2 scoops (2/3 cup) vanilla protein powder
(We used GNC Pro Performance 100% Whey Protein Vanilla Flavor.)
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. cinnamon, ground
1 whole large egg
2 large egg whites
1 2/3 cup light buttermilk
2 Tbsp. canola oil
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 cup sugar free strawberry jam
(We used Smucker's Sugar Free Seedless Strawberry Jam.)
1/4 cup sugar free honey
(We used Honey Tree's Sugar Free Imitation Honey.)
2 cups finely chopped rhubarb
Strawberry jam with fresh rhubarb combine to make a sweet & tart protein muffin.
1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Lightly coat 24 muffin cups with buttery cooking spray. Set aside.
2. Whisk together the eight dry ingredients, pastry flour through cinnamon, in a large mixing bowl.
3. In another bowl, whisk together the next seven wet ingredients, eggs through sugar free honey. Then stir together the wet and dry ingredients, fold in the rhubarb.
4. Divide the batter between the 24 muffin cups. Bake for 19-22 minutes, until a wooden toothpick inserted into a muffin comes out clean. Remove from the oven and let cool for 5 minutes before serving.
