Superpower Cranberry-Pomegranate Hi-Protein Muffins

Too pretty to eat those!  Who cares, just dive in!  They were heavenly delicious!  Watching the portion?  For snacks: Women- eat one.  Men- eat two.  For Breakfast or a full meal: Women-eat 2 served with 1/3 cup of greek yogurt and 1/2 cup of fresh berries Men-eat 3 served with 2/3 cup of greek yogurt and 1 cup of fresh berries.  No rules in that, but you can modify the portion.  You control the portion, your body not mine.

What you need: (see picture below)
~Muffin Tin cups Pan ~Coconut or olive oil spray ~1/2 tsp baking soda ~1/2 baking powder ~1/4 tsp sea salt ~1 1/4 cup almond meal or flour (both are same thing) ~3 scoops of vanilla whey protein isolate ~3 whole eggs ~4 TBS water ~2 TBS melted coconut oil ~ ~15 or 20 drops of vanilla creme stevia liquid (add more or less to your taste) 1/3 cup of dried super cranberry & pomegranate ~ 2 tsp of unsweetened coconut chips or flakes or shredded ~2 TBS of chia seeds ~1/3 cup of walnuts, chopped ~mixing bowl ~ice cream scooper


Spray your muffin tin cups pan with coconut oil or olive oil.  Preheat the oven at 350 degrees.  In a mixing bowl, add in all ingredients except coconut flakes.  The mixture should look like cake batter (wet batter not like cookie dry dough).  If your batter seems too dry, add a little bit more water or melted coconut oil.  Add very little bit of that at a time slowly and stir to see if you have reached to the right consistency.) Use ice cream scooper to scoop the wet mixture into each muffin tin cup.  Top with few coconut flakes.  Bake for about 8-10 minutes.  Keep checking on these babies in the oven.  Use toothpick to insert in the center of each muffin cup to see if no wet batter have come out.  They will rise but don't be alarmed.  Its from leavening stuff (baking soda and baking powder).
Take it out and let it rest for a few minutes.  Serve warm with kerrygold butter or any grass-fed butter or coconut oil or coconut butter or peanut or almond butter.  The muffins may taste a little bit dry or not. That is why I like to add almond butter or butter with that.  Enjoy!!
See the wet batter in these cups.  Like cake batter.

Coconut flakes or chips
Rise, my babies!  Come to life!  We await on you!
