I’m a sucker for a fresh blueberry muffin right out of the oven. The sweetness of the muffin mixed with the tartness of the fresh blueberries just does something for me.

If you’ve been with me for a while then you know that I love to play around with protein powder. Ever since I started counting macros (proteins, carbs and fats) and understanding the importance of proper protein intake, I am always looking for ways to sneak it in. 

So when I was craving blueberry muffins the other day, I knew just what to do! These high-protein white chocolate blueberry muffins are an amazing snack or breakfast food and a sneaky way to up your daily protein intake.

Swaps or Alternatives

Protein powder – I used a whey protein powder, however, you can easily swap it for a plant-based protein. I like KOS vanilla protein and Ritual’s vanilla protein powder for plant-based options.

Greek yogurt – I used plain greek yogurt, but swapping for a vanilla-flavored greek yogurt will add a tad more flavor.

Egg whites – You can use a whole egg in place of the egg whites if you want to increase the fat content.

Blueberries – If you don’t have blueberries or they aren’t your favorite, you can substitute them for your favorite berry! Raspberries and blackberries work best.

Quick Tip

If your muffin batter looks too runny, add in some more flour or protein powder to give it a thicker consistency. A super runny batter can result in wet muffins.
