Muffins are just so good. They are like delicious, bald cupcakes and I love them!
The giant Costco muffins (especially the double chocolate ones) have always been some of my favorites. However, those giant muffins are loaded with processed sugar and ingredients. I’m all for balance and enjoying treats like that now and then, but I would never call those muffins a healthy option.
To be completely honest, I wasn’t trying to make a copycat Costco muffin, but I’m SO happy they turned out so good and so close to that delicious original.
Made with minimally processed ingredients, protein powder, omega-3s and even some collagen for good measure, I think you’ll love these healthier chocolate “Costco” muffins!
