My husband and I enjoy coffee in the morning before we start our day and I have never been one to eat sweets for breakfast, but I wanted to create a recipe where I could eat something enjoyable with my coffee that had the protein and a great taste. I decided to create my very own version of Blueberry Buckle. This buckle is special, it is completely vegan and gluten free and has a vegan and gluten free protein powder incorporated in the recipe as well. I used Sprout Living EPIC PLANT BASED PROTEIN Powder. I am super excited to share this with you. It is a tasty and healthy breakfast treat to keep your morning full and delicious.
