Ever since going vegan, there’s never been a point where I’ve had the problem of having too much protein.
If you can sneak a little extra into a treat, why wouldn’t you?
That’s what I love about muffins made with protein powder.
They typically give you an extra 7-15 grams of protein per muffin.
I’ve tried many vegan protein powder muffins over time, here are my 6 favorites.
Before we get into them, you’ll need to have a vegan protein powder to make any of them. There’s no specific powder you need, just one that you enjoy.
If you don’t know which one to buy, here’s a helpful list of the best vegan protein powders.
Let’s get to the recipes!
1. Easy Oil-Free Vegan Protein Muffins These muffins are relatively simple to make, and have 137 calories each, with 7 grams of protein.
Not exactly a huge amount of protein, but significant enough to help you hit your protein goals.
2. High Protein Vegan Protein Muffin (Single serving) I love this recipe because it has the highest protein content of any recipe here.
The main ingredients are protein powder and flax meal in an equal amount.
I will warn you that they don’t taste as good as the other muffins on this list for obvious reasons, but they are by far the healthiest.
It’s the classic trade off that has its time and place.
3. 4 Ingredient Flourless Protein Brownie Muffins These are one of the healthier muffins in this list, and are even paleo friendly, despite tasting amazing.
The main ingredients are:
- Nut butter
- Cocoa powder
- Protein powder
That tastes great in most cases, but you can also add a sweetener if the taste isn’t quite there for you.
4. Vegan Apple Oat Protein Muffins These contain the most oats of any recipe. If you’re a fan of oatmeal, you’ll love them.
They also have the classic apple cinnamon flavor, while still including protein powder.
I love peanut butter based treats, which is why I had to include this recipe.
It has a decent 7 grams of protein per muffin, and tastes great.
This is a simple protein muffin recipe based on bananas.
They have 163 calories per muffin, with 7 grams of protein. So not amazing if you’re on a cut, but a perfect bulking snack to get some extra protein and calories.
This is the end of the list!
