Muffins with Protein

Oat protein muffins can offer a range of health benefits due to the nutritious components they contain.

Oats are a good source of plant-based protein, and when combined with other protein sources like eggs, yogurt, or protein powder, oat protein muffins can provide a substantial amount of protein. Protein is essential for muscle repair, immune function, and the production of enzymes and hormones.

Now one of the ingredients is something that adds to the ease of making these muffins. Seven Sundays Maple Almond Protein Oats. What’s even more awesome about using this ingredient is that it has all the spices and sweetening (the best in class!) that you need, plus flax and chia, and in one serving, one-half cup, there’s 11 grams of protein!

You can see why I like to use it in this recipe. And, jump over to Amazon and easily order a bag! You’ll use for many things!

How about some sustained energy.

Oats provide complex carbohydrates that are digested slowly, leading to a gradual release of glucose into the bloodstream. This can provide sustained energy levels and help prevent rapid spikes and crashes in blood sugar.

Plus, oats are rich in soluble fiber, specifically beta-glucans, which have been shown to have various health benefits. Fiber supports digestive health, helps regulate blood sugar levels, and contributes to a feeling of fullness.

Greek Yogurt Muffins

Adding the Greek yogurt to create the thick batter only adds to the nutrient density of these muffins.

 Oats contain various vitamins and minerals, such as manganese, phosphorus, magnesium, and iron. These nutrients play important roles in bone health, energy production, and overall well-being.

And, I’m not adding any more sugar than the natural sweetening found in the Seven Sundays Protein Oats Mix, which maple syrup! If you make these oat protein muffins at home, you have control over the ingredients, including the amount of added sugar. This can result in a healthier option compared to store-bought muffins that often contain high amounts of added sugars.

Another thing about this batter mix. It’s pretty thick and dense. That means you conceivably could ‘fry’ the mix like a ‘johnny cake’. Then it becomes a hand held protein oat cake. Just drizzle a tad bit of warm syrup on it, and, presto, you have something insanely tasty!

And, don’t forget that this oat protein muffins can be customized with nutritious additions like fruits (e.g., berries, bananas), nuts, seeds, and even vegetables (e.g., grated carrots, zucchini). These additions can increase the vitamin, mineral, and antioxidant content of the muffins.

Easy Protein Muffins

Oats themselves are naturally gluten-free, but cross-contamination during processing is common. However, certified gluten-free oats are available for those who need to avoid gluten, making oat-based muffins a suitable option.

And, I’m keeping them gluten free because we’re using paleo flour. 

How to Make Protein Muffins

Now it’s just so simple to make these muffins. You just dump! Yes, dump in a bowl the egg, coconut oil, yogurt, almonds, flour and protein oat mix. Then you blend it all together and plop into the cupcake pan. That’s it. 

My oat protein muffins can be enjoyed as a convenient and portable snack or as part of a balanced breakfast. They’re versatile and can be tailored to fit various dietary preferences and restrictions.

Remember that the overall health benefits of oat protein muffins depend on the specific ingredients you use and the portion sizes you consume. Choosing whole and minimally processed ingredients while controlling added sugars can maximize the positive impact on your health. That’s very important!
