Low Fat, High Protein Muffins with Chocolate Chips

These are the best muffins ever when you want something sweet for breakfast. AND…drumroll please…they are good for you! Yep, these bad boys ring in at about 180 calories each. I’ve been eating them in the a.m. before my workout for some energy, they give me just that. You can add blueberries or raspberries if you prefer them over the chocolate chips. I prefer chocolate over anything. You’re welcome.
