Homemade presents are nicer to give and to receive. That’s why we love giving our favorite people a batch of protein muffins we’ve made ourselves. The best part is it doesn’t take a kitchen genius. Our Protein Brownie mix does the work for you. You’ll get perfect results every time.


  • Preheat the oven to 175° C.
  • Mix the baking mix with the other ingredients in a bowl.
  • Divide the batter evenly between the muffin cups.
  • Bake for 17-20 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the thickest part of a muffin comes out clean.
  • If you want, mix up a frosting with Whey Protein and cream cheese and spread it over the muffins after they've cooled.
  • Enjoy!
