Cinnamon Apple Protein Muffins
“My favorite meal-prep recipe right now is perfect for crisp days and allows me to stay on track with my diet,” says Christa Brown. “They are simple to make, have only clean ingredients, offer the perfect balance of nutrients to fuel my workouts and day (whole grains, saturated fats, and lots of protein), plus are easy to store, which is great for a busy weekday breakfast. Best of all, they taste like I’m cheating, but I’m not!”
