GG {next level} Muffins

IMG_8735.jpeg

When you need something filling, delicious, sweet, fiber packed, protein packed and EASY. These are the muffins you need. Inspired by a post I saw from the F-Factor RDs this week - I added a little HSH twist by boosting up the protein content. These are a great option for breakfast - I would suggest 2 of them + a little nut butter and some extra fruit, or one as a snack (depending on your needs maybe adding a little nut butter on top for snack as well!) OR even one as dessert with a little chocolate coconut butter melted on top :) - and yes I have had them all three ways since I made them...on Sunday. They are THAT good.

Only thing I would change next time -- I would add in shredded zucchini - I am sure those of you who know me, are shocked. If you want to try - try 1 whole zucchini shredded and added to the recipe below! 

Enjoy!!! ((and tell me your favorite way to eat them + if you try the zucchini, send one my way!))
