Cake Batter Protein Muffins with Dark Chocolate

March 25, 2014

You truly can have the best of both worlds when it comes to healthy eating. Lose weight, build muscle, eliminate fat, and still eat delicious foods. Monday night I was having an awful sweet craving. That is usually when I create my most fun recipes, and that is what I did with this one. These muffins are delicious, clean, and very filling. They would make a great breakfast additionally. There are 8g of protein per muffin!

What you need:
- 1 scoop of Pro Whey Cake Batter flavored whey protein, purchase here
- 1 cup of Coconut flour, purchase here
- 1 1/4 cup of Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk
- 2 eggs
- 2 egg whites
- 1 tablespoon of vanilla extract
- 1 teaspoon of baking powder
- 5 packs of Stevia
- Dark chocolate morsels (1/2 cup to 3/4 cup)
*I suggest coconut flour because it is much lower in calories than other flours, including oats. It is also very high in fiber, gluten free, and paleo friendly. 

What you do:
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees
- Coat 12-count muffin tin thoroughly with nonstick spray.
     *Using muffin cupcake or muffin wrappers would be ideal I learned.
-Place all ingredients in a large bowl and mix with a spoon until everything is thoroughly blended.
     *I place the chocolate chips on top separately after I have poured the batter into the pan. I like mine to still be a little hard when the muffins are finished, but that is your choice.
- Pour batter 3/4 of the way full into the separate spaces on the tray
- Bake for 35-40 minutes or until golden on top.
- Let cook for 5 minutes then enjoy!

  1. Holy YUM! Love recipes that are delish and healthy :)

    You should add this to our recipe link up over on my and Emily's blogs today!

  2. Mouth. Watering. I'm definitely making these. I need to get some coconut flour.

  3. These look so good. Two questions- do you think if I used another form of protein the muffins would turn out the same? It is still whey, just not cake batter flavored. Question 2 - where the heck do you get your coconut flour? Every time I try to buy it it's out or the grocery store doesn't carry it. Thank you!!!

  4. These look so good. I love coconut flour and use it for pancakes so I need to give these a try.
