Lemon and poppy seed protein muffins

craftcartwright Food and Drink, Recipe 10 Comments

If you have ever read my blog before, you will know I LOVE cake. There has recently been a trend in people distancing themselves from sugar and sweet things. I can see the reasons behind this, I know sugar is not a health food but in small measures it’s fine and a sugar free or cake free world just isn’t for me. Eating healthily is still very important to me which is why I love these protein muffins.

However, when I got my diagnosis of Coeliac disease I had to look carefully at my diet, obviously gluten was gone but I also wanted to rebuild myself from the inside out. So gone where most processed foods and in was a lot more cooking from scratch. I already cooked a lot of things from scratch but could there be anything thing else I could do? Adding supplements is one way I have found to boost my baking. It makes no difference to the final bake but all the difference to my nutrition.

I love this simple method for making muffins, it's even easier if you have an add and weigh set of scales. Simple put the bowl of the food processor on the scales and away you go.
