Chocolate Protein Muffins with Peanut Butter Frosting

My husband and I are training for our first triathlon. I always wanted to do one so I convinced Adrian to do one with me this year. He wasn’t very convinced at first so I had to play the “it’s my 30th birthday” card, so he basically has no choice.

I am very excited and nervous at the same time. I love running and cycling but it is the swimming part that worries me. Anyway, we have been training a lot. Every day we tried to train at two different sports, meaning we run and swim or cycle and swim or run and cycle. By the end of our workouts, we are so hungry we would literally eat whatever is in front of us first. That’s why I decided to have something prepare in advance so that we wouldn’t have to reach to the first available option which most of the time was not healthy or not enough proteins to help us replenish.

Nutritional Information

These Chocolate Protein Muffins with Peanut Butter Frosting are low in calories, high in fiber and protein to keep us feel full for longer. We usually eat them along with some greek yogurt and fresh fruit.

My favorite thing about this muffins is the peanut butter frosting. I wasn’t very sure it was going to turn out good and it actually turned up being delicious! And the combination is just perfect! I mean chocolate and peanut butter? It’s a no brainer.

To make the frosting all you have to do is combine one can of coconut milk, 1/4 cup peanut butter and 2 tbsp agave in a stovetop. Then add arrowroot powder and boil. Stir frequently until you get a thicker consistency. Key: Make sure you place this in the fridge for at least 2 hours before spreading it to the cupcakes.

Each muffin is only 120 calories and has 3gr of protein. You can prepare them in less than 10 minutes and only takes a few minutes to bake.
