Sometimes I forget how wonderful it is to bake with Jamie Eason’s Peanut Protein. The texture of these Apple Peanut Protein Muffins is perfect, not to mention the amazing flavor! If you haven’t yet baked with peanut protein, you are missing out! **Update: this protein powder has been discontinued, but you can get the same results with powdered peanut butter. You may need to add some stevia or sweetener of choice.

The recipe is very simple and easy to make. Egg whites, applesauce, and baking powder are all you need to add to make a basic cake batter, and I’ve added some cinnamon, chopped apples, and peanuts. So easy, and so good!

Notes
A note about substitutions: because each type of protein powder has a distinct flavor and texture when baked, I would not recommend using whey protein or other vegan powders here. You might try using powdered peanut butter or peanut flour in place of the protein powder, but you'd probably want to add a sweetener. (See my Recipe Basics video for examples of what goes wrong when you use the wrong protein powder.)
