Dessert is calling…but it’s only 9 a.m. Knock out two predicaments with one delicious recipe. When you can’t stomach another egg white and spinach omelet for breakfast but still need a protein punch to start your day, grab a fruity muffin to fill you up. You’ll squash that sweet craving without negating all the sweat equity you earned in the gym this morning.
You all suggested I make something that did not include peanut butter. I hope this does the trick — just don’t forget to eat your daily spoonful at a later time. Just kidding. Enjoy your protein however you like it best. Maybe this muffin mix will be your new favorite protein treat.
