Muffin Ingredients

  • 1 cup raw oats
  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 2 scoop Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard 100% Whey, French Vanilla Creme
  • ½ cup coconut sugar
  • ½ cup extra virgin coconut oil
  • 4 egg
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1 apple
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp nutmeg
  • ¼ cup unsweetened almond milk

Frosting Ingredients

  • ¾ cup Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard 100% Whey, French Vanilla Creme
  • ⅔ cup nonfat plain Greek yogurt
  • 4 tbsp milk (2% fat)


  1. For muffins: Preheat your oven to 350 F (180 C).
  2. Add all ingredients into a mixing bowl and, using a spoon, combine into a smooth cake batter.
  3. Equally divide the mixture between 10 muffin cases and bake for 15-20 minutes until cooked through. Simple and delicious!
  4. For frosting: In a small mixing bowl, combine the casein and the yogurt.
  5. Slowly add in the milk until you reach your desired frosting consistency.
  6. Once the cupcakes have completely cooled (be patient!), you can pop the frosting on with a spoon. If you're feeling fancy, you can use a piping bag and nozzle!
  7. Tip: Go wild with your toppings—this is where you can get creative! I added chia seeds and chopped almonds for an extra crunch. You could use dark chocolate chips, coconut flakes, or even fresh fruit. Get creative and add your own twist!
