There really isn’t too many options when it comes to muffins–actually there aren’t any options EXCEPT when they have a protein punch. I came up with these Zucchini muffins after making “protein” pancakes every morning. I really wanted to try something more exciting, and since fruit hasn’t been a staple in my diet for the last 6 weeks I threw in a little shredded Zucchini. The recipe below makes 5/6 muffins and you get to eat ALL of THEM!!!
1 Cup of Egg Whites
1 tsp of Baking Powder
1 tsp of Baking Soda
8 Stevia Packets
1 tsp of vanilla
1 tbsp of cinnamon
Non-stick cooking spray
Pre-heat oven to 350 Degrees F
Pour all ingredients EXCEPT ZUCCHINI into a blender (I use a magic bullet)
Blend until oats are fine and everything is mixed
Shred a half of a Zucchini (should equal a little less than a cup)
Mix the Zucchini and the wet ingredients in a bowl
Spray non-stick cooking spray in muffin tin. Pour mixture into muffin tin.
Cook for 25 minutes or until baked through.
Hope you enjoy them as much as I do!
