Traditional muffins are right up there with donuts as a nutrition disaster. But it is easy to reinvent muffins into an on-the-go breakfast powerhouse. Add ham and cheese, upgrade the ever-favorite blueberry muffin, and be sure to give mini chocolate muffins a try.
Mini Chocolate Muffins
1 egg, beaten
3 tablespoons milk, skim
2 tablespoons sugar-free vanilla syrup
1 tablespoon canola oil
3 tablespoons pancake mix
2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa
1 scoop chocolate protein powder
