These blueberry muffins are filling and are an alternative to the traditional muffins that are high in sugars. I utilized whey protein powder, stevia, coconut oil and flax seeds in the batter. I did use a little brown sugar in the batter but I did cut the sugar content down drastically from traditional muffins. I packed these gems with 12 grams of protein per serving for a healthier, slow burning and satisfying muffin.
Recipe: High Protein Blueberry Muffins

In a large mixing bowl mix together eggs, buttermilk, coconut oil, stevia, brown sugar and lemon zest with a wooden spoon.
Slowly pour and mix the dry ingredients into the wet mixture. Fold in the blueberries and be careful not to over mix.
Spray a muffin pan with non-stick cooking spray. Fill 9 slots with batter to the top.
