Getting Healthy from the Inside Out

Who says muffins have to be unhealthy? When I found this recipe, though it didn’t have the nutritional breakdown- and it was made as a loaf, where as I prefer muffins- I could tell it was going to be healthy! A little nervous to cook with protein powder again (my last attempt was disasterous!) this recipe had already been created… I was just testing it!

And, wow, I wasn’t disappointed!

 

 Ingredients

  • 1 1/4 cup oat flour
  • 1/2 cup non fat greek yogurt
  • 2 scoops vanilla protein powder
  • 1/4 cup Stevia in the raw
  • Juice from 2 lemons
    Zest of one lemon
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 4 egg whites
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup blueberries
 Glaze: 1/2 scoop vanilla protein powder, 1 packet Truvia, 1 tbsp almond milk
 
Directions
1. Combine all ingredients except blueberries in mixing bowl and mix well.
2. Add blueberries and lightly mix. Pour batter into a prepared loaf pan.
3. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.
4. In a small bowl mix protein powder and Truvia for glaze. SLOWLY begin to pour in almond milk and mix well until you have a frosting type consistency.
6. Coat top of muffins with glaze while still warm.
