I don't know about you, but I seem to always have fresh or frozen blueberries in my fridge or freezer. They are so versatile, perfect for baking, smoothies or even overnight oats. So before our beloved blueberry season is over, we are bringing you a scrumptious healthy blueberry muffin recipe from our friend Lara at Lala's Plate.
The gooey blueberries in these muffins make them something special to savour. They're under 100 calories per muffin, contain 5g of protein and are so easy to throw together! They make the best light breakfast, morning snack or afternoon treat. So pack them in your bag, for a nice protein hit post-Pilates!
