Glazed Cinnamon Protein Muffins
Cinnamon doesn’t go out of style. Though it has that cozy-by-the-fireplace feel you’d find in hot apple cider, it’s still well received in warmer months sprinkled over summer squash or blended into frozen drinks. Among all of those creative possibilities, cinnamon’s best applique is in baked goods. Exhibit A: this protein muffins recipe is woven with protein and sports a shiny glazed top. Make a batch and you’ll steal the show.
