Chocolate Chip Protein Muffins

Chocolate Chip Protein Muffins

Chocolate Chip Protein MuffinsI am always on the look out for new high protein foods that taste yummy and that my kids will eat.  My boys can be a little picky when it comes to certain protein foods.  These Chocolate Chip Protein Muffins past the test! They are delicious, filling because they are made with 100% wheat flour, and they past the kid test.  Both of my little guys loved them, especially because they spotted chocolate chips.

These are perfect for a quick breakfast on the go, snack or post workout meal being a great blend of protein and good carbohydrates.  Just make a batch and store in a air tight container for easy convenient healthy food.

I found this Protein Pancake Mix at Costco, but I have also seen it in other grocery stores.

When I make the Pancakes, to add even more protein, I like to add an egg, use milk instead of water and add vanilla Greek yogurt.  My kiddos really like them and I am a happy mommy knowing they are getting a great amount of protein and bonus, this easy way to make pancakes or waffles is made with 100% whole wheat flour! I love it!
