Lemon and Blueberry Protein Muffin Recipe!

Hello darlings,

Today I’m sharing with you a recipe for one of my favorite protein muffins. I really love a baked good with my tea every now and then so these little babies are the perfect alternative to store-bought muffins.

The added protein keeps you fuller for longer, and as mentioned in my nutrient dense post blueberries are the best! Even though I don’t count calories for those who do one muffin is around 150 calories. tumblr_nlit7eFGrH1s7ihebo1_500


2 tablespoons flaxmeal

6 tablespoons water

1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar

240 ml milk (Any kind you like – I use semi skimmed cow’s milk)

170 grams rice flour

2 scoops vanilla protein powder (1 scoop is about 35 grams; I use Protein World)

2 teaspoons baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

100 grams stevia (Any sugar alternative you like)

75 ml rapeseed oil

3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

2 teaspoons pure lemon extract

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

190 grams blueberries


  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees. Line two 12-muffin pans with 15 paper liners.

  3. In another bowl, whisk together the apple cider vinegar, milk and set aside.
  4. In a large bowl, combine the flour, protein powder, baking soda, salt, and stevia.
  5. Mix in the oil, lemon juice, lemon extract, vanilla extract.
  6. Stir in the flaxseed mixture as well as the vinegar/milk mixture.
  7. Fold in the blueberries.
  8. Divide the batter among the 15 muffin cups and bake for 25 minutes.

These are great snacks to take to work, have as post workout fuel or freeze a few and take them out when the craving strikes!
