Raspberry Protein Oatmeal Muffins
I knew I wanted to make oatmeal muffins with banana for added sweetness but I wanted a little bit of a tart flavor to balance it out, raspberries are perfect for this (plus we always have a ton thanks to it being our family’s favorite).
Fresh Raspberries vs Frozen Raspberries
I used frozen raspberries in this recipe. What I did was pop them in the microwave for 30 seconds to soften them up, but not long enough to make them mushy.
Fresh is always best for baking, but for the price of a few raspberries, I can get a large bag of frozen.
What makes this a protein muffin?
Protein muffins vary in how many grams of protein are included. This protein muffins recipe has 7 grams per muffin, thanks to the added protein powder, hemp seeds, and greek yogurt.
Every little bit adds up.
Most muffin recipes are only 2-3 grams of protein, depending on the recipe of course, so this is a nice added boost (especially for picky eaters who hate protein).
Can I Add Protein Powder to Baked Goods?
Yes! I always find that whey protein powder bakes so well but for this recipe, I used Blessed Protein Powder.
I have used both vanilla and vanilla chai, vanilla chai is my favorite.
Muffins or Oat Cups?
Honestly, this recipe can be interchanged for oat muffins or baked oatmeal cups.
They resemble more of a cup as they don’t rise high and mighty like a traditional muffin.
They’re dense, hearty, and delicious.
Are Oatmeal Muffins Healthy?
This particular recipe for oatmeal muffins is healthy, so no worries there.
1 muffin has roughly 149 calories, 20g carbohydrates, 7g protein, and 5g fat. It has has 3g of fiber and only 6 grams of sugar.
What does this mean? This muffin will not only keep you full but will also help stabilize your blood sugars, which prevents a crash and a loss of immediate energy.
How to Store Oat Muffins?
I’m often asked if these healthy oatmeal muffins should go in the fridge, and the answer is yes.
I have found when I store them on the counter they get soft and mushy after a day or two.
Store them in the fridge and this is avoided.
I simply pop them in a resealable bag and they don’t dry out.
How to Make Protein Muffins

Hot tip: This cookie scoop lets me pour the same amount of batter into each tin and makes baking so much easier. I use the big one.
