These blueberry muffins have a lot of healthy going on. They are more than just blueberry – we are talking, gluten-free, dairy-free, banana, protein muffins! This recipe is so easy with just a few extra ingredients to make them a healthy power snack.
With a few healthy swaps you have some pretty tasty and healthy muffins! I was so excited to create this recipe because I needed a change in my morning food routine. Until now that consisted of a KIND bar and banana (literally every day, even on weekends and the morning of my wedding!). Over the past year I’ve found I need to add a few things to my diet, and my blog – better breakfast recipes and snacks. The gluten-free part took a couple tries to get the taste right, but now I’m confident you will love these little protein muffins.
Here’s the line-up…
Cows Milk à Almond Milk
Flour à Quick Oats, milled
Flour à Protein Powder (acts as a thickening agent)
One not so healthy ingredient that I decided not to swap was the white sugar. There isn’t that much and you could totally use honey instead if you wanted. I just felt these muffins were already super healthy, so what’s a little sugar.
Diary-free is also another checkbox on this recipe. The recipe uses almond milk and a dairy free protein powder. I am intolerant of Whey Protein and many people are. PlantFusion is my go-to protein powder and it comes in multiple flavors is vegan and low in sugar.
I’m pretty pumped to add these blueberry muffins into my routine for a healthy snack. They are great for a pre or post workout boost or a healthy breakfast. We all know breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and I for one can’t skip it or my stomach will literally start crying out to me, so hopefully this recipe will help some of you get some nutrients to start off your day.
