Cinnamon Oat Blueberry Protein Muffins

These Cinnamon Oat Blueberry Muffins are great at anytime of the day for a healthy snack, or after an intense workout. After a workout, your body will instantly try to rebuild it’s glycogen stores which have been depleted during intense exercise.

Cinnamon Oat Blueberry Protein Muffins

Ingredients

  • 2 Bananas
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1 cup of Oats (if the mixture is too runny, add more)
  • 1 scoop of Vegan Protein Powder (optional)
  • 2 tsp of Cinnamon
  • Blueberry’s
  • Chai Seeds (optional)

Method

Prep: 10 mins > Cook: 20 mins > Ready in: 30 mins

Grease a cake baking tin with grass fed butter.

In a bowl mash the bananas until soft, then crack in 2 eggs in and mix well.

Next add the Oats, Protein Powder, Cinnamon, Baking Powder and mix everything together. Finally, add in the Blueberries and gently fold them into the mix.
Put the mix into the muffin tin, making sure the mix is level with the top as the muffins will raise slightly. I sprinkled a few with Chai Seeds for that extra protein fix.

Cook in the oven at 180 degrees for 20 mins then enjoy!

Coconut Protein Balls

These Vanilla & Cocao protein balls are a great for a quick post workout fix, or as a healthy snack at any time of the day.

Makes 12 – 14 protein balls

Vanilla & Cocao Protein Balls

Ingredients

  • 2 scoops of vegan vanilla protein powder
  • 1 teaspoon cocao powder
  • 1 tablespoon almond butter (or hazelnut butter)
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 1 tablespoon chai seeds
  • 1 tablespoon flaked coconut

Method

In a bowl mix the protein powder, cocao powder and almond butter together.

protein ball mixMelt the coconut oil slightly in the microwave (about 10-20 seconds) and pour into the mix and stir. The mix should turn soft, if it’s still too dry add in more coconut oil until you get a smooth texture.

Pop the mix in the fridge for 5 minutes, and the coconut oil will solidify enough for you to roll into balls.

Sprinkle the chai seeds and coconut flakes out ready to coat the balls.

As you roll the mix into balls, the coconut oil will melt the balls slightly, but that’s ok, the balls will harden up again at room temperature.

Coat the balls with the flake mix, and pop them on parchment paper ready to cool and set in the fridge.

Store in an airtight container and ENJOY!!
