Protein Packed Blueberry Muffins

I think blueberries belong in everything, pancakes, salads, breads, muffins, cereal all of it. I love me some blueberries! So in very Erin fashion, I attempted to make my favorite baked good, muffins, healthier and with a little more protein. 

Insert Kodiak Cakes, if you haven't tried this brand you're missing out! They make great pancake mixes and oats, and have a "power" version loaded with protein. I used this as my base for the muffins. This mix can be found on Amazon, Targets and my local Star Market just started carrying it, whoop!

I've been enjoying these muffins first thing in the morning as a little energy boost before my runs. They're relatively high in carbs (good carbs) which give me sustained energy for the day. Top them with a little almond butter and they're a perfect snack throughout the day as well. I usually eat two immediately out of the oven, and then freeze the rest in bags of two that I can take to work with me and have as an afternoon snack (they defrost themselves throughout the day).

2 scoops Pescience Vanilla Protein

1 Egg

 1c Almond Milk

1/2c Coconut Sugar

2 Mashed Bananas

1 teas. Cinnamon

1c Blueberries

Mix all wet ingredients together, slowly add dry ingredients. Bake at 350 for 12-18min. And YUM! I'd also recommend using foil muffin pan liners, they don't stick as much to the foil as they might to paper.

Makes 12 muffins. Serving 1 muffin: 152 cal, 30g carbs, 7g protein, 1g fat. 

Let me know what you guys think! Tag me on social, I wanna see those muffins!
