Collagen Coconut Muffins Recipe

homemade coconut collagen muffins

A sweet treat for breakfast? Yes, please! These coconut muffins are perfect to grab for a quick morning bite when you’re on the go. In fact, if you bake the whole batch in advance, you’ll have a dozen breakfasts prepped for future mornings. Sounds sweet, right?

Another perk: some of the ingredients include coconut oil, honey and almond milk, but the standout is the addition of Vital Proteins Collagen Creamer® in Coconut. Not only does the coconut oil in this recipe provide each muffin with healthy fats, but so does the coconut milk powder, which is found in our Coconut Collagen Creamer.

Vital Proteins® Collagen Creamer™

Vital Proteins® Collagen Creamers™ are paleo-friendly, gluten-free, soy-free and don’t contain any artificial sweeteners or added sugars. Available in Coconut, as well as Vanilla and Mocha flavours, our collagen creamers are bioavailable thanks to the addition of our signature collagen peptides, meaning they can be easily digested and absorbed by the body.

Use our Collagen Creamers to add extra creaminess, collagen and flavour to your morning coffee, or get creative with your baking and try a collagen coffee creamer recipe.

The Health Benefits of Coconut

Coconut makes a great addition to your favourite recipes, as it’s naturally high in fibre and antioxidants. It’s a source of good fats and it’s rich in MCTs (medium-chain triglycerides), which can help to provide your body with energy.

Our Coconut Collagen Creamer also provides you with the benefits of collagen peptides, with 10g found in every serving. Collagen is the glue that holds everything together, from your skin, hair and nails to your bones, ligaments and tendons, so there are many benefits to including collagen in your routine.

This collagen coffee creamer recipe for tasty coconut muffins is just one way you can do this…
