Buttermilk Protein Muffins
Peanut Buttermilk Protein Muffins
This recipe is inspired by a recipe in "Just Like Mom Made 1,000 Family Favorites" which was a bargain at Borders book store. It is on page 211, its called Lemon Raspberry Muffins. I've modified the original recipe to include peanuts and whey protein powder.
2 cups all purpose flour minus 1 tbsp.
1 cup organic granulated sugar
1 tbsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 tbsp. vanilla whey powder
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1 cup buttermilk
1/2 cup Safflower oil
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 cup unsalted roasted peanuts
1/2 cup peanut butter chips
Method: Pre-heat oven 400 deg. F
Combine the flour, whey powder, sugar, baking powder and salt.
In another bowl, whisk together the eggs, buttermilk, oil, and vanilla.
Stir into the flour mixture until just moistened, do not over mix.
Gently fold in the peanuts and peanut butter chips.
Fill paper lined muffin cups 2/3 full.
Bake for 20 to 22 min.
Cool for 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack.
Makes about 18 muffins.
1. The whey protein browns quickly, so watch them at minute 18.
2. Be sure to not have any air bubbles, tap the bubbles out on the counter.
