The combination of lemon and raspberries are a classic flavor and these lemon raspberry protein muffins are simply the best.  These muffins are so moist and so delicious!!!

 

This is a great base recipe for any fruity muffin so any fruit would work!

In a separate large bowl mix flour, protein powder, baking soda & powder and salt.

EXTRAS

Fresh fruit is probably better than frozen or thawed fruit but I have used both and they turn out fine.

Adding walnuts or pecans would be delicious also.  Nutrition information does not reflect.
