It’s the holiday season and of course you’re running around shopping, cooking, and preparing. It’s normal to consume extra calories in November and December. If we really calculate things, the celebrations are a small portion of those two months. The good news is you do not have to sacrifice all of your hard work through the year in these two months. You can be sure to eat well the other days of the month and these Oatmeal Chia Protein Muffins make that possible.
These muffins are flavored with cinnamon, a little brown sugar and dried cranberries. They are not overly sweet. I use Kodiak Cakes Protein Packed pancake mix for these muffins. I rarely use shortcuts like this, but their pancake mix is so clean. You can read every single ingredient on the box. I really cannot prepare anything better from scratch, and it makes these muffins possible with one bowl. Not only are Oatmeal Chia Protein Muffins good for you, but they are easy too. I’ve given you virtually no excuse to hit the drive through while you’re out shopping.
Make up a batch of these muffins and get back to work my elves! With chia seeds, oats, and extra protein, you’ll be able to handle whatever the holiday has in store.
