100cal Orange and Cherry Muffins

IMG_20160518_205644

So, I love muffins. I dislike all of the fat that is usually accompanied with them. They are so good, with so many different flavor combos. Unfortunately, I don’t travel out to get them as they take a toll on my macros. Lucky for you all I can do a bit of baking! I whipped up these Orange and Cherry muffins well keeping in mind, LOW FAT!

Well…… I came through guys. 100 calories for these delicious muffins. Actually 94 cals to be exact!

Macros:

  • Cals – 94
  • Fat – .8g
  • Carbs – 10.1g
  • Protein – 7.5g
  • Fiber – 2.3g

Ingredients:

    • 4 Scoops GNC Orange Lean Shake(Can use regular protein but will need to adjust. Lean shake is 104g total grams of powder, but it also has some carbs/fiber with it. Might just need to add in more of a fat source going straight protein)
    • 21g Coconut Flour

Bob’s Red Mill – Organic Coconut Flour, 16 Ounces

    • 10g Truvia or granulated sugar of choice

Truvia Natural Sweetener, Baking Blend, 1.5 Pound

  • 14g Splenda Brown Sugar Blend
  • 8g SF FF Vanilla Pudding mix
  • 138g(3svg)  Liquid Egg whites
  • 200g 0% Plain Greek yogurt
  • 40g Dried Cherries
  • 1 Teaspoon Vanilla
  • 1/4-1/2 Orange Extract(more extract if not using orange protein powder)
  • 1 Teaspoon Baking Powder

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  2. In a bowl place your protein, coconut flour, sweeteners, baking powder and pudding mix. Combine all ingredients well.
  3. Next place in your eggs, vanilla, yogurt, and orange extract. Combine into dry mix.
  4. I then placed 15g of my dried cherries into the mix and stirred well.
  5. Place batter evenly into a sprayed muffin tin. I got 10 total. Adjust for macros and desired size.
  6. Place remaining cherries on top of each muffin,. I averaged 2-3 per muffin.
  7. Place on the middle rack of your oven and bake for 15-18 minutes. Baking times vary from protein to protein.
  8. Use the toothpick method to check if done. Once Done, pull out and place on cooling rack.
  9. After 10 minutes, remove from muffin tin and place back on cooling rack to finish baking.
  10. EAT ALL THE MUFFINS!

Mighty Muffins

muffins_one_ca__17329_1452695041_1280_1280

Finally trying the @proteinpancakes mighty muffins. I’ve heard good things.
Went with the cinnamon apple as it goes with what I’ll be making tonight.
Macros : 5f/24c/20p
Super rich cinnamon flavor, and good amount of Apple chunks. Making it is easier than hell, just make sure to get all the dry mixed well. Just a bit dry but not like a typical mugcake. I did feel as though this gave me a bit of a unwanted cinnamon bite at the end. Great concept , but I think the flavor on this one could use a bit of work. I’ve been told the maple and chocolate are good so when I can get my hands on them I’ll update

@proteinpancakes chocolate peanut butter mighty muffin 8f/22c/20p

Great chocolate aroma, specially before you cook it. Slightly under dosed on the chocolate flavor was really the only downside to that, but it’s quite good when you get a PB chip with the bite. The texture of these is absolutely spot on👌 gooey, fluffy, and light. Left it slightly undercooked for some yummy gooeyness at the bottom. Really like these quick govto muffins.

@proteinpancakes mighty muffin peanut butter flavor 7f/22c/20p
Slightly weak and underwhelming pb flavour when you don’t get a chip with the bite. They seem to sink n sit at the bottom. Very moist, good easy chew, great fluffy muffin texture. When you do get a PB chip in your bite it is quite enjoyable. Super easy to make, just add water n mic for 50sec. I love the concept of these. Did like this one over the cinnamon apple.

Good aroma before you even cook it. Nice pumpkin flavor right away then the maple follows. Nice and fluffy, great texture, super easy to make as you just add water. All of these mighty muffins also have Probiotics which is a nice addition. I like that this one also only has 4g of fat in it compared to he typical 8g. This definitely became one of my more favorite flavors. Just need to try the chocolate and the smores.

8.5/10

Served with a fresh cup of @alphamind_coffee

@proteinpancakes smores mighty muffin. 6f/24c/20p – slightly strange smell when first opened, and still once cooked. Good amount of chocolate chips and marshmallows thru out that really gave it a nice flavor, but the muffin itself I feel is slightly lacking sweetness. With the amount of chocolate in here maybe just a few more marshmallows, and maybe somehow add in a Graham cracker crunch it would be great.
Either way if you get a bit of chocolate in every bite your golden. Still love the concept of these muffins. 1 more suggestion would be to add a small fill line so the user knows how much liquid to put in.

7.5/10

@proteinpancakes chocolate mighty muffin: 8f/21c/20p .So fluffy, moist, and gooey. I feel the chocolate is a bit undertone here and needs just a tad bit more sweetness with it. Have a slight coco powder after taste. It is good chocolate flavor tho when you get yourself a nice melted chocolate chunk that’s scattered throughout the muffin. I think texture and presentation wise this is spot on a muffin, now to just tweak the flavors a bit more and it will be solid.

IMG_20150711_123803

Well I was having breakfast the other day, I believe it was a omelet and bagel. I finished it up, and thought to myself this just isn’t enough. Wanted to smash down some more protein without killing the fats.

Decided I would quick whip together some macro friendly Puffins. (Protein Muffins)

What you will need:

15g Self rising flour

1 egg white

33g Smores Protein

5g Pyslium Husk (not needed, I just wanted more fiber)

4g SF FF Vanilla or Chocolate Pudding mix

4g Brown Sugar Sweetner

1.7oz Applesauce

Vanilla Extract

Baking powder

Cinnamon

Splash of Almond Milk

Toppings:

7.5g Mini Marshmallows

15 pieces of Smores Goldfish

Chocolate Sauce

Let’s get started

IMG_20150711_121341425_HDR

IMG_20150711_121434960_HDR

Add in Wet ingredients and mix that shit up

IMG_20150711_121529056

IMG_20150711_122043970_HDR

Throw your batter in the spray muffin tin. I made 4 big ones, could of gotten 5 out of it though.

Bake @ 350 for roughly 12 min. After 8 or so minutes I took them out topped with goldfish and marshmallows. Put back in for roughly 2 more min. Then switched the muffins to a higher rack and Switched the oven to Broil and let the Mallows get all purty like.

Watch closely as you don’t want to burn and ruin everything haha. Let cool in pan for a couple minutes if you would like, or if you are a fatty like myself, demolish as soon as you can.

Top with some chocolate sauce if you would like.

Hot Damn look at that. 4 Quick ass smores muffins that are so good!

Macros for all 4 : 376cals / 4.1fat / 49.9 carbs / 31.4 protein

Macros for 1 muffin : 94 cals / 1 fat /  12.5 carbs / 7.8 protein

That is with toppings included. If you just went plain jane or even a protein frosting those macros would be even lower!

Not to shabby if I say so myself.

Cinnamon and Puffins, Puffins and cinnamon. Oh wait, their Blueberry!

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 😉

IMG_20150609_120140_020

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.

IMG_20150609_120708_804

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.

IMG_20150609_121057_019

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.

IMG_20150609_121331_988

 

In the meantime for the this version I decided to go with a Greek Yogurt Glaze even tho I am not a huge fan.

Mix

30g Greek yogurt

10G Protein

Splash of Pancake Syrup

Loads more Cinnamon

Touch of vanilla

Then I threw in Fridge till ready to frost.

IMG_20150609_122834_653

Pop your muffins out of the oven and use the ole toothpick test. Set aside to cool

IMG_20150609_125746

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!

If you like what you see and give it a try don’t forget to let me know what you think!
