Clean Eating Carob Chip Protein Muffins

Thank you all so much for the sweet comments on my engagement party pictures! We had such a good time and felt so blessed that everyone was able to be together to celebrate. Speaking of how much fun we had... we may or may not have had a little too much fun. As I'm sure most of you know, I try to only drink on holidays, special occasions, or vacations so naturally I had a few drinks at our party on Saturday. The too much fun came in after the party when we decided to go out to dinner with about 20 people from our party, and from then, well the night just continued and continued.... and continued. Sunday morning I quickly realized why it is I don't party like I did when I was 21 (and unhealthy) anymore, because it is painful! I tend to take pride in the fact that I take really good care of my body and always try to make the healthiest choices possible, and when I do something to throw my body off, it let's me know in the worst way.

I kid you not, only today do I feel back to 100%. I literally had a hangover for 3 days. I'm so glad you only get engaged once, because I am positive I wouldn't survive another one! Anyway, even though I felt like absolute death on Sunday I still had to do food prep, and I wanted to make the easiest thing possible for B's grab and go snacks. I was scrolling through my recipes and remembered how much he loves blueberry protein muffins, but I didn't have any blueberries so I switched up a couple minor things and made these awesome muffins. It's almost like dessert for breakfast!
