- 1 cup unsweetened vanilla Almond Breeze almond milk
- 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
- 1 cup gluten-free oat flour
- ¼ cup almond meal/flour
- ¼ cup vanilla protein powder
- ¼ cup natural cane sugar
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- ½ teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- ⅓ cup greek yogurt
- 3 Tablespoons egg whites
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 cup frozen wild blueberries (or fresh berries)
- 1 Tablespoon almond slices
- 1 Tablespoon natural cane sugar
- 1 Tablespoon oat flour
- Preheat the oven to 425° F.
- Spray a muffin tin with non-stick cooking spray (I use coconut oil spray), or use paper liners.
- Make topping by mixing together almond slices, sugar and oat flour, set aside
- Combine the almond milk and apple cider vinegar in a glass mixing bowl, whisk and set aside.
- Combine all the dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Create a well in the middle of the bowl.
- Add the greek yogurt, egg whites and vanilla into the bowl with the almond milk. Stir to combine.
- Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir just until combined. Fold in the blueberries.
- Fill each well of the muffin tin ⅔ full. Sprinkle topping mixture over each muffin.
- Bake 5 minutes at 425°, while muffins are still in the oven turn the temperature down to 375° and continue baking 15 more minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.
- Allow to cool before removing from tin and serving. Refrigerate leftovers in a covered container for up to one week. Eat cold or reheat in the toaster over before serving.
*Feel free to use whatever brand of protein powder you have on hand. I used Sunwarrior.
*If you want to keep the recipe dairy-free, you can use dairy-free coconut or almond yogurt.
*If you don’t have oat flour, you can make your own by grinding rolled oats in a food processor or blender. Whole wheat flour will also work if you’re not gluten-free.
