Lemon Raspberry protein muffins are a delicious way to fuel your day’s adventure! And with under 10 minutes of hands-on time & no fancy equipment, this lemon raspberry muffin recipe is a real keeper! For a quick breakfast, pre-workout snack or popped into a lunchbox, these lemony muffins are a burst of fresh flavour that will keep you going. Change up the berries depending on what is in season or what you have in your freezer.

Low sugar protein-packed muffins are quick and easy to make, and are bursting with fruit lemony goodness! The addition of Webber Naturals All in One Vegan Shake Vanilla Cream adds a hit of extra plant-based protein & greens goodness. These are bright, zingy muffins as we kept the sugar very low. You can feel good about popping these into a lunchbox or a backpack!

IMPORTANT TO KNOW:

When making these muffins we experimented with how much protein powder we could add without the muffins ending up heavy and rubbery. You need JUST the right amount to achieve a good texture!

What we found is that when adding protein powder into baked goods, it’s important to not go too far! For us, the limit is up to 1/4 cup of the flour in an original recipe can be swapped out with your choice of protein powder. More than that and you will start to see major changes in the texture and risk ruining the whole batch. In this recipe, we pushed up to the max 1/4 cup and found the muffins to still be light and have a great texture.
