Freezer-friendly high protein muffins for a grab-and-go breakfast

Muffins often get a bad reputation for being low in nutrients and loaded with sugar. But these high protein muffins are healthy enough that you can eat them for breakfast or pack them for a snack without an ounce of guilt.

Protein packed with a boost of fiber, these muffins will help satisfy your hunger and keep your blood sugar levels stable. Grab them on the go, or slather on nut butter for a healthy timesaving breakfast.

To make these muffins allergen-friendly try any of the following swaps:

  • Gluten free – Use certified gluten free oats
  • Nut free – Try sunflower seed butter and hemp milk
  • Sugar free – Try sweetening with stevia
