{Low Calorie, No Added Sugar, Protein Muffins}

Hello cupcakes!

I have some macro friendly muffins to share with you today.

This weekend was a such a relief for me. The past week has been pretty crazy with graduate school projects. I have also been a little stress because I finally figured out counseling is not exactly my career path. It stinks to go through so much school and not really know what you want to do with your life. One of my passions in life is fitness and nutrition, which you probably already know if you are reading this post. I am also a huge planner & organizer. These passions of mine just aren't quite fulfilled in the counseling field. I am currently working on piecing together all of my passions to find my dream job. I want to do what makes me happy. I want to wake up and be excited to go to work. As of right now, I am trying to be at peace with the unknown. It is also part of my adventure of moving to California after I graduate. Right now I am looking into director or manager positions and thinking about getting certified as a personal trainer and getting my nutrition certification. 

Anyways, let me share this awesome muffin recipe with you...

Macro Friendly Muffins

124 g. of unsweetened applesauce (1/2 c.)
48 g. egg whites (3 T)
sprinkle of baking powder
2 tsp. pure vanilla extract (I used my homemade version)
2 scoops Vital Protein's Collagen Peptides
65 g. Otto's Cassava Flour
*if you want your muffins sweeter, you could add 3T of honey, maple syrup, or coconut sugar but this will change the macros*

Combine dry ingredients in a bowl. Add wet ingredients and stir until combined. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a small muffin pan or use muffin liners. Scoop batter into 4 muffin cups. Bake in a preheated oven for 15-20 minutes or until the muffins are starting to get golden and the tops are springy to touch. 

Makes 4 muffins 
*You can double the ingredients for 8 muffins or triple recipe for 12 muffins*

Macros for 1 muffin:
96 calories
.3 g fat
16.7 g carbs
6.1 g protein

I've had some questions about where I get my specialty flours and ingredients. Honestly, I order most of them online. Amazon is one of my go-to places!

If you would like to order the collagen, follow this link Vital Proteins: Collagen Peptides

You can also search on Amazon for "Vital Proteins"

If you would like to order the cassava flour, follow this link: Otto's Cassava Flour

I also have previous posts about the benefits of these two products:

I hope you all have a fantastic day!

  1. Have you ever substituted the Cassava flour with almond or coconut flour?

    1. Hello Dani! Thanks for stopping by my blog. I haven't substituted almond or coconut flour in this specific recipe, but I have baked with those flours before. I'm sure it would work fine with this recipe if you substituted, the ratio of flours may differ though. I hope you have a fantastic week!
