Mini Blueberry & Lemon Protein Cakes

These use my favourite blend-and-bake method, meaning it’s just a case of chucking the ingredients into a bowl (not literally, please, no responsibility is taken for kitchen destruction), blending together with an immersion blender and leaving to bake in the oven! If you’ve got silicone loaf moulds that makes life even easier as it saves faffing with greasing and lining the tins.

I’m keeping this blog post short and sweet, if you have a go let me know! Or if Lemon and Blueberry don’t take your fancy, how about the White Chocolate and Raspberry version?
