Like most of you, I work in an office all day, and then I’m out and about after work, which is why meal prep on the weekends is key for me! In addition to prepping all of my breakfasts and lunches for the week every Sunday, I also try to make at least 1 or 2 snacks that will last my hubby and I the entire week. Having some healthy snacks on hand really helps me from giving in to junk food and treats that are stocked in our office kitchen…I’m sure you know how that goes!
I’ve also been trying to mix up my proteins so that I can get some variety in my diet! After all, variety is the spice of life right?!? About Time was kind enough to send me their Cinnamon Spice Natural Vegan Protein, so I decided to whip up these Apple Cinnamon “Proat” Muffins as our snacks for the week! The baked protein + oats combo and the apple + cinnamon spice flavors are right on point and they’re perfect to pack a few in my lunchbox for work each day.
Ingredients (makes 20 muffins):
- 1 Scoop About Time Cinnamon Spice Natural Vegan Protein Powder
- (If you choose to use a different kind of protein, such as whey, it will still come out tasty, just a different consistency)
- 2 Cups Oat Flour
- 1/2 Cup Truvia
- 1 tsp Baking Soda
- 1/2 Cup Unsweetened Applesauce
- 1 Cup Water
- 1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare muffin tins with 24 silicone cupcake liners or just spray tin with cooking spray. (I used silicone liners, as it makes it much easier to pop the muffins out onto a cooling rack after).
In a mixing bowl, combine together all dry ingredients and stir. In another mixing bowl, combine all wet ingredients and stir. Next, pour wet ingredients into bowl with dry ingredients and stir until well mixed.
Once batter is ready, pour into prepared muffin cups, about 3/4 full. Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until toothpick/knife come out clean. Remove from oven and let sit for about 5 minutes. Remove from tin and place on wire rack to finish cooling.
Once the Apple Cinnamon “Proat” Muffins are cool, you can enjoy as is, sprinkle cinnamon on them, or top with peanut butter or yogurt! Enjoy 🙂
