Ask The Muscle Cook: Know A Healthy Muffin Recipe?

Fitness nutrition doesn't have to be the same ol' boiled chicken breasts and broccoli. I can help you turn plain and boring into amazing and delicious!

My assignment for a potluck brunch is muffins. Is there any way I can do it without going down to Sugar Town?

It is certainly possible!

Most muffins are over-stuffed with sugar, making them useless in anyone's muscle-building or fat-loss diet plans. But, with a few substitutions, muffins can actually have some nutritious value.

These muffins have very low sugar content, combined with a high protein count, compared their store-bought brethren.
