cinnamon sugar protein muffins
Confession: I have a SWEET tooth.
But that doesn't mean that satisfying my sugar cravings has to be unhealthy! I'm a big fan of putting healthy twists into traditional comfort food, and these muffins are no exception! I used KODIAK pancake/waffle mix for a healthy punch of protein along with other simple organic ingredients.
Sweets without the guilt... heck yes!
FOR THE MUFFINS
2 cups Kodiak Cakes Power Cakes Mix
2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 cup Agave Nectar
3 egg whites (or 1/4 cup)
1 cup almond milk
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking powder
For the topping:
1 tsp cinnamon
2 tsp sugar
Preheat oven to 350 and line a muffin pan with muffin cups.
In a large bowl, mix together the muffin ingredients until a batter has formed.
Evenly pour batter into each muffin cup, filling them almost to the top.
In a small bowl, mix together the cinnamon and sugar.
Sprinkle the mixture over the batter in each muffin cup.
Bake for 17 minutes, or until the muffins are firm to the touch and an inserted toothpick comes out clean.
Cool for 3 minutes in the pan, then remove and finish cooling on a cooling rack.
Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to a week!
