Nutrition & Calorie Comments  

Very good, moist. I used raspberries just because that's what I had in the freezer. I used splenda instead of sugar, as I am very sensitive to sugars. Since gastric bypass surgery I try to avoid sugar and am always looking to up my protein intake! They fell apart a little but that didn't bother me. Submitted by:

I liked that this recipe shows how to replace some of the flour in a muffin recipe with protein powder. Of course, for those of us who have special dietary needs, like not wanting to eat soy or gluten, we have to make subs, but, so what? This is still a great starting point and inspiration.

use Kafir instead of soy milk(overprocessed).
Go to Nutrition store for substitution of "Pure Protien"R Plus.
Use Grape seed oil instead of Canola (GMF)

Boost fiber content by using 1/4 cup oat bran and 3/4 cup flour. This 1:3 bran substitution can be made for flour in most recipes (I say most, but it's always been successful for me) and is the best way to make baked goods more healthful. Adds moisture and a little texture, but doesn't change taste. Submitted by:

I substituted buckwheat flour for gluten free and used applesauce instead of oil, I used vanilla whey protein so I reduced the sugar amount in half but used agave instead of sugar
They were delicious.

sorry but soy is bad, replace with almond milk if you are lactose intolerant and it has more protein, canola oil IS GMO like soy replace with macadamia nut oil, use organic spelt flour not whole wheat again generally GMO, replace sugar with stevia or part stevia part dextrose much better than sugar Submitted by:

These are not healthy!- substitute soy milk for unsweetened almond milk, flour (junk) for more protein powder, psyllium husk and coconut flour, and at a pinch you could add some oat flour (if you weren't to worried about carbs), but sugar? There is no place for sugar in any healthy recipe!! Submitted by:

To Pudlecrazy,
People complain about soy milk, flour and lecitin because many are allergic or have had estrogen positive breast cancer. It is hard to find low-cal protein packed foods without soy. We know we can substitute, but want to get away from such extensive use of these products in.

These are delicious. They are light and fluffy, while staying moist. Next time I might try substitutuing some of the oil for applesauce, but as it stands this is a great low cal, high protein muffin. Keeps me full all morning long! Submitted by:

when you go to this recipe for a makeover, it lists 8 servings of brown rice protein powder. when I change it to grams it takes over 400grams of protein powder to equal the nutritional analysis of 8 servings. My container of protein powder is only 230g.so something is VERY WRONG with the analysis. Submitted by:

NUTRITION INFO INCORRECT! There are only about 6g of protein per muffin. I substituted a few things. When I entered my ingredients into the recipe calculator, my muffins had half as much protein as these. So I checked the protein of each ingredient in this recipe. It only adds up to 6g each.

These are excellent. I cannot rate the recipe as is because I did sub the milk with almond milk and used regular flour. I also cut the sugar since I used vanilla flavored protein powder. But as a basic recipe with super easy substitutions/different flavor options, it's pretty awesome. :) Submitted by:

These were great! Not too sweet, which I love. I used almond milk instead of soy and fresh blueberries instead of frozen. Wondering though if using eggs instead of protein powder would give it the same protein kick (for those of us who are not vegan). Thanks for the delicious healthy recipe! Submitted by:

The pic looks good but i am replacing the sugar with blonde coconut/palm sugar (low glycemic index sweetener), canola oil and soy milk will be replaced with real butter or another healthy fat and coconut milk. I don't have any protein powder but will try and add an egg or 2 in place of it. Submitted by:

I just had a couple of these for breakfast. They are not beautiful, but they are a nice size! I think it's a little strong flavor -on the wild side, but oat instead of w w flour, and applesauce instead of oil would tame it I would think.

By substituting unsweetened applesauce for the oil, you can lose the fat altogether. The muffins will be much more flavorful and moist. Use paper liners so you don't have to grease the muffin tin, which will keep the muffins fresher longer. Submitted by:

Very good, I found I didn't need to cook them for anywhere near 22 minutes (18) but that might be my muffin tin.

Also, by my calculation there's 1 1/3 teaspoons of sugar, not less than a teaspoon (quibble! I know!)
1 cup contains 48 tsp. 48 * 1/3cup = 16 tsp
16/12 muffins = 1.33 tsp/muffin
