These hearty muffins are a great way to start your day. They will keep you full until lunch and help curb your cravings. They also pack well and make for great trail food. Have you ever had a protein muffin during a long hike? There is nothing better.
Why drink wholesome?
This recipe was made with drink wholesome vanilla protein powder. It is perfect for adding to recipes. Most protein powders are not because they are made with protein concentrates and isolates, foods stripped of everything but the protein.
Unlike real foods, protein concentrates and isolates are missing the nutrients that make food taste good. In other words, they turn delicious recipes into hockey pucks. With enough trial and error, you can make these protein powders work, but how much rock-hard muffins are you willing to make?
Another reason why drink wholesome is perfect for baking is that it is sweetened with monk fruit. Monk fruit, also known as lo han guo, is a small, melon-like round fruit native to Southeast Asia. Monk fruit sweetener is made by removing the seeds and skin, crushing the fruit, and collecting the juice, which is then dried into a powder.
We use monk fruit sweetener because it has a sweetness similar to that of sugar. Artificial sweeteners and stevia, on the other hand, are either way too sweet, or have a bitter aftertaste. Order samples to experience the monk fruit sweetness for yourself.
