Well The feedback I have been getting from these Cinnamon Puffins lately has been crazy! That is right I said Puffins. Protein Muffins my Flexible Dieting people. In the past couple days I have no made these 3 times, each time slightly changing volume of ingredients, and changing up the frosting each time as well. Last two times I have gotten crazy and added blue berries!
Today I will show you how you can make a half batch, or a full batch. You can decide 😉
First let us begin with adding
17g Protein of Choice. I used @cellucor Cinnamon swirl
10g Coconut flour
1 packet Stevia
1 tsp of baking powder ( I gotta be honest I don’t measure)
2 tsp cinnamon (again I don’t measure I just dump in)
4g Vanilla SF FF Pudding mix
Mix that all together.
Then I added
45g Pumpkin Puree (Usually would of been 30 but I wanted to use up what was left)
Couple splashes of vanilla
46g Egg whites
10g @Waldensfarmsinternational Pancake Syrup
Splash of milk…… Literally. Just a splash, don’t do what I usually do and make things to runny.
Throw you batter into either sprayed tin or use these little holders. First time I used these, and I must say I wont be again I don’t think. For one, I lost some of my muffin when getting them out, and two it seemed to make them cook longer.
I then threw in 10g of frozen blueberries. They don’t need to be, its just all I had.
Throw in oven at 350 F for anywhere from 12-20min. I find each time its slightly different depending on protein, and such.
In the meantime for the this version I decided to go with a Greek Yogurt Glaze even tho I am not a huge fan.
30g Greek yogurt
Splash of Pancake Syrup
Loads more Cinnamon
Touch of vanilla
Then I threw in Fridge till ready to frost.
Pop your muffins out of the oven and use the ole toothpick test. Set aside to cool
Frost then enjoy by themselves or with a meal! I had them with 3 shrimp egg rolls, Mac n cheese with veggies and pretzels, and a Cheese stuffed burger with BBQ, bacon, and jalapenos.
Here are two other versions that I have made recently. The first one I also had let sit in the fridge for 4-5 hrs before enjoying and gave them a texture I really enjoyed. The 2nd pic, I chose to add some cinnamon toast crunch as a garnish of sorts.
215 kcals 1.1fat 17.1 carbs 30.2 protein
That is 71.6 cals .36 fat 5.7 carbs 10.06 protein per muffin…. or should I say Puffin. Not to shabby I would say!
Like I said, play with the levels to decrease or increase volume. So many combinations ! Stay tune for some more flavor combos!
