Muffin Tops

18 Jun

Under normal conditions, a muffin top is something I would definitely not want to be associated with…

but in this special case, I want to have a muffin top forever.

This is a super simple recipe that can be adapted easily to do different flavors and variations. I’ve done it with blueberries added in to make a blueberry muffin top and also dried apple slices to make apple pie muffin tops. It’s fun to experiment!

Giant Muffin Top with Buttercream Peanut Butter Protein Frosting

  • 1/4 cup oat flour (I just blended oats in my magic bullet blender)
  • 1/2 cup pure pumpkin
  • 3 large egg whites, whipped
  • splash of almond milk
  • dash of stevia, vanilla extract, and cinnamon

Comine all ingredients and put in a sprayed, microwave-safe bowl that is on the bigger side. The bigger the bowl on the bottom, the larger your muffin top will be. Microwave for 6-7 minutes. (this will vary on microwaves)

Buttercream Peanut Butter Protein Frosting

  • 1/2 serving vanilla protein powder (a thick and creamy one, preferably a casein blend)
  • 2 tbsp peanut flour
  • almond milk

Combine dry ingredients and add almond milk slowly until desired frosting consistency is reached.

*my protein powder in the picture above was cookies and cream, hence the cookie chunk in there, ha ha.

    Hahahaha I love the pictures of muffin tops. They always make me laugh when I see them in magazines about how not to dress. Your actual muffin top looks freaking delicious though. If there was ever a good kind of muffin top that would be it.
