Strawberry Muffins (C2)

Recipe Author: Simmie Sinow

2 scoops vanilla whey protein powder
¾ cup whole wheat flour
2 cups uncooked oats
¼ cup unsweetened applesauce   (probably don’t even need this!)
½ cup Eggbeaters (equivalent of 2 eggs)
1 tsp (rounded) baking powder
1 Tbsp olive oil
1 ¾ cup CarbMaster Yogurt: Strawberry

Mix all dry ingredients together well.  In a separate bowl, mix all the wet ingredients together well (applesauce, eggbeaters, oil, yogurt) and then combine the two bowls of ingredients and mix well.

Note: Be sure and "cream" the CarbMasters yogurt (if that's the kind you're using) well, as it does tend to come out of the container in one piece (much like a piece of lard, though trust me, it tastes nothing like lard!).  Just take a spoon and stir it hard until it is nice and creamy.

The batter will be wet!!! Do not worry about it, it will bake just fine.

Bake in jumbo muffin tins that have been thoroughly sprayed with non-stick spray such as PAM at 350 for 25-30 minutes.  Make sure you do not over-bake or you will wind up with rocks!!!

I have only done this recipe with Jumbo muffin pans, so if you are using the regular size, check before the 25 minutes comes around.  Use a toothpick to see when they are done.  In fact, even the Jumbo muffins could probably have been taken out before 25 minutes.

17DDGal note: 
You are not counting the yogurt towards your probiotic requirement, as when it is heated, it destroys the probiotics in the yogurt.

If you’re refrigerating this and then re-heating, I’d recommend checking them at about 20 minutes and leave them a bit more moist inside than you usually do; then when you re-heat them, they won’t dry out.

CarbMasters Yogurt! Where can I find it?
CarbMasters yogurt is a Kroger store brand name.  Kroger stores go by different names in different areas: Ralph's Market, Food4Less, Fred Meyer, etc.
