If you are into your paleo snacks, then these gluten free all natural high protein muffins are a winner! You can prepare them in under 10 minutes. A while ago, we put this paleo recipe into a blog post – High protein Bluberry muffin loaf. They are that good, we though we’d put the recipe into a video and turn them into paleo muffins.
Once made, you can pop them in the freezer and take one each day for your lunch box. By lunchtime they are defrosted and ready to eat. Delicious! Hands down better than any processed snack you buy for $5 bucks on the run.

Paleo recipe snacks / muffins transcript
Guy: Hi. This is Guy of 180 Nutrition, and today I want to show you how to make a high-protein blueberry muffin.
Very simple to do. And not only is it simple; it’s completely natural and very healthy as well.
So, just in front of me here you’ll see the list of ingredients I’ve got. We’ve got Chocolate 180 Protein supplement. You can use chocolate or coconut for this. I’ve got a small apple, which is grated up. I’ve got a medium-sized banana which is mashed.
I’ve got a couple of egg whites. Now, the egg whites have the yolks taken out. Why? I don’t know. We’ll have to ask Caroline on that one.
We’ve got a lemon, got some blueberries, got some almond meal and some shredded coconut and also some vanilla essence.
And I’m basically going to show you how it’s all whipped together.
We’re going to just mix the ingredients, so the first thing we’ve got is, this is a 50-gram scoop. These come with the bags of protein. Now, we’re gonna use two scoops of 180 protein supplement.
We’re gonna use two scoops of almond meal. Again, we don’t have to be that precise. Two scoops.
And then we’re gonna use one scoop of coconut. There you go.
All right. From that point, we are gonna add; that’s the grated apple. We’ve got the mashed banana.
Just something to be wary of, as well, if you are trying to lose weight, just go easy with the fruit and take it half daily because it will affect your weight-loss plan because you want to keep your carbohydrate count low. OK?
So, if you limit yourself to one piece of fruit a day, and or have one muffin in between your meals as a snack, I think you’ll be fine.
So, we have added that. The next thing I’m gonna do is throw in some grated lemon.
You can use as much as you want. This is just an arbitrary guesstimate, up to a whole one. Perfect.
And then from there what we’re gonna do is, if you want a little bit of vanilla essence here, add a teaspoon.
And then just mix these in together nice and easy.
Once that’s mixed, you just sprinkle in a few blueberries if you like these.
And then get the two egg whites which have been pre-beated.
You simply fold these together. Just keep turning them over. Get that egg white amongst it.
As you see, there’s a nice paste coming.
Looks good to me. And then with the muffin tray that we have here, pop them in.

Guy: So, these have just been in the oven now for 20 minutes, and, as you can see, they are looking beautiful and they are smelling beautiful, too. So, I’ve just got to make sure that Stuie holding the camera doesn’t come and eat the lot.
And, yeah, I hope you enjoyed it. Until the next time.

Hey, you cut the top of my head off.
Stuie: That was intentional.
