High Protein Mini Muffin Cereal

Mini muffin cereal? Am I for real? Babes. This has to be one of THE BEST recipes that I have made in a long time. Not only do the muffins come out super soft and fluffy, but making them mini and in cereal form just makes it that much more exciting! These muffins can of corse be made as normal muffins if you’re in a rush! This protein mini muffin cereal is really a delicious high protein breakfast option!

With my high protein cookie cereal as being one of my most popular recipes, a lot of you have been requesting other high protein breakfast cereals that are quick and easy to make. I love muffins, and always have! However, traditional varieties are often loaded with simple carbs and not nearly enough protein. This often leaves us feeling hungry for longer, and not feeling fully satisfied.

Mini muffin cereal or protein muffins?

These mini muffins are honestly adorable, and totally worth it if you’re someone who likes to have muffins drenched in milk!HOWEVER, if you personally just prefer having fluffy ‘normal’ sized muffins, this recipe works as well. I personally prefer them ‘normal’ size, but my family prefer them in cereal form!

How do you make Brownie Cookie Cereal? 


Oat flour: I make my own by blending oats in a high speed blender to make a flour consistency.

Vanilla protein powder: Make sure to use a protein powder that you ACTUALLY LIKE

Granulated sweetener of choice: I used a calorie free monk fruit sweetener, but any granulated sugar could work.

Baking soda & baking powder: To allow your cookies to rise a little

Strawberry Yoghurt: I used greek strawberry flavored yoghurt

Milk of choice: I used almond milk, but you can use any milk of preference

Eggs: I use organic and free range

Vanilla extract: To add that delicious vanilla flavour while not being over powering!

Chocolate chips: optional but highly recommended!
