What is the measure on blueberries? Fresh or frozen work better? Brooke Griffin "Competition Mama" March 25, 2011 at 3:33 am I have always used 1/2 cup blueberries and I have only ever used fresh:) Hope you enjoy!:) Melanie February 27, 2013 at 9:18 pm This recipe was actually pretty awful to me. I couldn't eat them. :( However, I threw a 6-muffin small pouch of regular Betty Crocker muffin mix into my batter and then baked. Delish! LOL And only half the sugar it would've been with just the regular muffin mix. I also added some fiber powder with the muffin mix to make them high fiber high protein. Brooke Griffin "Skinny Mom" February 28, 2013 at 10:28 am I'm glad you were able to fix them to your liking Melanie! C C April 1, 2013 at 10:48 am I just made these but took out the splenda and used liquid stevia. I also subbed the pancake syrup with honey. Delicious! You can tell they are made with protein powder due to the texture but I think it's delicious! I love baking with protein powder. Elyzabeth Michelle March 11, 2014 at 3:40 pm LOVE IT Kali March 19, 2014 at 2:11 pm I just finished baking these and I love them! I used whole grain spelt flour and substituted sweetener with organic grade B maple syrup. Delish! micahrae78 May 21, 2014 at 6:47 pm LOVE IT email@example.com July 7, 2014 at 8:47 pm has any one ever tried to freeze them? do they freeze well? Brooke Griffin July 8, 2014 at 4:28 pm I have never tried to freeze the muffins but would love to know if they freeze well. The next time I make these, I will try to freeze them;) MMVonne September 7, 2014 at 2:56 pm I just made these and they're delicious! I did make a few slight changes. I don't have any vanilla protein powder so I used Cellucor Cinnamon Swirl whey protein powder instead, I doubled the vanilla extract, used Truvia baking blend (60g), added 1 tablespoon of cinnamon, and omitted the lemon zest. It's so hard to stop after eating just one! Thank goodness they're healthy. I made 12 muffins and mine ended up being 174 calories, 4g of fat, 27g carbs, and 8g of protein. MMVonne September 15, 2014 at 6:54 pm After I made these on September 7th I put half of them in the freezer. I've since gotten a couple out, popped them in the microwave until warm, and they taste just as good if not better than the ones I ate right away! So yes, these can be frozen without compromising taste or texture! Leave a Reply Cancel reply You must be logged in to post a comment.
