Healthy Lemon Blueberry Muffins

Low-Sugar, High-Protein Lemon Blueberry Protein Muffins

Sometimes your brain says, "muffin," when you wake up in the morning. And although typical baked goods you'd find at Starbucks or other coffee shops are loaded with the white stuff, these are not. With less than nine grams of sugar per muffin, these light and moist muffins deliciously sweetened with lemon juice and blueberries are sure to satisfy your morning muffin cravings.

Go ahead and have two because, for just 300 calories, you'll also get 12 grams of protein and almost five grams of fiber. Whip up a batch on Sunday night and you can store the leftovers in the fridge for the entire week. I like warming them up a little in the microwave for a just-out-of-the-oven feel.
