Healthy Blueberry Vanilla Protein Muffins

Muffin 1I’m officially back. After an extra long holiday filled with delicious food, drinks and more delicious food, I am very happy to be home and back into the routine. The only vegetable my body consumed for the past 3 weeks was served with chicken wings and dipped in blue cheese dressing. Do I regret it? Absolutely not… I ate my way across North America and it was glorious. Am I ready get back into healthy eating? Most definitely (especially since it turned summer in Australia while I was away). Last night I created these Blueberry Vanilla Protein Muffins. They are super easy and quick to make and are a perfect ‘snack’ to kick the sweet craving while being healthy. The come in around 100-140 calories depending on the protein powder you use.
