High protein chocolate PB muffins!

chocmuffins

Wow, I have reinvented an old recipe and all I have to say is WOW!!!  This stuff is amazing.

You can use any chocolate whey protein you want. I happen to have Designer whey in hand, but there other ones that taste better or have a better carb to protein profile.

Here are my ingredients of this experimental batch:

  • 28g coconut flour
  • 26g flaxseed meal
  • 1 egg
  • 3 scoops whey protein powder-chocolate
  • 20g Lilly’s dark chocolate (you can use chips or melt the block and blend in)
  • 4bsp PB2 defatted peanut butter powder
  • 1/2c almond milk
  • 1/4c nonfat greek yogurt
  • 2-4tbsp unsweetened cocoa

Directions: pretty simple, just mix the dry ingredients and blend in the wet ingredients.  You can melt the dark chocolate or you can add in chips.

Bake at 350 for 15 minutes

If making a full batch, you will need to double the ingredients and baking time.

Each muffin:

124 calories, 6g fat, 11g carbs, 6g fiber, 14g protein

-9g hormonal carbs
