Craving a healthier muffin? If you’re someone who loves to bake but since going on a healthier eating program has given up on this habit, it’s time to seek out some healthier recipes so that you can add it back in.

Here’s a sinfully good muffin recipe to get you started along with a number of different variations you can use.
The Muffin Recipe
This basic muffin recipe can be altered in a number of different manners depending on your taste preference. The regular flour called for in muffins has been replaced with protein powder along with almond and coconut flour, leaving you with a higher protein, lower carb variety.
In addition to that, the high fat ingredients have been replaced with lower fat and calorie egg whites and applesauce, again making it rank that much higher on the nutrition front.
Here’s the recipe to use.
¼ cup protein powder
1 tbsp. coconut flour
1 tbsp. almond flour
½ tsp. baking powder
1/3 cup unsweetened applesauce
1/3 cup egg whites
1/8 cup almond milk
Combine all of these ingredients together and then bake at 375 for 12-13 minutes.
Now, there are many different varieties that you can use with this muffin. First, consider using your favorite protein powder in combination with add-ins.
Chocolate protein powder with peanut butter. Strawberry protein powder with some fresh or frozen strawberries. Cinnamon bun protein powder with some diced apples.
All of these quickly liven up this recipe, while keeping the good nutrition intact.
The second way to add more variation to this recipe is by swapping out the applesauce for other wet ingredients. Pureed pumpkin works great if you want pumpkin muffins, or consider using some mashed bananas well.
This can create a banana bread like muffin if you also use banana protein powder and add in some chopped walnuts as well.
So there you have one great baking recipe to get you started as you aim to prepare healthier recipes that serve your body well. Get more creative in the kitchen and you will come to find that dieting isn’t nearly as bad as you anticipated.
