Zucchini with a Protein Punch

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!!!

Ingredients:

   1/2 Cup of Oatmeal

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

1/2 Zucchini

Non-stick cooking spray

Muffin Tin

Directions:

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!
