Move over massive chocolate muffins from Costco and make room for these decadent Chocolate Peppermint Protein Muffins.

These Chocolate Peppermint Protein Muffins are the perfect healthier muffin for the holiday season!

The kids have been asking for reindeer pancakes and santa waffles and everyone has had their daily amount of sugar by 9am, which calls for an easy and protein filled muffin. These Chocolate Peppermint Protein Muffins are the perfect substitution for these final sugar fueled days before Christmas, when everyone wants all the holiday flavors but we maybe need to add some non sweet treats to the mix. 

Like all the other mini muffins on the site these come together extremely easily with all the ingredients coming together in a single bowl. Use any size muffins tin or even a loaf pan and you can have these Chocolate Peppermint Protein Muffins on the table with some chopped fruit in no time.
