As I’ve written many times before, my weight has been a nearly constant struggle in my life. I am now at a really good place not only with my weight, but with my self-perception, body image and overall happiness. It was not always like this, for many years I was very overweight, had a really unhealthy view of myself and struggled with digging myself out of a hole of my own making. I eventually realized that if I wanted to be happier, more confident in my own skin, and a healthier person, I would need to take off nearly 100 pounds. I did it, but it was one of the most difficult things I ever had to face, and it took years.

Two of the biggest factors in me losing weight was 1) recording/tracking what I ate to keep myself accountable of what was going into my body, and 2) meal prepping. Meal prepping is essentially preparing healthy foods in advance that are pre-portioned and ready to eat. I will prepare snacks, breakfast and especially lunches that I can go to when I need them. This has become the best, most reliable way for me to make healthy choices for myself. Having the healthy choice already made for myself in advance is the best way to set myself up for success in healthy eating. Check out my page for my Tools for Healthy Living and Weight Loss for more of my go-to meal prep tools and resources.

My newest make-ahead breakfast option are these delicious Blueberry Protein Muffins. They contain 12 g of protein per muffin, and are a great post-workout snack. I love grabbing one of these muffins on my way out the door as I know I’m making a great healthy choice to get my day off to a great start.

Here’s how to make my Blueberry Protein Muffins:

Step 1 Mix together dry ingredients with wet ingredients

(Before you do that, preheat your oven to 350 degrees.)

In a bowl, mix together the dry ingredients; oatmeal, protein powder, stevia, baking powder and salt. In another bowl, combine the wet ingredients; milk, yogurt, egg whites and vanilla. Combine the wet ingredients with the dry ingredients until just combined. Then, fold in the blueberries and almonds.

To make these a great protein muffin recipe, note that these muffins not only contain protein powder, but also include Greek yogurt, milk and egg whites. I prefer to use regular dairy milk (as it contains the most protein per serving) but you can also use almond, oat, soy, coconut or any other milk you prefer.

Note: if you would prefer another type of sweetener instead of stevia I would recommend honey, maple syrup or agave nectar. All of these are great, but keep in mind they will increase the calorie content slightly.

Step 2: Spoon the batter into a prepared pan

Prepare a muffin pan by lightly spraying with non-stick baking spray, or coconut oil spray. You can also use non-stick silicone baking cups, which are fantastic!

Next, spoon in the batter to each cup. Each muffin cup will be nearly full. Top with additional almond slices and blueberries if you prefer.

Step 3 Bake to a Golden Brown

Much like other muffins, these blueberry protein muffins come out of the oven beautifully golden brown. Topped with slivered almonds and a sprinkle of oats, these protein muffins are not only a healthy way to start your day, but absolutely delicious!

Step 4: Enjoy right away or freeze for later

One of the many great things I love about this protein muffin recipe is that they make fantastic quick-breakfast options for busy mornings. I will often prep a batch of these blueberry protein muffins on a Sunday afternoon. Once they’re cool, I will individually wrap and freeze. The night before I will take out a muffin for myself for breakfast the next day. They’re great to grab on the way out the door in the morning or to pack in your lunch bag as a mid-morning or afternoon snack.

I will do the same thing with my Healthy Pumpkin Bread. I’ll bake and cool, then cut into individual slices. Then, wrap in press-and-seal wrap, and freeze. The perfect morning treat or afternoon snack!
