Cinnamon Apple Protein Muffins

Healthy cinnamon apple protein muffins to help fuel your workouts.

Well, we put a shout out on Facebook to see if anyone could make Starbucks Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffins which boast a whopping 420 calories, 13g of fat and 47g of sugar a little healthier and sadly we got nothin’! However, lucky for us one of our members, Michelle Hamilton, gave us this great recipe for Cinnamon Apple Protein Muffins. And even better, we got a taste test! We love taste tests … hint, hint!! 

The muffins are a great way to satisfy your sweet tooth or even before a strength training class to help fuel your way through those tough workouts. She was kind enough to give us the recipe to share with all of you. Enjoy!
