High-Protein Blueberry Oat Muffins

Muffin for breakfast? Yes, please.


These delicious blueberry treats might feel a bit indulgent for breakfast, but they’re actually a super-nutritious way to start the day — offering a healthy serving of carbs to fuel your activities and over 11g of protein to feed your muscles.

This super-simple recipe from our favourite kitchen whizz, Niall Kirkland, uses honey and banana to naturally sweeten these muffins, instead of packing in a load of refined sugar like shop-bought alternatives.

Now you can satisfy your cake-cravings and level-up your coffee break, no matter what your goals are.

  4. Then add the cinnamon, baking powder, honey, Greek yoghurt, and whey protein. Mix well.

  5. Now add the remaining oats and milk and mix until completely combined.
