Plant-Based Protein Powder

Vanilla

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 425°F, and lightly spray a standard-size muffin pan (8 cups) with coconut oil.
  2. Combine coconut flour, protein powder, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt in a medium bowl. Make sure there are no clumps of coconut flour in the mixture. In a separate bowl, whisk together the avocado oil, eggs, and vanilla. Stir in the maple syrup, almond milk, and coconut yogurt.
  3. Add a third of the dry mixture to the wet ingredients and begin to incorporate. Repeat two more times with the remaining 2/3 of the dry mixture. Gently fold in the carrots.
  4. Divide the batter among the 8 muffin cups.
  5. Bake at 425°F for 8 minutes. Reduce the temperature to 350°F and continue cooking for 18-22 minutes. Do not open the oven while the muffins are baking! Once they have baked for at least 25 minutes total, you can open the oven to test they are done. Once a toothpick comes out clean or the tops feel firm to touch, remove from the oven and cool for 5 minutes before removing from the pan.
  6. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely, and enjoy!
