RECIPE: Peanut Butter Banana Protein Muffins

here are a few background facts: 1. I choose to eat healthy. I like the way it makes me feel, how it helps my lifts + knowing that I'm doing my body good by feeding it well.

2. I write specifically designed menus for clients in order to help them reach their goals (be it fat loss, muscle gain, or general health).

3. I also write menus for myself, and for my boyfriend so he can be big and strong.

4. Occasionally, we like to veer off-menu and enjoy something spontaneous.

5. Spontaneous, scrumptious, but still nutritious.

  • Fill each muffin tin until you are out of batter.

  • The tops of your muffins should be a golden brown, and the chocolate chips should be beautiful and melty.
