Protein Muffins with Lemon & Chia Seeds

If you’re trying to get some more protein in your morning, try these mighty little muffins. A combo of milk, yogurt, and powder means they’re pumped with pure whey. Each muffin contains about 10 grams of protein, so you could have two for breakfast, or just grab one for a post-workout snack.


2 large eggs
1/3 cup (3 oz/90 g) cashew butter
¾ cup (6 oz/185 g) Greek yogurt, plain, nonfat
¼ cup (2 oz/60 g) sugar
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
Zest and juice of ½ lemon
1¼ cups (6½ oz/200 g) all-purpose flour
¼ cup (1 oz/30 g) 100-percent pure whey protein powder
½ tablespoon baking powder
½ teaspoon baking soda
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon chia seeds
½ cup (4 fl oz/125 ml) nonfat milk


Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C). Line a standard 12-cup muffin pan with paper liners.

In a large bowl, beat together the eggs, cashew butter, Greek yogurt, sugar, vanilla, and lemon zest and juice. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, protein powder, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and chia seeds. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, and stir a few times. Add the milk and stir just until smooth.

Divide the batter among the cups in the prepared pan. Bake until the muffins are puffed and golden, 20 to 25 minutes. Cool slightly and serve warm, or cool completely, transfer to an airtight container, and store for up to 5 days.
