High-Protein Chocolate Muffins

These amazing muffins are a healthy way to enjoy the benefits of chocolate and protein, any time of day. And you can make them in just 30 minutes!

Eggs, almond flour, and Greek yogurt give these muffins a fluffy texture as well as 10 grams of protein each. Rich dark chocolate provides antioxidants, magnesium, and energy-boosting theobromine to support the entire body. High-quality dark chocolate is the only form of sweetener in these muffins, making them perfectly fudgy without tasting sugary. 

I know you’ll love them as much as I do!

Wishing you health and happiness,
