Gluten Free Apple Protein Muffins

Melissa Hincha-Ownby 


For some families, eating a gluten free diet is a choice and for others it is a necessity. A trip down the grocery store aisles reveals a bevy of gluten free packaged goods available for purchase, but it is easy to make your own gluten free products from scratch. These apple protein muffins can be prepared in about 15 minutes and are perfect for a quick snack or as part of a complete breakfast.

Prep: 15 minutes
Cook: 16 – 18 minutes
Yield: 12 muffins


1 cup gluten free quick oats
1/2 cup vanilla whey protein powder
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
3/4 cup vanilla Greek yogurt
1 egg
1/4 cup almond milk
2 tablespoon honey
1 apple (any variety)


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

2 Combine oats, protein powder, cinnamon, salt and baking powder in a bowl. Set aside.

3. Dice the apple into small pieces and set aside.

4. In a separate bowl, beat the egg with the yogurt until well blended. Add almond milk and honey then stir.

5. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix well. Add the diced apples and blend. Note: Batter will be lumpy.

6. Spray silicone baking cups or parchment paper muffin liners. These muffins will stick, even to parchment paper, so make sure you take the time to spray the liners or baking cups thoroughly.

7. Bake in oven for 16 - 18 minutes.

8. Let muffins cool completely before eating.
