Organic Blueberry Protein Muffins

Finally, a great tasting organic muffin that is absolutely lovely with a cup of black coffee or tea in the mornings (or an after school snack for the little ones!)

My husband can only go a few days without some type of muffin with his coffee, and I’m right there with him 🙂 I had to find a way to make this treat as healthy and clean as possible, so here is my best shot after 11 years of trying:

Thankful to report, they don’t last long once baked!

At least is only take 15 minutes to prepare 😉

Here’s the recipe:

Ingredients (all organic):

(Dry ingredients)

  • 3 cups flour
  • 1/2 cup cane sugar
  • 1 cup organic oats
  • 3 teaspoons aluminum-free baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon Himalayan salt

(Wet ingredients)

  • 4 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1.5 teaspoons natural vanilla extract
  • 4 free range eggs
  • 1.5 cups applesauce
  • 2 1/4 cups soy or almond milk (I use organic soy milk for an added 22 grams of protein, making them legit “protein muffins!”)

Stir-ins:

  • 1.5 cups fresh or frozen blueberries
  • 1.5 cups chopped walnuts

Directions:

  • Mix dry ingredients in a bowl.
  • Mix wet ingredients in another bowl, and then add to dry ingredients and mix with a spatula only till everything is moistened (Over-stirring causes heavy Muffins).
  • Add blueberries and walnuts.
  • Pour into 24 regular muffin cups, or 12 jumbo.
  • Sprinkle tops with organic cane sugar or brown sugar (optional – but I always do!)
  • Bake in 400 oven for 17 – 20 minutes or until done.
  • Let cool in pan 3 minutes, then remove and enjoy!

Store in refrigerator up to 5 days.

Please invite me over if you make these 🙂 xoxo! Katy
