Where Does The Butterscotch Flavour Come From?
I wanted this recipe to be filling and easy to make so I opted to use a vegan Butterscotch Protein Powder. The protein will help keep you satisfied and full, and it’s the most time effective way to include that delicious rich butterscotch flavour into these muffins.
