Cranberry Flax Protein Muffins

Cranberry Flax Protein Muffins
This recipe is one that you have to try! I have made it twice already and really like it. It uses no flour, no added sugar and is sweet on their own. I have been eating two of these for a mid-morning snack.

These muffins last all week. Store in a Tupperware on the counter or in your fridge.

Cranberry Flax Protein MuffinsThey have a mix of tart flavor from the cranberries and a salty, nutty flavor from the peanuts. I have never made muffins without flour before and was so impressed with how these turned out! I would highly recommend them and am going to make them with all different ingredients.
