Healthy Lemon Blueberry Cupcakes {High Protein}

Please follow and like us:

Summer is officially here! I know this because it’s 103 degrees outside and I can’t walk from my house to my car without breaking a sweat. The good news is blueberry and lemon flavored everything is totally in right now, so I decided to jump on the bandwagon make some deliciously healthy cupcakes topped with greek yogurt protein frosting!

If you are asking yourself if these are healthy enough to eat for breakfast, the answer is yes, yes, yes! I can’t think of a better way to start your day than having oats, eggs, berries and protein first thing in the morning!

    My husband and little girl made these for me as a surprise! He couldn’t find the oat flour and ended up splitting the difference between extra coconut flour and almond flour. He also used lavendar extract instead of the vanilla extract. I reeeeeally liked them! I’m a blueberry fiend, so I plan on making these again myself and doubling the blueberries so I can have a berry in every bite. These didn’t stick to the wrapper, either, as every protein cupcake/muffin I have previously made would do. Thanks for the recipe!

      Hi Vanessa!! What a great guy and daughter you have! I’m so glad you liked them and it’s good to know that splitting the difference using coconut flour worked 🙂 I will definitely have to try it with lavender extra–that sounds amazing 😍
