My New TO GO Protein Breakfast!

I was in the baking mood tonight and wanted to make something high in protein and specifically I wanted to make something I had all the ingredients to in my fridge. I also wanted something that would give more time in the mornings so I can maximize my run time. With these high protein whole grain muffins I can grab them on the go for a healthy start to my day.

 I came up with:

Apple Cinnamon Coconut Protein Muffins

1 cup whole wheat flour 
3Tbsp vanilla protein powder
2 egg whites 
3 Tbsp flax seed 
1 Tbsp Cinnamon 
1/2 cup apple sauce 
3 Tbsp Craisins (just sounded good :) )  
1 tsp baking soda 
1 tsp baking powder 


Preheat oven to 350F. Mix all ingredients together in a bowl and stir until combined. I added a table spoon water to add just a little more liquid. Sperate into 6 muffin containers and bake for 30 minutes. 

I ate my first on with peanut butter and a greek yogurt! YUM :)
