolate chunks – just enough for a taste in each bite.
