Muffins make great on-the-go snacks but aren't always made with the healthiest ingredients. These light, fluffy, chocolatey muffins take barely any time to prepare and are packed with nutrients to help keep you full between meals, stabilise blood sugar and give you a natural energy boost. They're also packed with protein, fibre, magnesium and potassium making them an ideal post-workout snack for muscle recovery and brain fuel or make a nice treat for afternoon tea.
