It’s officially summer and at my house and that means a busy schedule for my teenage boys. Summer time means camps and training for the activities they do year round. To make things a little crazier my oldest son got a job as a lifeguard at a local water park that keeps him busy on top of his normal schedule . I leave for work at 5:45AM everyday so I don’t have time to cook my kids breakfast . I was trying to come up with a way to get a little protein in their diet in the mornings. Move over cereal and pop tarts we have protein packed muffins.
These are super simple to make and I started them off with a protein pancake mix , any brand would do. Adding greek yogurt and peanut butter not only adds flavor it adds more protein. My kids love chocolate chip pancakes and muffins so adding them was a little bonus for them but they are only optional. While these are not a substitute for eggs and bacon they are a good option when in a hurry . These are like any other muffins and basically whip all the ingredients together and then fold in the chocolate chips. After spraying a mini muffin pan spoon the mixture into muffin wells. Bake in a preheated oven for eight to ten minutes.
