PROTEIN CHOCOLATECHIP MUFFINS

I’ve always been a chocolate-flavor kinda girl. It used to be about those giant bakery-style muffins with ultra-sugary crumb toppings, but I’ve come to realize you don’t need all that butter and sugar to have a fluffy, tender, perfectly sweet muffin. I even made a healthy version with my favorite new protein powder! A perfect snack before your workout or when you do not want to eat that much of sugar.

     PREPTIME 10 minutes

     BAKETIME  25 minutes

     PORTION 6-8 muffins

     INGREDIENTS

  • 2 mashed bananas
  • 120 grams oatmeal or oat flour
  • 100 ml almond milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 scoops chocolate protein powder (i used OrangeFit)
  • 2 tablespoons cacao powder
  • 20 grams chocolatechips
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • a pinch of sea salt

       METHOD

  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C.
  2. Melt a tablespoon of coconut oil and grease the muffin cases. 
  3. Combine oatmeal, baking powder, cinnamon, protein powder, cacao powder and sea salt in a large mixing bowl. 
  4. In a separate bowl, beat the eggs using a whisk, then add almond milk, maple syrup and coconut oil and whisk to combine.
  5. Finely mash the bananas with a fork until creamy. Add the bananas to the wet ingredients.
  6. Take a handful of chocolate chips and combine with the dry and wet ingredients in the large mixing bowl. Make a stir. 
  7. Fill the muffin liners 3/4 of the way up and bake them for 20-25 minutes.
