I love to take a couple with me when I'm going to coffee with pals since Starbucks has NOTHING for us in their bakery case when everyone is gobbling up goodies I can breakout my healthier delicious treat (but better bring extras to share, non-ops love them too.)
Shelly's 12 Days of Chocolate Protein Mini Muffins
1 Egg, beaten
3 Tablespoons Milk
2 Tablespoons Sugar Free Vanilla Torani Syrup
1 Tablespoon Canola Oil
3 Tablespoons Multigrain Pancake Mix
2 Tablespoons Unsweetened Cocoa (Hershey's is what I used, baking aisle)
1 scoop Chocolate Protein Powder
Mix egg, milk, syrup and oil (applesauce or cottage cheese can sub for oil but 1 T divided between 12 muffins is really not a lot) and combine thoroughly. In a separate bowl, mix pancake mix, cocoa, protein powder and salt. Tip dry into wet and stir till combined. Pour into a non stick mini muffin pan that has been sprayed with Pam.
Add something from the topping list to each one. Not too much. 1 cherry, 1 malted milk ball, 1/4 teaspoon peanut butter, sprinkle of coffee, 1/2 a strawberry, etc. Bake at 350 for 10 minutes.
Sugar Free Orange Marmalade (Smuckers)
Sugar Free Candy Cane Bits (Bob's found them at CVS, Walgreens)
Sugar Free Malted Milk Ball
Sugar Free Caramel (Smuckers)
Instant Coffee Crystals
I couldn't decide which was my ❤ favorite.
