*Adjust sweetness based on your personal preference. Some protein powders are sweeter than others. Also, if you use regular egg whites in place of the vanilla eggwhites you may need more. I used 10 drops of liquid stevia in this recipe.
**If you do not have a large muffin cup pan, you can always make 8 small ones.
***Please note that baking times can vary based on protein powder used, altitude and age of your oven. Check every minute after 7 minutes until golden on top and still slightly soft.
