For blueberry muffins:
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 cup (~120g) fresh blueberries
- Granular sweetener of choice to sprinkle on top (I used Golden Monk Fruit)
For chocolate chip muffins:
- 2 tbsp (~20g) mini dark chocolate chips (I used Lily's stevia-sweetened)
- Preheat oven to 350℉
- In a large bowl, add the egg whites, baking powder, xanthan gum, salt, vanilla extract, and sweetener (if desired). Using an electric or stand mixer with a whisk attachment, beat egg white mixture until stiff peaks form.
- Then, gently fold in the protein powder until well combined.
- Add desired mix-ins (blueberry and chocolate chip shown here) but you can use whatever you want.
- Scoop batter evenly into 12 silicone baking cups (you can try to use a regular greased muffin tin but they make stick).
- Sprinkle with granular sweetener and bake for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Enjoy!
