These muffins smell delicious coming out of the oven and taste even better. Fluffy protein filled batter, fresh lemon and tart but sweet raspberries, these make the perfect breakfast or snack.
Ingredient Notes and Health Benefits:
Oat Flour: You can make your own by blending oats, or you can purchase oat flour already premade. I prefer to just blend my oats because I eat oats more often than I need oat flour!
Raspberries: You can use fresh or frozen. In this recipe I used frozen. Raspberries are high in fiber, antioxidants and minerals.
Lemon Juice and Zest: Lemon is a great source of Vitamin C and also aids in digestion.
Protein Powder: I prefer to use a dairy-free protein powder, but any will work. Lately I’ve been using the Jay Robb egg-white protein powder.
