Blueberry Lemon Protein Muffins

This recipe is in collaboration with my husband, Thomas. You can view his SlimDown-ShowDown blog for more details on his journey!

When my husband came back from his weeklong initiation for the HEB SlimDown ShowDown Challenge in San Antonio, he came bearing a few “gifts” from some of the sponsors. One of them, Kodiak Cakes, supplied him with some of their macro-friendly goodies such as their Minute Muffins, Power Cakes Flapjack & Waffle Mix, and this new product I hadn’t seen before, Power Bake protein packed muffin mix in blueberry lemon. At first sight, I knew we had to come up with something incredible, and I knew just what that was: Blueberry Lemon Protein Muffin Loaves!

I sat on the idea for a week or two, and when I finally had time, got to work making my vision come to life. The result? A super delicious & moist muffin with just the right amount of blueberry & lemon flavor and plenty of protein to help reach our targets each day! Seriously though, these came out sooo amazing!

Blueberry Lemon Protein Muffins

Yields: 8 mini loaves/12 muffins

INGREDIENTS:

🔸115g banana, mashed

🔸198g Kodiak Cakes Power Bake Muffin Mix in Blueberry Lemon

🔸1 whole egg

🔸92g egg whites

🔸30g lemon juice

🔸4g lemon zest

🔸200g fresh blueberries

🔸60mL reduced fat high protein milk

🔸150g Greek yogurt (I used 2% here)

🔸liquid stevia or sucralose to taste (I use 30-40 drops)

🔸1 scoop (30g) De Novo Nutrition Max MPS Whey in White Cake

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Preheat oven to 375F.
  2. Add all dry ingredients in a bowl, then add blueberries and carefully stir in so that berries become coated; this step is important as it will prevent the blueberries from rupturing while baking. Add all other ingredients and stir until well blended.
  3. Evenly divide mix between an 8 well loaf pan (or 12 well cupcake/muffin pan).
  4. Bake for approximately 23-30 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.

      Hi! Yes, a very creative mix. Unfortunately, I don’t think you could totally remove the whey from this mix since the main base from Kodiak Cakes contains whey protein. You could definitely use a different baking flour to create the mix and eliminate the whey/protein ingredients, but the results won’t come out quite the same 😦
