Lemon Blueberry Protein Muffins (Soy, Sugar, Dairy, and G-Free!)

Food on the go–as in, emergency readiness kits–that are balanced, portable and tasty, are hard to come by.  We all stash nuts or bars in our gym bags and glove boxes, but sometimes, you just want a tasty baked good that fits in your purse for when hunger strikes.  These light, moist and healthy muffins have ZERO sugar (or gluten, soy or dairy!), and yet, taste delightfully sweet thanks to a good protein powder.  I like to bake with Protizyme.  It’s very sweet on its own, so I seldom add any sweetener when I bake with it.  I like the cake batter flavor for recipes such as this, but  it comes in a variety of super cool flavors.  I tried making them with a vegan protein powder and they weren’t very good, so be sure you enjoy the raw flavor of your powder before preparing the mix. 5 mini muffins gives you 15 grams of protein and 20 carbs and about 8 fat.  So add just a little more protein and it’s a balanced snack.
