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.
