It’s safe to say that chocolate goes with just about anything. Last week I made a Chocolate Strawberry Banana Smoothie and it was so delicious I knew I had to use those flavor combinations again.

 


 

So I quickly whipped up a batch of Strawberry Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins for only 99 calories each! Don’t even ask me how many muffins I ate because I will shamelessly tell you that I ate 5 muffins in one sitting!

 

 

I used PEScience Gourmet Vanilla Protein Powder. Get 30% OFF all PEScience products by using code PBCHOCO at checkout.
