These moist strawberry protein muffins are studded with fresh strawberries and chocolate chips. Made with oat flour and protein powder so they have an extra protein boost and they’re gluten-free!
Last weekend I bought two containers of strawberries from the farmers market. I was only going to get one, but Isaac convinced me to get two, which is fine because I love fresh berries. They’re the perfect snack and also great as a topping for things like yogurt, salads, cereal, oatmeal, cottage cheese… the list goes on.
All that said, I still felt like we had too many strawberries for two people to eat in one week so I decided I needed to bake something with them. That something turned out to be these strawberry protein muffins.
I actually made two batches on Friday night when I was testing the recipe — one with chocolate chips and one without. Isaac says the chocolate chips make the muffins so naturally that’s the version I’m sharing with you!
To amp up the protein content of these muffins we’re using a blend of oat flour, protein powder and egg whites. Honestly, I think it’s a winning combo because these muffins might be the best protein baked good I’ve ever made. I feel like some protein baked goods have a strange texture, but not these muffins — they’re light, fluffy and moist. Plus, you can’t taste the protein powder at all and the strawberries and chocolate chips add the perfect amount of sweetness.
Stevia Sweetened Muffins
I wanted to make the muffins without sugar (besides the berries and chocolate chips) so I used a stevia blend for sweetener. If you don’t have a stevia baking blend you can always use packets of stevia or another sweetener of choice. As for the oat flour, you can make your own by processing raw oats or just buy it. I like Bob’s Red Mill oat flour.
