A High-Protein Muffin Recipe For Busy Mornings

These protein muffins are perfect for your breakfast meal prep.

When it comes to breakfast, you can't really go wrong with the heavenly combination of a muffin and a cup of coffee. But without any protein, that small breakfast won't leave you feeling very full. Instead, pack those muffins with some extra protein powder! These protein muffins are stuffed with protein to give you that morning boost that you need. Between the eggs, the protein powder, and the Greek yogurt, you'll be feeling full and satisfied until your next meal.

Keep in mind, these muffins will not store well on the shelf. You'll want to store them in an air-tight container in the refrigerator during the week. The muffins will go bad quickly if you leave them out on a counter or shelf at room temperature.
