Healthy gluten-free muffins- with fresh blueberries and a big protein boost!

There’s just something to be said about starting the day with some kind of warm, melt-in-your mouth breakfast treat!¬†Paired¬†with a steaming hot cup of coffee, it’s literally a heavenly combination! The whole experience is enough to actually make me look forward to morning (well, sort-of!).

I’ve been searching for some time, with not much luck, for a lightened-up take on the traditional muffin recipe- something¬†not high in processed-sugars, macro-friendly,¬†and a bit of protein to help me start my day on the right foot.

Unfortunately most of what I found was a far cry from the “muffin” I knew and loved. Either the end result was too-thin/watered down, or it just tasted bland! …So I created my own!

These muffins are thick, with a cake-like consistency and texture! They are sweetened with natural sweeteners like honey & applesauce; and even better they freeze well- meaning I can make plenty ahead of time and unthaw throughout the week so every morning is enjoyable!

Warm in the microwave for a few seconds and add an extra bit of honey or a hint of maple syrup to really elevate the taste!

You’ll never do breakfast the same way again!

Ingredients:

  • 4¬†eggs
  • 1¬†cup¬†skim¬†milk
  • 1/2¬†cup¬†coconut¬†oil,¬†melted
  • 1/4¬†cup¬†unsweetened¬†applesauce
  • 1/3¬†cup¬†honey
  • 2¬†tsp¬†vanilla¬†extract
  • 2¬†tsp¬†apple¬†cider¬†vinegar
  • 2/3¬†cup¬†coconut¬†flour
  • 4¬†scoops¬†Level-1¬†Vanilla¬†Ice¬†Cream¬†Protein¬†Powder
  • 1/2¬†teaspoon¬†salt
  • 1¬†tablespoon¬†baking¬†powder
  • 1¬†cup¬†blueberries,¬†fresh¬†or¬†frozen

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
    Whisk eggs, milk, coconut oil, applesauce, honey, vanilla & vinegar in medium bowl. Set aside.
  2. In another bowl combine coconut flour, protein powder, salt, and baking powder. Stir  until all ingredients are mixed well.
  3. Add dry ingredients to original bowl. Mix well. Stir in blueberries. Scoop mixture into greased muffin tin. Tins should be approx. 2/3 full each.
  4. Bake 20 minutes or until toothpick inserted into muffin comes out clean. Cool in pans on wire rack 5 minutes. Remove from pans; cool completely.
  5. Enjoy!

 

Hints!

  • Lessen the fat in this recipe by using 1 full egg & 3 egg whites instead.
  • While I used skim milk, almond or cashew milk will also work fine in this recipe.
  • If you plan on using frozen blueberries, allow time for them to unthaw before adding directly to recipe.
  • Don’t be afraid to dress up this recipe by adding¬†a dash of cinnamon on top before serving or drizzle on some honey! The possibilities are truly endless!
  • In case you were wondering- the macros for this recipe are as follows- Calories¬†|¬†212/serving. Carbs¬†|¬†13.6¬†g. Protein¬†|¬†12¬†g. and Fat¬†|¬†12¬†g.
