Peanut Butter Sweet Potato Protein Muffins

Y’all…Thanksgiving is THURSDAY.

That means crunch time.

Are you cooking a big feat for your family? Or are you going out to a four-star catered Thanksgiving brunch with relatives?

If it’s the first option, you probably have some prepping to do.

No big deal.

Just relax.

Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday.

Usually my dad and I cook a huge feast, but unfortunately he is out of the country for business and this Thanksgiving is going to be a bit different.

Sad face.

But, heres to a bit of change for once.

I guess I need to embrace it.

Before we all indulge.

Let me give you a shot of healthiness.

We are making muffins.

With this awesome protein powder that Nuzest sent me.

I chose to use their Cappuccino flavor in these muffins because I’m a coffee freak, so ya.

However, they were kind enough to send me a sample of their Strawberry, Vanilla, and Chocolate protein powders as well.

These muffins are ahhhhhbsolutely delicious.

I am usually very picky about my protein powders but after I did my research of Nuzest I got really excited.

Usually, I can’t find a protein powder without the word whey or a ton of other ingredients in it that I haven’t heard of.

Nuzest changes all of that.

Nuzest has developed what they call their “Clean, Lean, and Green” protein formula that consists of 100% vegetable protein isolate from European Golden Peas.

What shocked me even more is that each protein powder has five or less ingredients in it!

What the what?

Oh, not to mention this stuff is free of GMO’s, gluten-free, soy-free, and dairy-free!

A++++

Seriously, your muffins just got ten times better.

It’s definitely a protein powder that you can feel good about.

Plus, the combo of peanut butter, banana, and sweet potato is absolutely fall-tastic.
