Lately I’ve been seeing Protein Poptarts, Protein Pancakes, Protein Muffins and Protein Bread appear more and more on my instagram feed. Haha this is probably beside the point of this entire post BUT those are the cutest little muffins I’ve ever seen! The blogosphere boasts a number of Paleo almond flour muffin recipes, most of which can be traced to one of two sources. In my mind a good muffins should have a tender crumb but must also be firm enough to stand on it’s own without crumblingВ  into your lap. Of course, there’s a secret ingredient to the recipe that makes the muffins so much fluffier and more like wheat-based muffins. I also want to thank Carolyn Ketchum (from All Day I Dream About Food) for first introducing me to the possibilities of baking with whey protein powder, and in fact, this muffin recipe is based on her almond crusted butter cake recipe. Thanks Jenny – the protein powder makes the muffins fluffy because they act in a similar way in baking to gluten in wheat flour. They’re great as treats or if you have cravings, but I would try not to eat any type of Paleo dessert daily if you can.


Don’t get me wrong, I definitely eat meat, legumes and soy (and other protein-filled foods) but sometimes I find it hard to meet my 35 grams a day. I’m not a huge fan of the taste of protein powder, so I always just blend it in shakes. I get my protein okay for lunch and dinner when I usually eat meat, but I need to add more protein for breakfast. I guess I am almost paleo – I’m allergic to beans and legumes and not eating dairy or gluten! I am always looking for good protein snacks to make I happen to have all these ingredients…can’t wait to try them out!!
I love working with almond flour; I used it quite a bit in my Gluten Free muffins cookbook.
I wanted a good rise to the muffins, definitely, but 2 eggs per cup of almond flour was a bit much for me (they tasted overly egg-y). Almond flour is quite heavy and moist compared to traditional flours; the eggs do a lot to lighten the muffins and help them rise.


With 70 calories, 2 grams of fat and 6 grams of protein these muffins pack some serious bang for their buck. I’ve tried following the Paleo diet before, but I missed yogurt and beans way too much.
My husband and I are paleo, but my 2 year old is still eating grains, and I wanted to make her something that was more nutritious than the standard muffins her daycare has been giving her. That leaves greek yogurt and protein powder which I do my best to incorporate in one way or another.
I’m lactose-intolerant but there is virtually no lactose in the protein powder I use (despite being made from whey) so I seem to be able to tolerate it.
