Apple & Vanilla protein muffins

These super-moist muffins are a snap to whip up! Make a quick batch right after dinner, let them cool while putting the kids to bed and pack them away before lights out for mom and dad. This is a quick and healthy breakfast option without having to fire up the oven first thing in the morning. Since we use real food in our recipes, these muffins are great alternatives to those dry, pre-boxed muffins found on supermarket shelves. Feel free to substitute your favorite dried fruits like blueberries, cherries, strawberries; whatever you like! After one batch, these will quickly become a go-to in your house !apple yogurt muffins1
