There are few things I enjoy more on the weekends than a big cup of coffee and a warm muffin to go with it. However, they don’t call that roll around your waist a “muffin top” for nothing, so I tend to avoid them—especially after learning that some of my favorite “low fat” coffee shop muffins are secretly high in sugar. This is why people have trust issues!
Fortunately, I stumbled across this recipe for Lemon Blueberry Protein Muffins. I have to admit I was skeptical—some things you just can’t “healthy up” without losing the indulgence factor. However, these tasty, tangy treats restored my faith in muffinkind!
Coming in at just 150 calories each, and with 6 grams of protein per serving, they are not only filling, but delicious! And with less than 9 grams of sugar and just under 6 grams of fat you can kiss the dreaded muffin top goodbye. Enjoy!
*Although you can use bottled lemon juice and frozen blueberries, I recommend the real deal for the best flavor.
