Healthy Strawberry Protein Muffins

Healthy Strawberry Protein Muffins

As much as I can’t wait for pumpkin lattes, leaves flooding the streets and Halloween decorations, I am having a tough time saying goodbye to summer.  All of my favorite fruits are in season during the summer months and I can’t help but to think I didn’t get quite get my fill of them.

As a tribute to summer, I made Healthy Strawberry Protein Muffins made with freeze dried strawberries. P.S. you can get freeze dried strawberries all year long! Yay!

I placed one cup of freeze dried strawberries in my food processor on high until it turned to powder. I then stirred in all my dry ingredients.

 

Makes for a delicious looking batter and an even more flavorful muffin!

These muffins aren’t like your supermarket muffins. Oh no, these muffins are made with only whole food ingredients and added protein powder to give you a little extra nutritional boost to keep you energized throughout the day.

 

I used PEScience Select Gourmet Vanilla protein powder. I find it bakes better than other protein powders on the market and tastes so sweet, you won’t need to add any extra sugar.
