Like everyone else, I love the doughnuts, muffins and bagels for breakfast. The problem with all of those are the empty carbs that leave you feeling hungry and sluggish. I decided to make a healthy muffin that is packed with protein to keep me full and satisfy my craving for sweets.

These chocolate protein muffins have 11g of protein per muffin! They are dense, but soft and and chewy. They are gluten free, dairy free, eggless and low in sugar.

What makes these Chocolate Protein Muffins healthy?

Gluten Free Almond Flour: I used gluten free almond flour in this recipe rather than bleached white flour. Almond flour is low in carbs yet high in healthy fats and fiber. It is a great source of protein and won’t spike blood sugar levels.

Protein: This recipe has protein powder in it making these muffins more of a meal. They are filling and give you 11g of protein per muffin. Here is the protein powder I like to use.

Dairy free: We don’t have any dairy allergies in my family, but many people are lactose intolerant. Dairy typically adds more calories to any dish and has little nutritional benefit.

Low in sugar: Have you ever tried apple butter? It has no sugar added and makes the perfect sweetener for these chocolate protein muffins. The only sugar found in these muffins are from natural sources.

Heart healthy fats: Instead of using butter or canola oil, this recipe uses coconut oil to keep them moist. Coconut oil is solid at room temp so you just need to melt it for a few seconds to use in this recipe.

Are Chocolate Protein Muffins Vegan?

Yes! Just make sure you use a vegan chocolate protein powder.

  1. Almond Flour

Protein muffins can freeze very well with no loss of nutritional value. Store them in a ziplock freezer bag for up to 3 months. Defrost on the counter one hour prior to eating.
