Healthy Protein Muffins with Walnuts: Easy and Delicious Breakfast Recipe 

Protein Muffins

A recipe for the most incredible healthy and delicious muffin you won’t be able to resist upon tasting is this one for my soft, moist and fluffy protein muffins with a chew to them. These fortified nut muffins make an ideal breakfast treat to serve the family without feeling so guilty about all the empty calories that you may be putting before them. What makes them so scrumptious is the simple goodness from oats, mingling with the nuts and flour and less sugar than you might think to let that wholesome flavor shine through.

5 Reasons You’ll Want to Make These Healthy Walnut Muffins

To begin with, the muffins use basic and fairly common ingredients that you already probably have in your kitchen or pantry.

Furthermore, they are not overly expensive to bake. The most costly ingredient is the nuts. All the other ingredients are kitchen staples with flour, oats, vanilla, sugar, baking powder, egg, milk, and canola oil.

Another plus for these delectable walnut muffins is that they are more nutritious than plain muffins. After all, they have a lot of oats and walnuts to keep you more satisfied.

Yet, these nutty oatmeal muffins also are healthier with only a fourth cup of canola oil and sugar. At the same time, there is no salt in this protein muffin. Of course, there is sodium in regular baking powder. Nonetheless, you can always opt for a low-sodium baking powder.

Finally, this muffin recipe is so effortless. No electric mixer is required. All that you need is just a large spoon or fork to blend the wet into the dry ingredients and stirring in the chopped nuts last before pouring into your muffin pans.

Why not treat your family with these fantastic easy protein muffins? You just may be surprised that they could become your new family favorite when it is muffin baking time.

Protein Muffins

1 cup of flour
1 cup of uncooked quick oats
½ cups of chopped walnuts
1 teaspoon of vanilla
1/4 cup of sugar
3 teaspoons of baking powder, leveled
1 large egg, beaten
1 cup of milk
1/4 cup of canola oil

Sift together the dry ingredients (the flour, oats, sugar, and baking powder) in one large mixing bowl.

In a separate mixing bowl, add the egg, milk, oil, and vanilla and mix together.

Now combine some of the wet ingredients to the dry ones, alternating until both wet and dry are well combined.

Stir in the chopped nuts last.

Pour into your lined or well-greased muffin pan and fill two-thirds full.

Bake in a 350-degree oven for about 15-20 minutes, depending on how your oven is regulated. Test with a toothpick, slender knife or cake tester to see if anything sticks.

This recipe makes 12 muffins.

ENJOY!
