I love these super moist and tender apple protein muffins. These yummy little ones are protein-packed, 100% healthy, naturally sweetened with maple syrup (could be replaced with honey) and extra easy to make. They are the perfect on-the-go clean eating breakfast or post-workout lunch. These are also gluten-free, dairy-free and can be made vegan by replacing the eggs with flax eggs or applesauce.

Whey Version

Plant-Based Version


  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. Prepare a muffin pan with paper muffin cups or grease with coconut oil.
  3. IMPORTANT: Turn 1 cup rolled oats into a fine flour using a food processor (about 1 minute).
  4. Process the seeded apples, skin on, in a food processor for about 10-15 seconds. They should have the same texture as if they were shredded.
  5. In a large mixing bowl, mix all of the ingredients and stir well.
  6. Divide the batter among 10 to 12 muffin tins, filling them all the way to the top. (Nutrition information is for 10 muffins)

  7. Bake for 18 to 20 minutes or until golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the center of one of the muffins comes out clean.

For the Plant-Based Version

  1. Same instructions, except: 

    - Process 3/4 cup rolled oats (instead of 1 cup)

    - Bake for 28-30 minutes (instead of 18-20))
