Gluten-Free Strawberry And Lemon Poppyseed Protein Muffins

Makes 8 large muffins or 12-14 small muffins

*gluten-free, dairy-free, refined sugar free

Ingredients:

  • 4 cups ripe strawberries, quartered
  • ½ cup + 2 tbsp melted coconut oil
  • ¾ cup honey, maple syrup, or agave
  • 2 tsp kosher salt
  • Zest of 4 lemons, plus ¼ cup lemon juice
  • ¾ cup plain coconut yogurt or whole milk Greek yogurt
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp poppy seeds or chia seeds
  • 4 eggs
  • ¾ cup Organifi Complete Protein
  • 1 ¼ cup gluten-free flour mix
  • ¼ cup almond flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder

Instructions:

1. Preheat the oven to 350° F and line a muffin pan with paper liners.
2. Combine the strawberries in a medium saucepan and simmer over medium heat for about 15 minutes, cook until the strawberries begin to loosen and become jammy. Remove from heat and refrigerate until needed.
3. In a large bowl, whisk the coconut oil, honey, salt, lemon zest, lemon juice, yogurt and vanilla until combined. Add the poppy seeds and eggs and whisk.
4. Add the protein powder, flour, almond flour and baking powder and whisk until combined.
5. Fold in a ½ cup of the cooked strawberries into the batter until just evenly distributed. Scoop the batter into the prepared muffin pan, filling almost all the way to the top. Spoon over a few remaining strawberries with their juices over each muffin batter top and bake for 20 to 23 minutes, until the muffins just barely spring back to the touch.

*These keep nicely, wrapped well at room temperature, for up to 2 days.
