3-Ingredient Chocolate-Peanut Butter Muffins

by | Updated: December 2nd, 2016

You’re on a tight schedule. Whipping up a batch of fresh-baked muffins that doesn’t come from an over-processed box mix is just not going to fit into your day. Not to mention all the hassle it takes to swap the bad ingredients for good (does applesauce sub for butter or sugar?). Waste no more time converting, stirring and cleaning. Healthy, protein muffins are ready in 10 minutes with three ingredients you probably already have on hand. You might literally have these in your hand right now.
