How good do these blueberry muffins look?!
And you’re probably thinking I slaved away for atleast an hour to make them, right? Well my friends, I didn’t. I actually just tossed all the ingredients into my blender (except for the blueberries – no need to blend those), blended them all up, and baked them for like 20ish minutes. The whole process took about half an hour – and that includes precisely measuring all the ingredients.
So I guess you could say these muffins are fail proof.
A while back I made these healthy low calorie blueberry muffins infused with orange juice. Those muffins were fantastically refreshing, and great if you like oranges (or orange juice), but obviously weren’t going to satisfy any traditional blueberry muffin cravings. Which is precisely why I needed to come out with a more traditional recipe. And I think I just might have outdone myself on this one – each blueberry muffin has only 140 calories, 2g of fat, and over 10g of protein.
