  • 1 scoop (25g) Vanilla protein powder
  • 1/2 cup granulated sweetener (maple sugar erythritol, lakanto, coconut sugar)
  • 1/4 cup coconut flour
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon cloves
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • pinch of sea salt
  • 1 cup pecans/ walnuts chopped (pecans are lower in carbs but higher in fat)
  • *top with cream cheese (check added sugars)

*Note: I like using golden flax seeds as I find the taste to be more mellow compared to dark brown flax seeds, but any color flax seed will work.

Instructions

  1. Preheat over to 325*F.
  2. If starting with whole golden flax seed, grind it in a coffee grinder, then measure 1 cup.
  3. Mix ingredients together in a mixing bowl in the order they are listed. You can use an electric mixer if you’d like, but be sure to add in walnuts last, after using a mixer.
  4. Laddel batter into silicone cups or lined muffin tin.
  5. Bake at 325*F for 18 to 22 minutes.
