Strawberry Mango Muffins

I came up with a recipe for Strawberry Mango muffins using fresh strawberries,  Protein Zone Mango Naked Protein Juice Smoothie drink, and oat bran.  The Naked brand protein juice smoothie is a fruit drink with whey protein and has no added sugar.  The drink contains mango, oranges, bananas, and apples.  This recipe yields approximately 18 muffins at 161 calories/muffin. 

Strawberry Mango Muffins

1 1/4 cups Protein Zone Mango Naked Protein Juice smoothie drink
1 egg
1/4 cup honey
1 cup fat free sour cream
1/4 cup preferred sweetener (or sugar)
1/4 cup natural applesauce
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 teaspoon vanilla
2/3 cup water
1 cup oat bran
1 cup whole wheat pastry flour
4 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 cup chopped walnuts
1/4 cup unsweetened shredded coconut (I used Bob's Red Mill)
2/3 cup Muesli Fusion An-ox cereal (with goji berries and blueberries)
2/3 cup chopped strawberries

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.  Combine the Protein Zone Mango drink, the egg, honey, preferred sweetener (or sugar), applesauce, vegetable oil, vanilla and water and stir to combine.

Mix oat bran, whole wheat pastry flour, baking powder, walnuts, coconut, and muesli cereal in separate large bowl.  Stir to combine.

Add smoothie mixture to the dry ingredients and stir to combine.

Wash and chop fresh strawberries.

Carefully fold chopped strawberries into batter and gently stir to combine.

Place muffin liners in pan and add batter until about 2/3 full.

Bake for approximately 25-30 minutes until cooked through. Remove from oven. Enjoy!
