Chocolate Protein Muffins

My husband and I have been trying to eat healthier and get in shape.  I have no problem getting regular exercise, but trying to eat healthy is so hard for me!

I have such a sweet tooth!  I decided to try and make a treat that was low in calorie, sweet and had protein to help keep me feeling full longer.

These muffins hit the spot!  They are chocolaty and sweet enough that you feel like you are eating dessert, but you don’t have to feel guilty about it!

Each muffin is only 95 calories and has 3 grams of protein!
