Berry Protein Muffins

Sometimes I don’t feel like having an omelette after a workout. It’s not always easy *or palatable* to get your protein needs. After much testing *poor me* this muffin recipe gets the Fit Foodie tick of approval and is a great post-workout snack. Not dissimilar in taste to your typical cafe muffin, but this one is loaded with muscle-loving amino acids that help build and repair. Also known as super muffins. That’s right.





  • 1/2 cup rolled oats (gluten free or regular)
  • 1/2 cup vanilla (or unflavoured) protein powder
  • 2 tbsp coconut flour
  • 1 cup egg whites
  • 1 tbsp Natvia (granulated stevia)*
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 4 tbsp cottage cheese (banana would also work)
  • 1/2 cup frozen berries

*can sub honey, rice malt syrup, maple syrup or sweetener of choice


  • Preheat oven to 160ºC degrees
  • In a blender, add all the ingredients apart from the berries and blend until smooth.
  • Gently fold in your berries.
  • Spoon mixture into a muffin tin sprayed with coconut oil (or silicone muffin cases) and fill close to the top.
  • Bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
  • Allow to cool then pop them out and enjoy!

  1. Hi Angela, all your recipes look so yummy and healthy! Do you if I can substitute the protein powder (in all your recipes) for anything else? I am not a fan of it! Thanks so much for sharing your recipes!!

  2. these muffins look very tasty and the ingredients sound good. Can’t wait to try them out. thanks for the recipe! I like your site

  3. I just took these out lf the oven, and they look great! I adjusted it a bit to use some ingredients I already have instead of running to the shops. Regardless its a great base for a low cal high protien muffin. The variations are endless!
    Thank you xxx

  4. Hi Sally, sorry, another question, if subbing banana instead of cottage cheese “how much banana is used”, thanks.
