Spiced no sugar protein muffins


    If you aren't really a big fruit or nut fan, and are looking for something easy to stomach in the morning or pre/post workouts my protein muffins are the perfect combo to keep you going, feeling full and getting them grains. They still have a sweetness without the sugar and they are high in proteins too.

    Prep:10min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Ready in:30min 

    1. Preheat oven to 180 C / Gas 4. Line a muffin tray with paper cases.
    2. Combine both flours, baking powder, cinnamon and protein in a large mixing bowl.
    3. Add salt, almond extract, ginger and vanilla to the mix and stir.
    4. Add butter to the mixture and whisk on high with an electric mixer. Add the egg.
    5. The mixture will become very stiff, at this point add all the agave nectar and begin to pour the milk in equal intervals into the mix and whisk on high.
    6. Once everything is well combined it should run off the spoon at a slow/gooey pace. If the mixture seems too stiff, add more milk.
    7. Pour mixture evenly into 12 muffin cases and bake until a knife inserted in the muffins comes out clean, about 15 to 20 minutes.
    8. Leave to to cool and serve or packup for your next session.
