My favorite season and not just because of how beautiful it is, but because of the foods that come in season.  Apples, apples, apples.  Love them.

I always drag the hubs to the orchard and we head home with more apples than we could every use, or that is what he says.  I take it as a challenge to use up every last apple and enjoy every last bite.

Be prepared to see a few apple recipes popping up here, so you better head to the orchard yourself, so you don’t miss a single delicious bite.

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day.  And a breakfast packed full of protein is the best way to get your body moving.  No seriously, you need to eat protein in the morning to help jumpstart that metabolism and get the blood pumping.

A moving metabolism is a metabolism that is burning up those calories and helping us to function at our best.  Brain and body, sometimes I might need a bit of caffeine to help jump-start my brain.  Just saying.

Make a batch up of these super simple muffins, that are loaded with protein and healthy ingredients and enjoy your breakfast and your morning.

  1. Can you please let me know how many grams in total you used for the protein powder? Scoop sizes vary greatly! Thanks!

    Hi Amy, this is a very cool recipe. Breakfast is the most important in my daily routine and having muffins with protein is the way to go. You know that most muffins are sweet and fatty but these ones are very cool. Didn’t you try to use Strawberry instead of Vanilla Whey Protein Powder? Thanks.

  3. Hi I’m wondering what is the purpose of the applesauce? I’d love to make these but applesauce makes me gag haha. Thanks!

    1. Isabela, it is acting as a binder and adding moisture in this recipe. With the fresh apples it is also great for adding flavor. You could use a stick of butter, and 2 whole eggs {remove egg whites from recipe}. Hope this helps.
