Are you meal prepping? Do you count your macros or calories? Check out my notes below on how you can incorporate these blueberry pancake protein muffins into your meal prep. And easily adjust protein and fats to meet your macro requirements.
NOTES FOR MEAL PREP:
This is a wonderful recipe for meal prepping. You can store the individual servings in the fridge for 5 – 7 days or in the freezer for up to one month. I love to eat these warm, so if removing from the freezer, I pop them in the microwave for 30 seconds. Or if pulling from the fridge you can microwave them for 10-15 seconds.
NOTES FOR COUNTING MACROS:
- Protein: This recipe is already packed with protein and if you try to increase it any more your muffins will be too dense. But you can decrease the protein by decreasing the additional protein powder or removing it all together. Although, you must remember protein powders are not created equal, so be sure to check your label. If you used the same protein powder as me, which has 25 grams of protein per scoop, you would decrease the protein by 2.5 grams per muffin, if you were to remove all of the additional protein powder.
- Carbohydrate: Are not easily adjusted with this blueberry pancake protein muffin recipe, changing the amount of carbs would change the consistency too much.
- Fats: This recipe is very low in fat, if you are looking to increase the fat you could add up to 2 tablespoons of butter which will make the recipe a little richer and still very delicious. 2 tbsp of butter would increase the fat in the recipe by 23 grams or 2.6 grams per muffin.
- If you choose to add the butter, soften the butter before adding and add with all of the other ingredients.
When adjusting macros you will want to keep in mind the number of servings you are making.
