Hearty Maple Walnut Muffins

September 15th, 2011

Ohhh yum! Another great HEALTHY protein muffin recipe! These are hearty Maple Walnut Muffins with cinnamon and raisins in them too! (Add-ins optional of course!) They have healthy fat, slow digesting carbohydrates AND protein in them making them a great complete snack or breakfast. When they are baking your house will fill up with the sweet aroma of Maple! YUM!

Since I am pregnant I use all organic and natural ingredients-meaning no artificial sweeteners (which you shouldn’t be using ANYWAY).

Here’s the recipe and I hope you enjoy these as much as we do!

Ingredients:

1 Cup of Apple Sauce

1 1/4 Cup Egg Whites

1 Whole Egg

1 Tbsp Maple Agave

1 Tsp Maple Extract

½ Cup Quick Oats

¼ Cup Ground Flaxseed

¼ Cup Almond Meal

½ Cup Healthy Flour (I use ¼ Buckwheat Flour and ¼ Cup Brown Rice Flour)

¾ Cup Vanilla or Plain Protein Powder

¼ Cup Chopped Walnuts

½ Cup Raisins

2 Tbsp Cinnamon

2 Tsp Baking Powder

12 Jumbo Foil Muffin Tray Liners

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350*.

Place foil liners in muffin tray.

Mix wet ingredients together and dry ingredients separately. Mix the 2 together.

Add in walnuts and raisins and mix well.

Spoon equal amount in each muffin tin and bake for approximately 28 minutes.

Check with a toothpick and make sure tops of muffins are cooked before removing from the oven.

Let cool for 15 minutes then peel off liners and place on a cooing rack.

Eat fresh or freeze. Either way, store in the refrigerator to keep freshness!
