There are few things in life that bring us quite as much joy as chocolate, and did you know that if you play your cards (and recipe) right, chocolate can totally be part of a healthy diet? Don’t believe us? The proof is in the
pudding muffins. You’ll eat your words (and probably the whole batch) when you see the recipe for these clean chocolate protein muffins courtesy of our fabulous friend The Fit Foodie.

At the perfect little size, a clean chocolate protein muffin is an ideal go-to whether you need a little somethin’ somethin’ post workout, after dinner or to cure your 3:30itis.
