Your go-to morning muffin could pack as many as 600 calories, 80 grams of carbs, and 50 grams of sugar, with no nutritional value. In some cases, you might as well go all out and eat a candy bar.
But not all muffin recipes are created equal, especially when it comes to these protein muffins. Quinoa, wholemeal flour, coconut oil, and chia seeds team up for the perfect on-the-go healthy breakfast. Make a batch Sunday night and snag one every morning before you leave for work. Each one has 7 grams of protein and only 30 grams of carbs, so don't feel guilty about snagging two. Add your favorite fruit for a boost of sweetness. Get the protein muffin recipe here:
