Chocolate Protein Brownie Muffins

I'm always looking to satisfy my chocolate cravings and these brownie muffins have been the perfect remedy!  These muffins are thick and chewy and because they're high in protein, they'll help curb late night hunger and keep you feeling full until the next morning.  My favorite way to enjoy these is with a dollop of peanut butter - because what's better than chocolate and peanut butter!
