Pecan Praline Mini Protein Muffins featuring Premier Protein

This post is sponsored by Premier Protein®. I'm excited to share this new recipe featuring Premier Protein 100% Whey Protein Powder with you.

Flying this week to New Orleans for the Your Weight Matters National Convention. It's not a long flight but I have a layover without switching planes so I'll need little something more protein packed and sturdier than a packet of peanuts. I plan on drinking a Premier Protein Shake on the shuttle to the airport so BOOM with 30 grams of protein in each shake right there I already have a great start to my day and then in my carry-on bag I'll have a couple of these delicious Pecan Praline Mini Protein Muffins.

What's in my carry-on bag?

and a couple of these Pecan Praline Mini Protein Muffins

Pecan Pralines or "praw-leen" as the locals call them are a traditional confection full of sugar, butter, cream and pecans. In New Orleans, it used to be a tradition for young ladies to make pralines before going to a ball and then enjoy them with their beaux (escort) at their homes afterward. These protein packed muffins have the same nutty caramel flavors of those yummy Pecan Pralines without the sugar shock. I hope you give them a try.

Shelly's Pecan Praline Mini Protein Muffins

1 Egg, beaten
3 Tablespoons Milk
2 Tablespoons Sugar Free Caramel Syrup (find in coffee aisle I used this)
1 Tablespoon Canola Oil
3 Tablespoons Multigrain Pancake Mix, dry
2 Tablespoons Almond Flour
1 Tablespoon Sugar Free Butterscotch Pudding Mix, dry
1/4 cup Premier Protein Vanilla 100% Whey Protein Powder
Pinch salt
Chopped Pecans for top

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, almond flour, pudding mix, Premier Protein Vanilla 100% Whey Protein Powder and salt.

Bake at 350 for 13-14 minutes. Edges will be golden, tops dry (toothpick test: stick a toothpick into the center of your muffin. If there is wet batter still on the toothpick, it needs more time in the oven. If it comes out clean, your muffins are done! )

Hey Shelly, It's Katt. Can any protein powder be used? These look great and I look forward to giving them a try. :)

Michelle "Shelly" said...

Not any but a whey protein or whey isolate would work. The 100% whey of Premier give them that height.

Thanks! I use Body Fortress which is whey protein isolate, so it should work. :)
