Protein Booster Blueberry Muffins
lornesta says:

The protein grams for this recipe are incorrect. The protein grams are 23 per muffin based on the ingredients and amounts listed. I'm sorry I didn't double check this before I made them as this is over half the daily amount of protein my husband is allowed to eat. Whey protein is 20g of protein per scoop which is less than one ounce. Dietitian comment: I rechecked and the nutrients are correct. 2 scoops (1/3 cup each scoop)of the designer whey protein used in the analysis provides 60 grams protein, which is 5 grams per muffin. The other 5 grams come from the yogurt, flour, oatmeal and egg. Note that each brand of protein powder may vary in the grams or protein per scoop because the scoop sizes are not standardized.

Does it matter how many grams is in the protien powder? What they have given my husband is 5 to 10 grams at the dialysis center and when l had to buy it, it has 60 grams. So far these have come out very dry. Dietitian comment: Yes it does matter and that's probably the reason your recipe turned out dry. Ask the dietitian for guidance on how much of the protein powder to use.

Want to make it but asked if I can make it with another type of oil besides olive oil as I am highly allergic to olives and olive oil....Dietitian comment: Yes you can use canola or other vegetable oils instead of olive oil.
