What Makes this Recipe Wonderful

Let talk about things that you can devour in one sitting: chips and dip, the bread bowls they bring to the table at a restaurant and those darn Little Debbie Mini Muffins. I think it’s because they are soo small and you can toss them back soo easy that you forget they are an ultra processed little muffins. Lucky for us this recipe will bring the joy back to all our lives and make sure we can continue to eat them at an unhinged speed and not feel one bit bad about it. Made with the best protein powder FlavCity along with simple ingredients including flour, maple syrup and coconut oil and baked into mini muffin pan these muffins pack a punch with out making you feel yucky afterwards. The first time I made them between Matt and the kids and I we ate the whole tray, they are that good.

You can use any sprinkles or jimmies (depending on what part of the country you live in) but of course these colorful ones are a fan favorite in our house, most likely because they remind everyone of rainbows and unicorns.
