I recently discovered chocolate chips that are sweetened with erythritol and stevia, and they are inspiring all things chocolate chip over here! So today you have giant, filling, gluten-free, totally healthy Chocolate Chip Protein Muffins!

The chocolate chips can be found here at Amazon.

I wanted to keeps the carbs low with these Chocolate Chip Protein Muffins, so I made them with a pea protein blend (Warrior Blend) rather than whey. With whey, we’d have to add a bit of carbs to get the proper cake texture (like with my Sweet Potato Protein Cupcakes or my Banana Pudding Protein Cake). With pea protein, we can skip the carbs. And to really get a great muffin/cake texture, add a little oil and Greek yogurt. This isn’t a very sweet muffin (then I would have called it cake!) but you can always add in some coconut sugar or more erythritol, if you like!

Ingredients
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 325F (163C).
  2. Mix the egg whites, oil, and yogurt until smooth and well combined.
  3. Add in protein powder, almond meal, sweetener, baking powder, and salt. Mix well.
  4. Fold in chocolate chips.
  5. Spoon into 4 large silicone muffin cups, and set on a baking tray.
  6. Bake for about 24 minutes, and check to see if they are done (firm and a toothpick comes out clean). If not, check every 1-2 minutes.
  7. Let cool, and enjoy! These can stay out for several hours or overnight. For longer periods, store in the refrigerator.
Notes
A note about substitutions: because each type of protein powder has a distinct flavor and texture when baked, I would not try substituting different types of protein powders in this recipe (other than pea protein or pea blends). (See my Recipe Basics video for examples of what goes wrong when you use the wrong protein powder.) You can sub coconut oil for the almond oil, if you like.
