Recipe of the Week: Berry Cheesecake Protein Muffins

Recipe of the Week: Berry Cheesecake Protein Muffins

Homemade protein bars and muffins are great for snack meals and on-the-go eating.

This recipe is from my cookbook, Eat Green Get Lean, and it’s a tasty high-protein, low-carb, and low-fat treat.

Instead of flour, this recipe uses protein powder (which works well as a baking substitute), and the Greek yogurt and cottage cheese give the muffins a delicious, creamy texture. The blackberries add a light, fruity infusion.

Hope you enjoy!

Instructions

Preheat the oven to 340°F. Coat a 12-cup muffin pan in cooking spray.

Place all ingredients except the blackberries in a food processor or blender and process until well combined. Transfer to a large mixing bowl, add the blackberries and gently fold in.

Pour the batter evenly into the muffin pan, only filling each cup to 3/4 full. Place in oven and bake for 35 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean.

OVER 100,000 PEOPLE HAVE USED MY COOKBOOK TO GET THE BODY THEY WANT EATING THE FOODS THEY LOVE. WILL YOU BE NEXT?

What if I told you that just about everything magazines and trainers “teach” you about dieting is wrong?

What if you could build muscle and lose fat eating “naughty” foods every week?

What if you didn’t have to suffer through low-carb dieting to get lean? In fact, what if you could eat all the carbs you wanted?

And what if you didn’t have to gorge yourself just to gain muscle and didn’t have to put on pounds and pounds of ugly fat, either?

In short, what if I told you that proper dieting--whether you want to maximize fat loss or muscle growth--is much simpler and more enjoyable than you’ve been led to believe?

Imagine eating delicious, filling meals every day...never feeling starved or stuffed...having great energy levels and workouts...and watching your body respond exactly as you desire, dropping fat or adding muscle each and every week.

And imagine finally understanding how proper dieting really works, never again falling for the BS, tricks, and gimmicks pushed by “gurus” and other shysters.

Well, I have good news.

All these “fantasies” can be a reality...if you know how to do a handful of “little” things correctly.

You see, when you know how to diet properly--and this doesn’t mean learning to eat boiled chicken and raw broccoli six times per day--getting lean and muscular becomes simple, convenient, and dare I say...enjoyable.

And this book will show you the way.
