What is the surprise? It's cream cheese, which adds flavor and tenderness. Vanilla whey protein is used in place of standard flour.

What you'll need

  • 3 med eggs
  • 3 tbsp. oil
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1 1/4 cup vanilla whey protein powder
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/3 cup Splenda
  • 1/4 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp. grated lemon rind
  • 1/2 tsp. grated orange peel
  • 1/2 cup blueberries
  • 3 oz cream cheese, cut into nine cubes
  • 1 med nonstick spray or paper muffin liners


  • Step 1
    Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Line nine muffin tins with paper liners or spray with nonstick spray.
  • Step 2
    Combine the eggs, oil, and cream; stir to blend. Add the whey powder, baking powder, Splenda, cinnamon, lemon rind, and orange rind. Stir until it combines. Do not over-stir or the muffins will be tough. Fold in the blueberries gently.
  • Step 3
    Spoon 1/2 of the batter into the prepared muffin tins. Place a cube of cream cheese in the center of each. Fill the tins with the remaining batter, making certain that the batter goes completely and around the cubes of cream cheese.
  • Step 4
    Bake at 375 degrees for eight to ten minutes, or until the muffins spring back when touched and no longer look moist on the top. Serve warm.
