A tasty recipe for muffins made with protein powder, peanut butter and some other good for you ingredients. Swap your morning muffin for one of these. Most of the muffins you find in the convenience store are probably one of the worst things you can grab on the go. Most are over 400 calories and loaded with processed ingredients.

The recipe she used was always so chocolate-y and gooey and delicious, which I am sure also meant it was loaded with lots of sugars and flours and other ingredients that made them extremely unhealthy. When I made this batch of brownies I had a few male taste testers over and when they asked what it was made with they were shocked to hear bl ...
