Healthy Chocolate Berry Muffins Your BAE Will Love Too

Hello, stud muffin! 💕


In case ya didn't know, Brian is an AMAZING chef! He's always whipping together our dinners and cooking me absolutely de-lish meals. The "lean bowl" from the #TIU31 Meal Plan was actually 100% inspired by Brian and what he cooks almost every night! This year for Valentine's Day, I wanted to make something special for him. I put together a totally yum gluten-free muffin recipe that uses Perfect Fit Protein and almond meal as the base. And it's an absolute dream. This sweet treat contains 8 grams of protein and 5 grams of fiber to keep you satisfied all the way to lunch time. Whip up a batch of these and share with your boyfriend, dad, brother, grandpa, uncle, and any other studs you've got in your life! ;)

  1. Ok so am I the only one confused about cocoa vs cacao powder? I mean I know they are different, and I have both, but I was wondering if cacao powder would work in this recipe instead and also wondering a bit about the difference nutritionally when trying to eat healthy. It seems like a lot of the TIU recipes call for cacao rather than cocoa plus I always used cocoa in the past for my unhealthy baking… What makes one better than the other in certain recipes

  2. They were ‘wet’ and the strawberries turned into brownish-gray dollops of slime, as I suspected they might. Still looking for good healthy ‘splurge’ like recipes. Where is the ‘desserts’ tab? I thought there used to be one. There needs to be one. And I second the question about cocoa vs cacao. On to google it now.
