Because we love it as a beverage, why not in a muffin?! I created this recipe for Pumpkin Spice Latte Protein Muffins after receiving some new all-natural whey protein in Café Cream flavor, and after seeing some other pumpkin latte inspired recipes online. Another easy, delicious, high-protein recipe!

I love trying new protein powders, and I was excited to see the Vitamin Shoppe‘s new NutriWhey line of natural whey proteins! I’ve been drinking lots of coffee lately (way too much, really!) and couldn’t resist trying the Café Cream flavor. It has roasted coffee beans in it. So good!

My next recipe with this Café Cream whey is going to be something tiramisu, like Tiramisu Protein Truffles! I already wrote a recipe for a high-protein Tiramisu dessert, and that can be found in my Bake for the Cause recipe ebook to benefit cancer research. (That recipe alone is worth the $10 donation!) That was before I had this protein, and that recipe calls for vanilla whey and vanilla Warrior Blend.

Ingredients
Muffin:
Icing:
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 325F (163C).
  2. Mix all ingredients until well combined.
  3. Spoon into 3 large silicone muffin cups.
  4. Bake for 16 minutes, and check to see if the muffins are firm. If not, check every minute or two. Remove from oven as soon as they are firm. (Over-baked whey recipes can get very dry.)
  5. Enjoy! Store in the refrigerator.
Notes
A note about substitutions: because each type of protein powder has a distinct flavor and texture when baked, I would not try substituting different types of protein powders in this recipe. (See my Recipe Basics video for examples of what goes wrong when you use the wrong protein powder.) If you want to try this with vanilla whey, you'd probably need 1-2 teaspoons of instant coffee to get the latte flavor.
