Double chocolate 2-minute protein muffin

I can’t believe that Winter Shape Up is over!! <3

Thank you again to all of you for your awesome check-ins, feedback, energy and motivation. Our Facebook group was an extra-amazing place to be this past month. I was blown away by the photos, insight and support that these fabulous ladies shared with one another. Another incredible thing? Not ONE incident of negativity. I wasn’t really expecting any, but you never know… In this case, everyone has been truly awesome and I’m so stoked that you all enjoyed the Shape Up.

I’m sad to say goodbye to this year’s challenge, but am confident that we can continue to make them better and better thanks to your helpful feedback. I’m already scheming for Summer Shape Up, which will be here before we know it. :)

So today I thought I’d share a snack I’ve been enjoying quite a bit lately: a take on the protein muffin in a mug.

I can’t post this recipe without giving props to Deb, who first gave me the idea for protein mug muffins a few years ago. I’ve played around with her recipe in the past, but lately have been using my own combo. It transformed from “let’s throw random things in a mug and microwave it” into a legit actual recipe. It’s always nice when that happens ;) It’s not the most visually appealing snack idea, but since I love it so much, I figured we could put some lipstick, err peanut butter on this pig and take some pics ;)
