These Double Chocolate-Covered Strawberry-Banana Protein Muffins are the perfect blend of treat meets healthy snack. Each fluffy, rich chocolate bite is loaded with whole grain oats, bananas, a hint of berry, cinnamon, rich virgin coconut oil and an extra dose of chocolate.

Last Friday I popped over to the Montage Hotel, a gorgeous hotel located around the corner from Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills. I was there to attend a celebrity gifting suite to promote my book 365 Vegan Smoothies. This event invited actors, producers and media in and around the television industry to mingle, celebrate the Emmy Awards and collect a boatload of free goodies. Events like these are always more fun with friends, so I invited Sophie from Philosophie to help me blend smoothies and chat with the guests.
