100 Calorie Vegan Protein Oatmeal Muffins
The last baked oatmeal muffin recipe was as popular as Justin Bieber at one of Bryan Singer’s twink parties. If you don’t get that: it just means it was pretty popular. Anyway, I’ve been working on a bigger, better version of the muffins, and I think I nailed it.
I bolstered this batch with protein powder because Vegans and Vegheads (including me) are always kind of protein paranoid.
So, a delicious protein powered portable breakfast or snack for around 100 calories without all preservatives of a protein bar. Yeah, it’s pretty awesome.
1 C apple sauce
4 packets Splenda, Stevia, or your favorite sweetener
2 ½ C rolled oats
2 C water
2 T flax seeds
2 C raspberries (any kind of berry works here)
1 t vanilla extract
2 T vanilla vegan protein powder (I use Vega)
Just the Tip- Dust your berries with a little bit of flour before adding, so they don’t just sink to the bottom of the muffin like they’re wearing cement shoes.
Preheat oven to 400F
In a large mixing bowl, combine apple sauce, sweetener, vanilla, protein powder, flax, oats and berries. Stir well and let sit for 5 minutes.
Grease a muffin tin. Using a spoon, fill each of the cups with the mixture.
Place in the oven and bake for 30 minutes (or longer if your oven sucks).
