Something about sprinkles...they make any baked good look unbelievable tasty! Maybe it's the fun colors? Or something about childhood birthday parties? Regardless, they are very important ingredient in theses Confetti Mini Muffins!
These may look like they are full of butter, sugar, and flour...but they actually contain none of those ingredients!! (ok...a little sugar in the sprinkles...but we all know that calories in sprinkles don't count...)
The ingredients might surprise you...
ABOUTTIME Birthday Cake Whey, white canned beans, unsweetened applesauce, egg substitute, unsweetened vanilla almond milk, vanilla, baking powder, sweetener of choice, and of course sprinkles!!
*You can use chickpeas, garbanzo, navy, great northern, or butter beans*
*any milk will do*
*real egg works too*
Drain and rinse your beans first. Then puree the beans, egg, applesauce, milk, and vanilla. Depending on the type of bean, you may want to add a little extra liquid to blend smooth.
Stir in remaining ingredients. Everything except the sprinkles that is!
I used a mini muffin pan, but you can absolutely make regular sized ones! Spray your pan very well with non stick spray or use muffin liners.
You can fill the cups pretty full because these won't rise much.
Don't forget the sprinkles!!!
Seriously! The sprinkles are not optional!!
How cute are those!?
I absolutely love baking with beans. They give the muffins such a great texture and replace the flour used in most recipes. I promise they do not taste like beans!
These little guys are packed with 32 grams of protein!
Such a great breakfast! Since they are bite sized, they are great for on-the-go!
Each little muffin is only about 18 calories!!
Quick math... All 12 for only 215 calories!
Ya know those little pre-packaged mini muffins you buy at the grocery store...
You only get 4-5 muffins and it'll cost you 250 calories, 14 grams of fat, 17 grams of sugar, and only 3 grams of protein...no thank you!!
These beauties will actually keep you full and satisfied!
Only 2 grams of sugar from the applesauce, no flour, and gluten free (double check your protein).
They also freeze great so feel free to make a quadruple batch!!
