I finally got back into the kitchen. I love to cook and bake, it’s very therapeutic. I have been thinking about healthier desserts or muffins I should say that don’t just added unnecessary calories. If you’re going to eat a delicious muffin (so good!), it may as well benefit you. If you’re at home and you are going to bake, you should make something healthy and packed with good stuff.
Here is a very easy recipe, I came up with this last week for you. It’s simple. I used Genuine Health’s Fermented Protein for these muffins. They’re really good! Seriously! Not too sweet, you are free add more honey (I used honey) or a sweetener you prefer. Don’t over do it though, they’re meant to be light and not packed with sugar. A great way to compliment a morning or afternoon latte.
I used an unflavoured protein, I think this is your best bet when baking with protein.
OAT FLOUR: To make oat flour, put a cup or more into your blender and blend on the highest setting. Store leftover flour in an air tight container.

- ¾ cup of Oat Flour
- 2 tsp of Baking Powder
- 2 tbsp of unflavoured protein
- 2 tbsp of Honey

- 2 Eggs
- ½ cup of Fresh Blueberries
- ½ cup of Almond Milk (or milk you prefer)
- A pinch of salt
- Lemon Zest
- Pre-heat oven to 180C/350F
- Combine dry ingredients in one bowl.
- In a separate bowl ADD and MIX eggs, milk, honey, vanilla, lemon zest and oil.
- Combine wet and dry ingredients. Once mixed fold in blueberries.
- Scoop batter into muffin ramekin.

For this recipe I used Genuine Health Fermented Protein.
If you are using coconut oil make sure all your ingredients are at room temperature. Slowly melt the required amount of coconut oil on the stove.
