Eat yourself healthy: Apple cinnamon protein muffins

Cake to Kale

It’s the first in Cake to Kale‘s recipe series! My goal in this series is to provide macronutrient-friendly (meaning, optimal ratio of protein, carbs and fats) recipes that are perfect as post-workout meals or snacks. I will be writing more about macronutrients (“macros”) in an upcoming post. But for now, I present these warm and delicious (I made them the other night) apple cinnamon protein muffins!
