Chocolate Bran Muffins – IP Style

My coach gave me a few packages of the Ideal Protein Cereal Flakes and said “these are really gross, can you try to make a tasty muffin out of them?”.  Well we all know how the fat kid loves a good challenge so I said “heck yes I will” and this is what I have come up with:

Chocolate Bran Muffins

Ingredientsphoto 2photo 1
1 pkg IP Cereal Flakes
1 pkg IP Vanilla Drink
1 tbsp cocoa powder (0carb/0fat)
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tbsp splenda
1 tsp baking powder
2 egg whites, slightly beaten
4 tsp grapeseed oil
3 tbsp water

1. preheat oven to 350F, and prep a muffin tin with silicone liners or spray
2. Crush IP Cereal flakes until fine prior to opening the package
3. In a bowl, mix all dry ingredients together (Crushed cereal, vanilla drink, cocoa powder, cinnamon, splenda & baking powder)
4. In another bowl mix all wet ingredients together (beaten eggs, grapeseed oil & water)
5. Spoon batter in to 4 silicone muffin liners.  Fill remaining empty muffin cups 1/4 to 1/2 way up with water to allow muffins to bake evenly
6. Bake the muffins for 12 minutes until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.

Well coach, I think I did it, I took a gross cereal and made a tasty muffin!  Success!  I would be so bold as to say, these are my favorite muffins I have made on IP to date.  They don’t taste eggy or too wet or even too dry, they are just tasty.  As an added bonus, by adding the vanilla IP drink mix and creating two servings instead of one it brings the carb count down and makes it an unrestricted item!  I’m just going to throw it out there to the universe and say you’re welcome.
