I eat a protein oatmeal muffin every weekday as a pre-workout meal. Some of my favorites are banana chocolate chip, carrot cake and peanut butter and jelly. They are all fantastic and keep me fueled for my entire workout, but sometimes I just get a chocolate craving and need something rich and decadent.

These chocolate peanut butter protein oatmeal muffins are just perfect for when the craving hits. They have chocolate protein powder, dark cocoa powder AND chocolate chips, a triple threat. Along with the peanut butter powder and peanut butter chips, it is almost like eating dessert for breakfast. They are slightly higher in calories than my other protein oatmeal muffins, but I am ok with that, because they provide more protein by almost 4 grams. Pro tip: I recommend heating these up and letting the chocolate chips melt for a true treat.
