Cookies and Cream Protein Muffins Gluten Free Healthy Protein Packed Recipe | ahealthylifeforme.comI have something to tell you, I suck at squatting.  Are you wondering what the heck I am talking about?  Well you see I use to think I knew how to do a squat and I could do a lot of them.  I actually released a 30 day squat challenge workout here on the blog.

But oh no I have recently found out I suck at squatting, you see I started CrossFit last summer, and in CrossFit there is A LOT of squatting, and not just squatting with your hands all over the place, oh no, they put a barbel with weights in your hand and then tell you to put it over your head and squat.  The horrid movement is called an overhead squat, and I suck at it.  Why?  Because I am not the most mobile person {years of running and spinning will do that} and when you add that weight and ask your body to squat, it sometimes {all the time for me} can’t do what you are asking.

Why am I rambling to you about squatting when all you want to know is how to make these delicious muffins because I am sore!  Yep, sore.  You see I have been doing a lot of mobility squatting to try to improve, and it has left my legs a quivering sore mess.

I always depend on my diet to help me and my sore muscles recover.  Protein powder is a big part of my recovery.  I am loving the Isopure Cookies & Cream Whey Protein Isolate.  It tastes delicious, and I can use it my baking.  These muffins are packed with protein, low carb, low sugar and tons of yummy flavor.  Isopure Whey Protein Isolate comes with glutamine, vitamins, minerals and nutrients to keep your muscles tough, and lean.  Perfect in the morning when you are on the go, or a quick treat after a particularly hard workout, like oh say squatting.

I hope you try out the recipe and let me know what you think.

    1. Becca, you could make them as a cake. Not positive on baking time, you will have to monitor to make sure the edges of the cake don’t dry out.

    These sound great! I’m a big fan of baking with whey. And squatting… I definitely have a love/hate relationship with squats, but squats and lunges work those glutes the best! 🙂

    1. I agree squatting is a necessary evil. Just did front squats today and I hated while I was doing it but so thrilled that I did. I hope you try the muffins they are great!
