I am not a fan of chili. Kidney beans…meat…just not my thing…
But I love cornbread!
Especially sweet cornbread.
So good, you won’t even miss the chili.
I use vanilla protein to add a little sweetness and…well…some protein!
Vanilla Cream Protein Isolate from iHeart Macros is my current go-to.
Kim30 will save you 30% if you want to try it out!
You can also try a cinnamon flavored protein or just add about 1/4 – 1/2 teaspoon of ground cinnamon to the batter for more of a pumpkin spice muffin.
Some of my favorite toppings are cream cheese, peanut butter, jam, or…
Eat them right away or just pop them in the microwave for 10 seconds.
The recipe makes 4 muffins.
At only about 100 calories each, I have eaten them all on countless occasions.
Great breakfast or lunch on-the-go!
