Blueberry Protein Muffins
These Blueberry Protein Muffins are a great low calorie, gluten free, protein packed breakfast to help kick start your metabolism.
You know a great way to jumpstart you day is to have breakfast and a breakfast that is low calorie, packed full of fiber and protein is the best; these Blueberry Protein Muffins fit that bill . Not only does breakfast fill you up and give you energy through your morning, research suggest that having a significant amount of protein within 30 minutes from waking ignites your metabolism and you burn more calories throughout the morning. I usually opt for oatmeal or egg whites in the morning, but these muffins are a nice switch. I usually have two, which totals 252 calories and is enough to sustain me through my morning and my morning workout.
Protein muffin recipes that I have tried in the past have a rubber texture and not a lot of flavor. I never wanted to make the recipe again, which was a disappointment.
I wanted to come up with a recipe that I would enjoy eating while keeping it gluten free, and low in calorie. After several batches I decided to add in almond meal, orange zest, and a few tablespoons of honey to give the muffins more weight, flavor and a better texture. Now that I have my recipe, my refrigerator usually contains a container of these muffins.
