Salted Caramel Power Muffins Recipe

September 25th, 2018

Start the day with our vegan and gluten-free power muffins—a little bit sweet, a little bit savory, and the perfect way to get some extra greens into your diet. Every bite stays moist thanks to apple sauce and banana, salted caramel protein powder (so delish!) adds indulgence, and a handful of spinach ups the nutrition factor.

Protein Powder Salted Caramel Spinach Muffins

Yield: 12 muffins
Active Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 50 minutes


2 cups spinach
1 ripe banana
1 cup apple sauce
1 ½ cups unsweetened almond milk
½ cup brown sugar
¼ cup coconut oil, melted
1 ½ teaspoons vanilla extract
1 ½ cup almond flour
1 cup coconut flour
½ cup tapioca flour
2 scoops Vega Protein and Greens, Salted Caramel
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
½ teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 teaspoon sea salt


Preheat oven to 350°F and line a muffin tin with liners. Pulse spinach a few times in a food processor, then add banana, apple sauce, almond milk, brown sugar, coconut oil, and vanilla; process until well blended.

Add almond flour, coconut flour, tapioca flour, protein powder, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, and sea salt in a large bowl; whisk. Add wet ingredients and stir until combined. Portion batter into prepared muffin tin.

Bake 25 to 30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center of a muffin comes out clean. Cool muffins completely. Refrigerate in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
