Simple, high protein muffins

#1 Postby chrisjs » Fri Apr 02, 2010 10:29 am

Been briefly playing around with making some high protein, low carb muffins and here what I have so far.

Ingredients
1 cup soy flour
1 cup protein powder (I used a 70 pea/30 rice mix)
0.5 cup rolled oats
2 tsp baking powder
0.5 cup raisins
1 tsp sea salt
2 tsp cinnamon
0.5 cup Unsweetened applesauce
2 cups water

Prep
Mix dry ingredients together, then add wet ingredients and mix well. Don't need to follow "the muffin method" since there's no gluten.

Put into a 12 muffin pan and bake for 30 minutes at 350 F.

These are a little crumbly but hold together much better than earlier versions. Still working on them.

The protein powder I used was vanilla flavored and stevia sweetened, but not strongly. You may need to adjust flavors. If you've never worked with soy flour before be aware that it has a tangy metallic flavor when raw in the batter, but this completely goes away once cooked.

Stats
Per muffin: 96 calories: 2g fat, 12g carbs (2g fiber, 6g sugar), 9g protein

How do they taste? I might try these. That's a crazy good AA profile!

They taste pretty damn good, slight apple cinnamon flavor with some nice hits of sweetness from the raisins. Obviously not too sweet or strong of a flavor and aren't going to beat some triple-chocolate muffin as far as taste goes, but I'm very happy with them.

They passed the wife test, fwiw. :)

That blend of protein has an excellent amino profile and of course soy is extremely good as well.

Thanks for the recipe. Definitely going to try these! :)

Great. Keep in mind that different protein powders have different thicknesses, my mix was mostly gemma which I think helps the muffins stay together.

Oh yeah, definitely grease the muffin pan.

This is very similar to some muffins I tried making, though I think I had some wheat bran in there, and possibly some whole wheat pastry flour (though I can't quite remember if I'm thinking of the right recipe on that one).

I'll have to try these!

medman: I remember you posting a muffin recipe a while ago, but I couldn't find it by searching internally or through google. Is it still posted here somewhere?
