Cashew Butter Chocolate Chunk Protein Muffins!
These muffins are a great way to start your morning! They are fluffy, oozing with dark chocolate, and packed with protein! I love these muffins because there is only honey and one banana to sweeten them. That along with the cashew butter and protein powder keeps you full and energized throughout the morning. They are great for after school snacks and my kids love to grab one before a sports practice. This recipe yields around 15 muffins and they are gone before you know it!
