Chocolate muffins with peanut butter protein cheesecake filling featuring Jamie Eason protein powder

chocolate muffins with peanut butter protein cheesecake filling

oops I did it again. To be honest, I was never much of a muffin person until I came up with this recipe. It all started when I made a chocolate stuffed pumpkin spice version (here) and I have been obsessively making variations of this recipe ever since.

These muffins are sinfully decadent and delicious but are still relatively healthy as they are made with whole grains and protein! So you can make those muffins and eat them, too 😉 Check out Aloha’s protein-packed recipes after trying these muffins for other healthy ideas!

Recipe is posted below but I also went ahead and made a “how-to” recipe video for you guys. Check it out:

  1. Yay! I love desserts with extra protein in em’ (I may also use this as a breakfast muffin <3)! I've been meaning to try making more baked goods with protein powder lately. Can't wait to try this out! :]
