Hello again, today I have some muffins for you, BUT there's a catch… there actually healthy and good for you *gasps*
I know what your thinking, how can these super chocolate muffins be healthy? 

Well for starters this recipe uses quinoa flour and it has a bunch of fruit aaaanndddd super protein powder.
I picked up this fantastic breakfast recipe from Suzy Brown (she's a awesome nutrition counselor)…. sooooo credit to her:)
Basically I love making these ahead of time and freezing them to reheat for a fast breakfast the next morning. My brother (who is not the best eater) always gets so excited when I make 'em.

Go go give them a try! I know some of the ingredients look a little scary, but trust me it tastes fantastic together.
