These protein muffins may not look like much, but they taste amazing! I’ve tried a lot of protein muffins and breads and they often turn out dry or just “off”. But these Vanilla Protein Muffins are moist and flavorful. In addition, they are gluten free, low carb, free of refined sugar and only require 5 ingredients.
Ingredients in Paleo Protein Muffins
These protein muffins require just 5 simple ingredients:
I recommend a plant based protein powder for this recipe. In my experience, these type of protein powders produce the best results. Any flavor protein powder will work.
Paleo Baking Flour
Paleo baking flour is an excellent, low carb flour. This baking mix contains a mixture of: almond flour, arrowroot flour, coconut flour and tapioca flour. If you don’t have access to this flour then substituting with any gluten free flour blend should work.
As another alternative, you can make your own Paleo Baking Flour. The best substitution I’ve found is: 1/2 cup packed Paleo Baking Flour (100g) = 1/2 cup almond flour (50g) + 4 Tbsp tapioca flour (28g) + 2 Tbsp coconut flour (16g).
This low carb, high protein recipe is great for a quick, grab’n go breakfast or a satiating snack. These muffins can be made as part of meal prep and eaten throughout the week. Furthermore, I suggest storing these Paleo protein muffins in the fridge. They last well for up to a week – perfect for meal prep.

High protein, 5 ingredient vanilla muffins. Perfect for a quick breakfast or satiating snack.
*The protein powder I used for this recipe was Aloha Vanilla Protein, however they have since changed their recipe and it is no longer Paleo because it contains rice protein. I still think it’s a good protein powder and bakes well, but if you’re wanting something grain-free then I don’t suggest using it.
