High Protein Blueberry Muffins

VG

These healthy blueberry muffins are packed with good for you ingredients! They’re gluten-free, low in fat and sugar, high in protein and only 100 calories each!

Nothing says happy Sunday like a batch of freshly baked blueberry muffins. Am I right? Hopefully so because today I have a lovely little blueberry muffin recipe to share with ya.

Eight blueberry muffins on a cooling rack surrounded by blueberries.

When I say lovely, I mean it! These muffins studded with blueberries, loaded with flavor, perfectly moist and packed with good-for-you ingredients.

Healthy Muffin Swaps

  • oat flour, almond flour and protein powder instead of regular white flour
  • almond milk and apple cider vinegar instead of buttermilk
  • greek yogurt and egg whites instead of oil and eggs

And because of the swaps, these babies are low in sugar, low in fat, higher in protein, only about 100 calories a piece and way, way healthier than most bakery muffins (which are usually just cupcakes disguised as a breakfast food).

Taste-Tester Approved

Over the past few weeks I tested three different versions of these muffins and the one I’m sharing today is definitely the winner. It’s been taste-tested by a handful of people including Isaac’s Dad, Dan. Whenever I can get Dan to like my healthy baked goods I consider the recipe a win as he’s brutally honest and my toughest critic. For instance, one time after being asked how he liked the cookies I made, he told me they were okay, but I probably shouldn’t make them again. haha.

Don’t worry, these muffins are Dan approved! 🙂

If you can’t tell, I’m pretty excited about these portable, blueberry-filled gems. I have an inkling that you’re going to love them just as much as I do!

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
Total Time 30 minutes
Servings 9 muffins

Ingredients

  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1 1/4 cups oat flour
  • ¼ cup almond flour
  • ¼ cup vanilla protein powder
  • ¼ cup coconut sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 3 Tablespoons egg whites
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 375° F.
  • Spray 9 cups of your muffin tin with non-stick cooking spray (I use coconut oil spray), or use paper liners.
  • Combine the almond milk and apple cider vinegar in a glass mixing bowl, whisk and set aside.
  • Combine all the dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Create a well in the middle of the bowl.
  • Add the greek yogurt, egg whites and vanilla into the bowl with the almond milk. Stir to combine.
  • Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir just until combined. Fold in the blueberries.
  • Fill 9 wells of the muffin tin.
  • Bake for 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.
  • Let muffins cool before removing from tin and serving. Refrigerate leftovers in a covered container for up to one week. Eat cold or reheat in the toaster over before serving.

Notes

  • If you want to keep the recipe dairy-free, you can use dairy-free coconut or almond yogurt.
  • If you don't have oat flour, you can make your own by grinding rolled oats in a food processor or blender. Whole wheat flour will also work if you're not gluten-free.

      hi:) i just made the muffins and used fresh blueberries. After 20 mins in the oven they seemed cooked through and the toothpick came out dry but it was abit moist when i ate it. Could this be due to the blueberries or greek yogurt?

        How long did you let them sit before eating one? Maybe it needed more time to rest or just a few more minutes in the oven! Cook times always vary depending on your oven. 🙂

      Hi, a few questions: could I just sub the whole wheat flour for all of the flour (both oat and almond) in the same quantities, or are other adjustments needed? Also, do you use nonfat Greek yogurt or a different type, and do other ingredients need adjustments depending on yogurt fat content? For the protein powder, do you use a plain unsweetened variety, and if any adjustments are needed if the protein powder has artificial or other sweeteners in it. Thanks for posting!

        Hey Abi, I haven’t tried this recipe with flour subs so I’m not sure how they would turn out. I typically use full fat Greek yogurt, but any kind will work. For the protein powder, I use Nuzest vanilla protein powder, but again any type will work and no need for adjustments!

      Can I make this with Chia egg instead of egg whites?

        Hey Jennifer, I haven’t tried these with an egg substitute, so I’m not sure how the muffins would turn out. If you’re looking for a blueberry muffin recipe without eggs, I do have this vegan blueberry muffin recipe you could try.

        Yes, frozen blueberries should work just fine! Let me know what you think if you try this recipe!
