Protein Coconut Cashew Muffins

Posted Oct 31 2012 5:52am

Looking for a high protein breakfast or snack that comes in a sweet little package?

I felt like experimenting more with coconut flour this week since it’s such a great high fibre baking ingredient.

I decided to make some protein muffins to help recover after a workout, or to enjoy as a mid-day brain boosting snack.  These muffins are packed with protein from eggs as well as a big scoop of protein powder.

The good news?  They taste much more indulgent than a protein bar and so far have pleased some tough critics.
