LowCarb Protein Muffins / Mini Gugelhupf – Basic Recipe – Grundrezept

I made these extremely delicious protein cupcakes a few days ago​. I was very excited to find out that they were nothing like the other protein cupcakes or a cake they tried. The great thing about them is that you can add some more ingredients like Cocoa, Whey, Banana or other things to make the dough taste a bit different(;

So here’s the basic recipe:


  • 1 egg
  • 2 large table spoons of Cottage cheese (100-150g Magerquark)
  • 20 g of coconut flower
  • Some water or milk
  • 1 teaspoon of baking powder

– My protein flavdrops

– sweetener

– cinnamon


  1. Mix all ingredients in the bowl and stir them until you get a quite smooth dough
  2. Add some water in case your dough isn’t creamy enough
  3. Give the dough in some silicon baking forms. I used 6-8 mini cupcake forms.
  4. Put it in the oven for about 15 minutes at 180°c
  5. Give them enough time to cool down until you try to get them out of the forms


  • When I first made them they were a bit dry. I guess that’s because of the coconut flour. I tried it with a banana in addition and 5 g of coconut flour more. Then it was very fluffy and tasty.
  • The dough is for three large cupcakes or six – eight small ones
  • You may add some protein powder to increase the amount of protein in your macros
