High Protein, Low Carb Muffin Recipe

I was supposed to working on some assignments today so instead I decided to make a Keto friendly snack because... well you can't get much done when you're hungry, right? Procrastination baking commence! Full disclosure, I wasn't expecting much out of these muffins but they came out tasting great! So I'll share the recipe with you guys and you can try them for yourself.

I went for a chocolate, vanilla, almond crunch flavour but you can choose to play with the tastes as you wish. So what's in them?

4 nice big scoops of protein powder (I use a Whey isolate that is sweetened with vanilla and stevia)
2 tbsp cocoa powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt (I would maybe add 2 next time)
2 tsp cinnamon (why not?)
2 tsp Xylitol
3 whole eggs
1 tbsp olive oil
2 tsp vanilla extract
300ml unsweetened coconut milk
As many nuts or seeds as you want - tip: add them after you've put the batter into a muffin tray so they can be more evenly distributed

Preheat that oven to 350F and after coating the muffin tray with some non stick spray, pour that mixed up batter in and let these protein packed snacks bake for around 18 minutes and bam! Low carb, high protein, great tasting, keto maintaining snacks for a week! Try them out! 

For even more fatty goodness, try cutting one open after they're freshly baked and melting some butter on the insides before indulging!

Here is the nutritional content of each muffin:

Calories: 140cals
