Chocolate protein power muffins are what hectic mornings dream of! Perfect to make-ahead and have ready for breakfast or snack. Plant based protein powder gives these an added protein boost that keeps you feeling full!

Starting the day off with a nourishing meal is important for recharging and energizing for the upcoming day, along with boosting brain function. But it can be hard fitting in time to eat a balanced meal and getting out the door on time. That’s why I really like the idea of muffins. They’re easy to eat and are transportable so they can be eaten on the bus or in carpool, or even upon reaching your destination.

These chocolate muffins are a ‘basic’ muffin that lends itself to many flavours; I’ve added a dollop of peanut butter and swirled it in before baking, so good! (you can use school safe seed butters if you plan on sending these for snack). Chocolate chips, dried cranberries or other fruit and nuts would also be delicious additions.
