Skinny Blueberry Protein Muffins


A blueberry muffin with 8g protein & only 2.5g fat... yes please!

A blueberry muffin & a coffee is one of my favourite grab & go treats, however standard shop bought "skinny" muffins can still clock up to a whopping 450 calories! They also rarely contain any protein. Therefore, I thought i'd have a little play in the kitchen & came up with these! They're also gluten free too.

Servings: Makes 9 muffins

Macros per muffin:

80kcal / 8g protein / 8.5g carbs / 2.4g fat / 2.7g fibre

Ingredients:

60g coconut flour

60g vanilla protein powder

60ml semi skimmed milk

5g coconut oil

60g apple sauce

1 egg

80g egg whites

30g Sukrin Gold (brown sugar substitute available in the baking section as Sainsbury's, Tesco & Waitrose - you can substitute this for 15g stevia if desired)

1/2 tsp vanilla extract

1/2 tsp baking powder

60g blueberries

Instructions:

1. Preheat oven to 180c

2. Place 9 muffin cases in a muffin tin.

3. In a blender add all ingredients except blueberries & mix well.

4. Stir in blueberries by hand.

5. Pour mix into muffin cases - fill to top as muffins will only rise slightly.

6. Bake in oven for 15 mins (or until golden brown on top) - you almost want the muffins to be slightly under done as they come out of the oven to stop them drying out as they cool.

7. Remove from oven & place on a wire rack to cool.

8. Eat! :-)
