Gingerbread Protein Muffins
These quick and easy Gingerbread Protein Muffins are a spicy-sweet, cozy grab-n-go option for breakfast or snack that is healthy and gluten free!
In my mind, there is nothing as cozy as gingerbread. From the sweet, rich flavors of molasses to the punch of ginger that wakes up your senses and warms you to the kiss of cinnamon that swirls it all together in comfy-food goodness.
I absolutely love that I can still enjoy holiday flavors without the guilt and even get my fair share of protein. Not to mention, the fact that these have just a little over 100 calories per muffin, and no flour, oil, butter or sugar! I’m telling you, you have to try these muffins for yourself! You (and your family) will be so happy you did!
Now, go ahead – pour up a steaming cup of Joe, snuggle up in a cozy, wooly, blanket and devour one… or a few of these scrumptious, wholesome Gingerbread Protein Muffins. I know you guys are going to love them and when you give them a try, be sure to comment and let me know what you think.

These look great! I don’t have a scoop for my protein powder. Please could you tell me what an equivalent measure would be for 1 scoop?
Use about 1/4 cup, or if you’re measuring with a scale, between 25-28 grams or so. Hope you enjoy!
These do sound like they’d be really yummy! And would be a good snack to take along to eat after a work out.
I’ve used Renew Life probioitcs for years and love them! They definitely are a quality brand.
And the muffins look delicious. I love gingerbread and pairing that flavor with a muffin is a great idea!
I will have to check out that supplement, I know we will be dealing with some holiday bloat too. These muffins look delicious! I love gingerbread, it is such a great holiday flavor.
Thank you for this protein recipe! I use your recipes for the majority of my cooking and am always on the look out for more ways to incorporate protein into my cooking. Please keep these coming 🙂
That is so awesome!! I hope you love it as much as my husband and I did!
Gingerbread muffins- do you have to use stevia or can you substitute for honey.
I use honey in lots of my muffin recipes and it works great. I haven’t tried it in this one, but I think it would totally work. Enjoy!
