Gluten Free Apple Walnut Muffins with Protein

Gluten Free Apple Walnut Muffins with Protein

| APPLE WALNUT MUFFINS | with vanilla protein.

Baking is and always has been an important part to my weekly meal prep. As someone with a sweet tooth I absolutely need some healthier go-to cookies, muffins, or bars to grab during the week to stay on track with my healthy eating. Adding a bit of protein and avoiding refined sugars is a huge bonus too!


Recipe notes:

Because the size of a banana and how soft it is can vary, along with how liquid or thick your peanut butter is, the batter at the end could result in a firmer than desired consistency. If this is the case simply add in 1-2 tbsp soy milk at a time, gently folding through until you have a nice batter. Keeping in mind muffin batter is thicker than cake, but it shouldn't be a cookie dough.

I've used a ton of my favourite baking ingredients in these muffins, a handful of which I have affiliate discount codes for! If it's underlined that means you can shop the link at a 20% off discount.
