Carrot Cake Protein Muffins

I made these simple Carrot Cake Protein Muffins this morning after breakfast, thinking we’d have them for a snack later.  Snack came earlier than normal and they were devoured quickly.  Even though they are “healthy” muffins, my kids scarfed them down.  They were super easy to make.  I just put all the ingredients in the blender and mixed them up.  They went from blender to muffin pan, to oven to tummy.  Quick and simple.  The muffins are low fat, gluten free and even you are following the Trim Healthy Mama plan, they are an “E”.  Enjoy!

  • 8 egg(s) whites only
  • 1 cup oats *use gluten free if needed

  • ½ cup Truvia (or other sugar substitute)

  1. Combine Egg Whites, oats, cottage cheese, protein powder, baking powder, vanilla, Truvia (or other on plan sweetener), cinnamon and oats in a blender.

Hi Leanne. These are yummy! Just to be safe, because of the carb amount, I would stick to 1 muffin per serving. Although I have to admit, I had to eat 2 because they were that good. 🙂
