Low Carb – High Protein Muffins

Here are my low carb, high protein muffins. These are not going to be your ‘cupcake-like’ light and fluffy muffins. They’re more dense and are only naturally sweet. These are perfect for meals or snacks on-the-go. You can feel guilt-free enjoying these perfect clean fuel bites.

I created these to have an alternative to using protein powder for quick guilt-free on-the-go snacks. I love my lean protein shakes but I don’t like relying on them for every protein snack. Here I’ve created something that can give you all the benefits of egg whites and low-fat cottage cheese without even knowing they are there.

DAMY Members – these are perfect for meal two or meal four. If you are traveling and have no way of making your oatmeal or protein pancake in the morning you can use three of these for your breakfast. For a snack the serving size is two.

These will become a staple in your daily lean/clean eating. Enjoy!

This is a personal choice depending on if you would like chunks of fruit or just the overall flavour.
