Strawberry Protein Muffins

Summer is coming!!! It was 82 degrees and super sunny in Pittsburgh yesterday.  You will never ever hear me say "It's too hot!" I love summertime! So what would be the perfect summer breakfast?? How about strawberry muffins?! 
Ya, I would say that looks like summer to me.

Once you have your fresh strawberries, you only need a couple more ingredients!
Strawberry or vanilla protein powered, egg substitute, baking powder, vanilla, and sweetener.  Normally I would just use vanilla protein powder because I don't usually buy a big tub of strawberry. I just happen to have this great sample so I figured it would be perfect! 

We are going to use 2 cups of strawberries.  
I had to snack on a few while prepping.  Too good!

We are going to puree 1 cup...
And chop 1 cup into little pieces...
 If you wanted, you could puree all the strawberries, but I prefer the texture of having pieces of fruit in there.

Mix everything together in a bowl.  Easy!
You already know these muffins are going to be super pretty! That color!

Use muffin liners or silicon baking cups.  You can fill the cups up just about to the top because these won't rise much.
Into the oven for about 28-30 minutes at 350.

They smell awesome!
They are going to taste even more awesome! 

In case you had any doubt, all 6 muffins are considered one serving! You could always double the recipe if you wanted to share.
All 6 muffins are only 245 calories! I made two batches to freeze for on-the-go breakfasts.  

Each muffin is only about 40 calories.  
These would be so good topped with a little non fat greek yogurt!! Like a strawberries and cream summer treat!  Looks like I will be making a third batch to try that right away.  Good thing strawberries are on sale this week :)
