My son is playing soccer for his first time and his games are at 10am on Saturday mornings. This last weekend was our day to bring snacks. I didn’t want to take just some empty calorie snack filled with sugar, so I decided to make some Power Muffins that are packed with protein.
Have you ever tried Kodiak Cake Flapjack mix? They have different versions including a gluten free version that I want to try, but the one I currently am using is made with whole grains and has 14 grams of protein per serving by itself. Once you add eggs and milk the protein count goes up. Anyway, on the box we got last time there was a recipe for Power Muffins, so that is what I made for Mayson to take for soccer snacks. Each kid got a muffin, some orange slices and a small bottle of water for their snack.
Mayson helped me make them and he was so excited to hand them out to his team. We doubled the recipe so that we would be able to enjoy them too. This was my breakfast all week. (2 muffins = 1 yellow and 1/2 purple)
Combine all ingredients in mixing bowl and blend until smooth, adding the chocolate chips or nuts at the end. Fill greased muffin cups 3/4 full. Bake at 350 F for 14-18 minutes or until golden brown and inserted toothpick comes out slightly moist. Makes 12 muffins.
