Irene’s Power Muffins

Want to know the secret breakfast from a pro personal trainer?
 
The secret breakfast of a pro personal trainer!
 

One of my dear friends Maria has had a remarkable weight loss and body transformation over the past year. A couple weeks ago, I got to see her for the first time in a couple months, and her jaw-dropping transformation blew my mind. I of course drilled Maria for all of her secrets. 

 

 

Besides working out like a beast and eating healthy, she has a phenomenal trainer, Irene, that she sees every week. This awesome recipe came from Irene. Maria said she swore by these power muffins….easy to make, low calorie, protein packed, filling, AND delicious.

 

I HAD to give them a try. She was right! I have been making a batch of these every week to have in the morning, or before workout sessions. I love everything about them. Thanks Irene!

    I tried these and they are wonderful. Anxiously awaiting results!

    I don’t have vanilla protein powder- would these work with Chocolate protein powder?

  4. Does anyone have nutritional facts for this by chance? Thx!

    • It all depends on what add-ins you use or not. So…if you add in the craisins and chia seed like I did, the stats are as follows… 135 cals, 26 carbs, 2g fat, 5g protein and 4g fiber. But if you add in nuts, or leave out the chia seed…. the numbers will change. Check out a recipe building site to calculate your creation:)

    • Thank you for this – I was also wondering. I’ve never been able to find a site that helps me calculate the nutrition info for a homemade recipe – can you suggest one?

    • YES! myfitnesspal.com has a great one! You have to sign up for a FREE account. I use that one all the time :)

  5. I will definitely be trying this recipe. I will also try 2 make it gluten free 4 my mom. I’ll let u know how it turns out.

  6. blend all ingredients by blender or hand mix..??
    Nd to beat egg white till fluffy 1st or just simply mix them..??

  8. These are so great!!! There were super easy to make and they taste wonderful! I love that you can add in what you like and I made a small batch for me with what I like and another small batch for my picky husband! Thanks for this recipe – it will definately be a staple in our home :)

    As a diabetic trying to find a “good” muffin with no added sugar and packed with protien these are fantastic. and my 4 year old son loves them too

  10. Just made with chocolate protein powder and walnuts!-Delish!

  11. hi!! my first batch of these are in the oven now…can’t wait to taste them! thanks for this recipe. i was wondering if you had any fun or interesting ways to use the egg yolks that are left over? a healthy custard recipe or something like that? thanks!!!

    • I hope you love them :) I don’t have a recipe… but I like where you are going with a healthy custard recipe!

      • alejandra says:

        so i didn’t make custard, but i used the egg yolks from a second batch i just made as egg glaze for sugar cookies i made with my little boy. we had a blast coloring the yokes, painting the cookies and watching them bake. maybe not SUPER healthy hehe, but definitely a lot of fun and at least the egg yolks didn’t totally go to waste!

  12. Hi,
    I made these are they’re SUPER dry, like hard to swallow dry. Help! Maybe more bananas?
    Thanks so much!

  13. Heather says:

    What kind of protein powder did you use and how big is each scoop? Thanks!

    • Hey Heather! I used Trader Joe’s Whey protein. I believe most protein powders come with a standard scoop. I think 30 grams.

  14. Can I replace the banans with apple sauce?? I HATE BANANAS!!! The taste, smell and texture make me gag :S weird I know! Or should I use applesauce/yogurt?? Any suggestions???

  15. Ana Romero says:

    Hi Corey! Does it matter what type of protein powder you use (I generally use a soy and lactose free protein powder)? Also, some “scoops” might measure differently-does that matter ? Thank you!

    • I am sure any protein powder will work great. I have only used whey, but I really don’t see that influencing the recipe all that much. The scoop I used measures at about 15.5 grams. I think all the scoop are similar, so I wouldn’t worry too much about that either :) I hope that helsp Ana! XO

  16. I just made these and I love them! I have a house full of student athletes so I added a tablespoon of ground flax seed for their joints. I also cooked them in the little cake pop maker with the interchangeable plates (used mini cupcake one). 4 min and I had 7 done! I love this….. Hope the kids like them… I’m already thinking of other whole fruits I can puree up in these muffins!

  17. Are the oats in this recipe quick cooking? Do you think I could sub for gluten free rolled oats? that’s what I happen to have on hand.

    • I used quick oats when I have made it. I have never used gluten free rolled oats. Please let us know how it turns out :)

  18. what is the nutritional value and why isnt it provided,?

    • Each muffin can vary depending on what add-ins you use. I like to you the recipe builder on My Fitness Pal to find out the stats :)

  19. I HATE oatmeal, but this recipe sounds awesome! Do you think these would taste okay if I didn’t use oatmeal??

  20. They look great and I can’t wait to make them! Can you tell us the Nutritional information? Thanks!

  21. How do you mix it? With a blender? Thanks!
