31 g of protein in each of these delicious chocolate chip protein muffins! Great for meal prep as a high protein breakfast. Gluten free, too! The plant protein gives them a great texture, and the stevia-sweetened chocolate chips add a touch of sweet. Perfect!
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 ). 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!
This recipe makes 4 large muffins, and each makes a great, filling high protein breakfast or snack. I hope you'll give these Chocolate Chip Protein Muffins a try!
