Blueberry Protein Muffins

Not feeling summer ready yet?  I am sure the recent long weekend full of drinking beer and BBQ hopping did not Blueberry Protein Muffinshelp.  I definitely took a couple of steps back this weekend but I find that having food prepared ahead of time allows me to get back on track quickly.  Otherwise I will fall into the “I am still hungover from the weekend and too tired to cook food so I’ll just get a bagel, oh and since I got a bagel this morning I might as well get takeout for lunch because I already started my day off on the wrong foot” routine.  Anyways, my point is that muffins are easy to take on the go and I have a new “healthified” recipe so I am sharing it.  I have been on a blueberry kick lately and am thrilled that I finally figured out how to bake healthy muffins that don’t taste dry!  These are only 60 calories per muffin and super low in fat.  Exact nutrition per muffin includes 1g Fat, 8g Carbs, 5g Protein.  So a couple of these are a perfect snack on the go…because I can’t just eat one 😉

You will need:

1/2 banana

1 egg, 2 whites

3/4 cup oat flour (blend oats until they are flour consistency)

1 scoop vanilla protein powder

2 tablespoons unsweetened applesauce

1/2 cup vanilla Greek yogurt (I use Dannon Light&Fit)

Dash of baking soda

Dash of cinnamon

1/2 cup blueberries

Directions:

Preheat oven 350F

Blend wet ingredients then mix with dry to make batter– don’t add blueberries yet

Spray muffin pan and fill each slot 2/3

Add blueberries on top

Bake for 12 mins

The batch makes 11 muffins.  And no I don’t like that it makes an odd number either.

Enjoy!

Cinnamon Oatmeal Lava Cake

OatMeal Lava Cake

Sometimes messing up your recipe is for the better!  I was attempting to make a simple mug cake here but I did not cook it for long enough so I ended up with a cake like crust and a warm oatmeal center.  Instead of continuing to cook the mug cake I just ate it as is and it was quite delicious!  Yes I am sometimes that lazy.  I used 2 egg whites, 1/2 cup oats, 3/4 scoop protein powder, 1 packet stevia, a splash of water, pumpkin spice, and cinnamon.  I mixed everything together in a microwave safe mug and placed in the microwave for about 1 minute.  I topped with 1 tbs of Walden Farms syrup before eating! The cake is just under 300 calories 3g Fat/ 29g Carbohydrates/ 34g Protein.  Makes for a great post-workout meal!
