Protein Spice Muffins

  • 1/4 cup butter 4 tablespoons, softened
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup sour cream
  • 2 scoops Vital Protein Collagen Peptides
  • 1 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp ground clove
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt heaping tsp

Bacon Brown SugarStreusel

  • 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup bacon bits
  • 6 tablespoons butter cold butter


  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees and grease a muffin tin.
  • First prepare the crumb topping by whisking the flour, sugars, and cinnamon together. Cut the butter into small cubes and add to dry mixture. Cut in with a pastry cutter or two forks until mixture resembles fine crumbs. Stir in bacon bits. Set aside.
  • Next prepare the muffin batter. In a medium bowl cream together butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla and mix for about 1 minute. Add sour cream and mix until combined.
  • Add flour, protein (Vital Protein, Collagen Peptides) baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, and ground cloves, and salt to the bowl and mix until incorporated.
  • Divide batter between muffin tin molds (about 1/4 cup batter per mold), then divide the crumb topping between each of the muffins.
  • Bake for 12-16 minutes until tops of muffins no longer look wet and are golden. Serve warm or allow to cool first. (I absolutely love them warm with a tiny bit of butter on top!) To store extras, wrap each muffin separately with plastic wrap and store chilled or at room temperature.
