Easy Blueberry Protein Muffins

6 Muffins130 cals

Inspiration for this recipe comes from our best friend here in New England, Dunkin’ Donuts! The unhealthy blueberry muffin will now be known as a healthy Protein Blueberry Muffins under 150 calories.

Who doesn’t want a fresh blueberry muffin every time they see one?!

All you need to do for this one is a mixing bowl. Add into it 3 large whole eggs, 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract, 1 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar, 2 teaspoons of lemon juice, 1/2 cup of unsweetened apple sauce, 1/2 cup of coconut flour, 1 1/2 scoops of vanilla protein powder, 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder, 1/2 teaspoon of salt, an optional 1 tablespoon of sweetener, and 1/2 cup of fresh blueberries!

Mix everything together for a couple minutes or until it’s smooth.

If your mix comes out a little too thick, just add an extra egg white in there and you should be good.

Blueberry Muffin Size

Evenly distribute your mix into a muffin pan. If you want mini or jumbo muffins, that’s up to you.

You can also line your spots for easy clean up but that’s up to you too!

Top each protein blueberry muffin with a couple blueberries and throw them in the oven on 375F/190C for around 15-20 minutes. You’ll see them rise up, that’s when they’re done.

This healthier spin on a classic that’s usually overpriced, is an easy one. These protein blueberry muffins are DELICIOUS!

A couple tips I should throw out there:

  1. They won’t come out dry as long as you don’t bake too long.
  2. Coconut flour is packed with fiber! This recipes ends up with 24 grams of fiber. If you go by Net Carbs, you’re only looking at 7.5g per muffin.
  3. Prepping these for the week? Toss them in the microwave for around 10-20 seconds before you eat them and throw a little sliver of butter on them. Mouthwatering!

    Made a variation of this today with cherries instead of blue berries, chocolate protein instead of vanilla and a tbs of cocoa powder. Turned out really well.

      Thanks for the feedback Bill! Glad you liked them.

    I just made these muffins and did not come as a tasty as I expected- not sure if it was protein powder or what 🙁 Also, when I mixed mine together it was very dry and not the same consistency as the video showed.

      Hi Monica! How was the taste? It could definitely be the powder. If you try it again, I would try another powder and also add in a bit more liquid to get a more similar texture to mine. Start with 1/4 cup of apple sauce and go from there! Hope this helps.
