Lemon & Berry Protein Muffins

Balance Sports Nutrition Lemon Berry Protein Muffin Recipe


Muffins are so awesomely versatile. You can eat them alone for breakfast, as a snack during the day, or even when you're craving something a little sweet late at night.

You can make them even better by adding protein powder to the mix, like in this recipe. These lemon and berry protein muffins are gluten-free and they're popping with fresh berry flavour. Plus, the balance whey protein adds 30-35 grams of protein to the batch.
