The BEST chocolate protein muffins!
Because I cannot live without some chocolate in my life!
I’ve played around with lots of protein boosted dessert recipes before but I always end up with shiney, spongey, gross results. On Sunday I was craving chocolate and feeling brave so I decided to try to put together my own chocolate protein muffin recipe, and damn! These are so freakin’ good and really easy to make. Here’s what you need:
½ ripe avocado
1/8 cup coconut oil
⅔ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
4 egg whites
3 scoops chocolate protein powder
4 tablespoons agave nectar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup rice flour
1/4 cup almond meal flour (optional)
2/3 cup unsweetened applesauce or vanilla greek yogurt
1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
Blend it all up in your blender until smooth then
Stir in ¾ cup dark chocolate chunks or cocoa nibs. I actually use a blend of both.
Spoon into silicone muffin pan and bake at 350 degrees F until toothpick comes out clean and enjoy!
I really impressed myself on this one guys. If you try them I want to know what you think!
