Coconut Carrot High Protein Muffins
These high protein muffins are oil-free, contain over a cup of shredded carrots and get an extra boost of protein from mashed lentils. The perfect high protein grab and go breakfast!
I wanted to take your average muffin recipe and give it a big boost of protein (without protein powder, because I don’t do protein powder). This way, these high protein muffins have a whole lot more staying power.
These muffins are GREAT. I am actually working on a few more variations of them now, because they are so tasty!
For this batch, I started with this lentil muffin recipe, took out the oil and half the sugar (thank you, applesauce and Greek yogurt!).
Then I added two shredded carrots…finely shred them if you can. And I topped them with sweetened shredded coconut. The sweetness from the coconut is really great with the applesauce/cinnamon/carrot thing that is happening.
