Muffin Top Monday

Check out this guy!


He’s just one of the many bodybuilders we’ve heard about who swears by using coconut oil. Clearly, he is doing something right! In honor of Men’s Health Month and Father’s Day, (Hi Dad! Can’t wait to see you tomorrow!) we’ve dedicated June’s Muffin Top Monday to our favorite guys everywhere. We can’t promise that your results will be as good as Dave Bohr, but we can promise that today’s muffins are chocked full of guy-friendly goodness!


Cinnamon Apple High Protein Muffins


3/4 cup oatmeal
1/4 cup Oat Bran
6 Egg Whites
1/2 scoop (15g) of Vanilla Protein Powder
1/4 teaspoon of Baking Soda
1 teaspoon of Splenda
1 tbsp of Kelapo Coconut Oil
1 diced Apple
2 Tbsp of Unsweetened Apple Sauce
1/2 teaspoon of Cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon of Vanilla Extract



1. In a blender, mix all the ingredients (except for the diced apple), blend until the mix thickens
2. Add the diced apple and stir
3. Poor the mix in muffin liners or greased muffin cooking pan (with coconut oil of course).  Cook at 350 degrees F about 30 minutes or until cooked through.


* The recipe only makes 3 muffins, so I quadrupled it and added a crumbly topping made with Kelapo. Yum! Enjoy!

    These muffins look delicious! Now I have a question, it says that it only makes three muffins, so if I want to make a dozen (and quadruple the recipe as it states under the picture) then I need 24 egg whites?
    Thanks for sharing such a good recipe!

      If you have lots of eggs on hand and you are looking for that high protein muffin, then yes you will need 24 egg whites. If you aren’t looking for a really high protein muffin and a few egg whites plus the protein powder is enough for you, you can substitute applesauce for the egg whites. 1/4 cup of applesauce is used to replace one egg. Thanks Ana!

    I know this is old, but it’s new to me. Thanks for mentioning me here, and yes I still use coconut oil as a healthy MCT choice when dieting, despite the controversy.
