Banana Blueberry Protein Muffins

Are you looking for a healthy breakfast muffin you can grab on the go?   I took a recipe shared by a friend and modified it to fit into a healthy clean eating plan.  To do this I simply  replaced the sugar with stevia  and replaced the all purpose flour with a mixture of oat flour, coconut flour and whey protein powder.  The  sugar wasn’t really necessary because they are naturally sweet from the banana.  I also replaced the plain Greek yogurt that the original recipe called for with fat free ricotta cheese.  This helped eliminate the need for the sugar because plain Greek yogurt can taste pretty sour.  Ricotta on the other hand doesn’t need much to sweeten it up.  Yum!

Here is what you need:
