Ingredients

  • 1 cup oat flour
  • 1/4 cup vanilla protein powder
  • 1 Tablespoon lemon juice
  • Zest of ½ a lemon
  • 2 Tablespoons stevia baking blend or 6-8 packets of stevia
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • pinch sea salt
  • pinch cinnamon
  • 1 Tablespoon coconut oil liquid
  • 3/4 cup egg whites
  • 2 Tablespoons unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • ½ cup plain or vanilla non-fat Greek yogurt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ cup strawberries chopped into tiny pieces
  • 1/4 cup mini chocolate chips

Instructions

  • Preheat oven: Set over to 350°F.
  • Combine dry ingredients: Combine all dry ingredients together, except chocolate chips.
  • Add wet ingredients: Mix in all wet ingredients. Stir until smooth and blended, then lightly stir in strawberries and chocolate chips.
  • Prep pan: Line muffin tin with paper or silicone liners and spray with non-stick spray. Make sure you spray the liners (paper or silicone) or the muffins will stick.
  • Bake: Place batter evenly in muffin tin. The batter should fill 12 muffin cups. Drop 3-5 mini chocolate chips on top of each muffin. Bake for 23-25 minutes or until the edges are starting to brown and the muffins are baked through. Test with a toothpick.
  • Let cool: Remove from the oven, let muffins sit for 5 minutes, then use a knife to go around the edge of each muffin and gently remove them from the tin and place on a flat surface to cool.
  • Serve: Once they cool, they'll be firm and ready to eat!
  • Store: Place in a sealed container and store at room temperature or in the fridge for longer storage.

Notes

  • Protein powder: I personally like plant-based protein powders and collagen options, but you can use whatever you prefer!
  • Stevia baking blend: You can use 6-8 stevia packets instead or another sweetener of choice.
  • Yogurt: Feel free to use a dairy-free yogurt if needed.
