Berry and Ricotta Protein Muffins

berry ricotta protein muffins

Angela: Thanks to the awesome Alison at Paleo Foodies for this great muffin recipe. Muffins are a great one to make in bulk as an easy go-to snack. Much better than the store bought ones full of bad oils, sugar and wheat. Enjoy her high protein, sugar-free, gluten-free, paleo version…

Alison: It’s always handy to have a few healthy snacks in the pantry for when you need some pre-workout fuel or just feel like a healthy snack between meals. Healthy muffins are one of my go-to’s, and I recently discovered how well 180 Nutrition Superfood Protein goes in my base muffin recipe. I absolutely love berries and ricotta together, so I tried a berry and ricotta combo using coconut protein. They were delicious!


  • 3 x scoops 180 Nutrition Superfood Protein in coconut
  • 1⁄2 cup coconut flour
  • 4 x free range eggs
  • 1⁄2 fresh or frozen mixed berries
  • 1⁄2 cup ricotta (plus 1⁄4 cup for crumbling on top of the muffins)
  • 2 tablespoons raw honey (you could also use stevia or rice malt syrup)
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil (melted)
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1⁄4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • Pinch of salt


  • With a hand held blender, mix together all the wet ingredients (except the berries) until smooth
  • Add the dry ingredients and blend until combined. The mixture should be a thick pouring consistency. If it looks too dry you can add a drop of coconut water or coconut milk
  • Fold through the mixed berries gently
  • Spoon the mixture into pre-greased muffin trays or muffin cases. I grease with a little bit of coconut oil or butter
  • Top each muffin with a teaspoon of ricotta
  • Cook in the oven on 170 degrees celsius for 20-25 minutes (until golden brown)
  • A little tip – pre-heat the oven about 10 degrees hotter and then turn it down when you put the muffins in


  • Makes 12 small muffins

    How do you think they would freeze and thaw for kiddies lunches?

    Hi Justin,

    You could. I don’t think they would be as nice. I think the ricotta would go a funny texture. I would only keep in the freeze for 2 months.

    Hope that helps.

    Angela 🙂

    how do I store them? In fridge? and how many days

    Guy Lawrence says:

    The fridge will help last a few days. You can store them in the freezer too and defrost them as you need 🙂
