Cinnamon Raisin Kamut Muffins

Serves: 8

Happy Thursday! If you read my post last Friday, then you will know about the wonderful experience I had with SunWarrior and a great lady named Stephanie who works there! Well, in our correspondence she happened to tell me that her office was on a juice fast for the week! I wouldn’t survive a day without solid food, especially since I am eating every 3-4 hours! However, I’m sure there is a good reason for this fast! So I thought I would dedicate this SunWarrior protein recipe to Stephanie and the members of her team doing the fast! I know they are going to be looking for some yummy, healthy treats that aren’t high in calories once they are done! I hope you enjoy them! 🙂

Fit Ingredients

  • 3/4c (73g) organic kamut flakes* (can sub oats, spelt or quinoa flakes)
  • 1/2 c granular sweetener
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 c (40g) raisins
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2c greek yogurt (113g) (or yogurt of choice)
  • 1 1/4c coconut milk
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2c + 2tbs (151g) liquid egg whites

********************************************************************************

  • 12 cup muffin tin
  • non stick spray

********************************************************************************

Directions

Pre heat your oven to 325 degrees. Spray 8 muffin cups with non stick spray. In a bowl mix your kamut flakes, protein, sweetener, cinnamon and baking powder.  Add in your yogurt, milk, vanilla and egg whites. Fold in your raisins. Bake for 20-22 minutes.

They came out so moist and flavorful! They had a great balance of cinnamon and sweetness! Plus they are very filling! I ate one (with a protein shake) before my workout for 3 days in a row!!! Delicious!!

*If you have never tried kamut flakes, they have a very distinct taste and texture. They are larger in size than oats, have a chewier texture when cooked and pack slightly more protein (great for us fitness buffs)! It took me a few trial recipes before I liked the flavor, but now I am in love with them!! P.S – I have always loved the texture though! So go ahead and expand your palate….you may just end up falling in love with them too! If not, make these with oats! They’re just as healthy and full of flavor!

      • You have no idea! It's been quite the experience....some positive, some not so positive.... but it is defiantly something I want to incorporate more into my life, however living on juice for a week, yeah not so much! So Saturday morning I will be looking forward to one of your delicious recipes....but every time I try to go look for one this overwhelming sense of hunger takes over lol! Thanks again and I cannot wait to try ALL your yum yums! :)

        • Well I hope you love them!! You will have to let me know what you think! I have never been on a juice fast, especially for a week!! I give you a lot of credit! But juicing, as part of your regular diet, is amazing....I need to incorporate it into my diet more! What kind of fruits and veggies were you juicing?

          • We've been juicing everything but the kitchen sink! I even thought about attempting to juice Cheetos but according to my co workers that would be cheating :) LOL I'll send you the recipes in your email :)

    These are in the oven right now.... with the impending hurricane I want to have something with protein that I can have for breakfast if we lose power for a few days. So I halved the recipe- which i KNOW is a no-no but i really just need a few... well they were water....and I halved it perfectly (i think) so anyway very liquidy but i threw them in the oven anyway.. i have faith!! i made your powerhouse muffins last weekend and they were wonderful so hoping for a miracle :P If not.. I learned my lesson!
