Protein Oat Muffins

-->
Who says muffins can’t be healthy and delicious at the same time? Here’s a guilt-free treat to munch on with a splash of GF Oats.

Ingredients:
  • 1 cup flaxseed, ground
  • ½ cup walnuts, ground
  • ½ cup of cashews, ground
  • 1/2 cup of GF Oats
  • ¾ cup protein powder
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 4 teaspoons oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 2/3 cup zucchini, peeled and chopped
  • 1 green apple, chopped
  • 2/3 cup ricotta cheese
  • Grated zest of one orange
  • ½ cup walnuts, chopped
  • Coconut slivers
Method:
  1. Line muffin tin with paper muffin cups.
  2. In your Thermomix or blended, add in your nuts, seeds and oats.  Blend for approx. 3 seconds until just chopped. (I like mine to NOT be blended into a meal)  Set aside.
  3. Add mix flaxseeds, walnuts, protein powder, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt together.
  4. Add into Thermomix chopped zucchini and apple and blend for approx. 3-5 seconds.  Attached butterfly.
  5. Add in oil, eggs, vanilla, grated zucchini, cheese, and orange zest.  Blend gently for 10 seconds.
  6. Add dry ingredients into liquid ingredients. Mix slowly until well blended. Approx 20-30 seconds.  Scrap down the sides and repeat for 10 seconds.
  7. Pour into muffin tins and bake in a pre-heated oven at 180oC for 20 to 25 minutes.
This recipe makes 6 to 8 muffins.
