Raspberry Chocolate Protein Muffins

Raspberry Chocolate Protein Muffins

This Pounamu Proteiner ate three muffins while taking these photographs, so yes, they are tasty.  My husband had two before he headed to the gym this evening and agreed with me.  I don't think they will last long in our kitchen as he had another when he finished his workout along with his Pounamu shake.

These protein muffins can be made with a variety of Pounamu Protein powders; we recommend our Beauty Protein blend as the flavors compliment the ingredients, but our natural, chocolate and vanilla whey protein concentrates also work a treat!  

Tip: We used frozen raspberries - they are just as delicious and the results are the same as if you used fresh.
