Chocolate Protein Muffins

These Chocolate Protein Muffins are simple, delicious, and full of flavor. You are going to love how quick they come together and how easy they are to make. I felt like I was eating a brownie, they were so thick and chocolatey.

My husband and I have been trying to eat healthier and get in shape.  I have no problem getting regular exercise, but trying to eat healthy is so hard for me.

I needed a food that would satisfy my sweet tooth, but not ruin my calorie intake or goals.

I have such a sweet tooth. I decided to try and make a treat that was low in calorie, sweet and had protein to help keep me feeling full longer.

These muffins hit the spot. They are chocolaty and sweet enough that you feel like you are eating dessert, but you don’t have to feel guilty about it.

You just get stronger when you eat them. It’s a win win.

Each muffin is only 95 calories and has 3 grams of protein. They come together in a matter of minutes, and only take a few minutes to bake.

I seriously couldn’t even tell they were “healthy” because they tasted like a brownie.

My kids even asked for a second one, but were too full to finish it. It’s full of delicious, healthy, and good ingredients that will make both you and your body healthy.

  1. Just made these, the taste is awesome. I used coconut milk and flour. I cooked the first batch and found them to be extremely dry so the 2nd batch I cooked I added a little veg oil, it helped but still a dry muffin. Will have to tweak the recipe because they taste great and the coconut flour and milk made it a great combo. Any suggestions for a moister muffin?
    • The simple answer is add more liquid and egg(s), but I recommend looking up about coconut flour. It is different from grain flours and cannot be substituted without adaptations. Generally, use less flour, probably with another alternative flour and more eggs and liquid. I have a recipe for banana bread that uses only 1/2 c. of coconut flour, 3 TBL tapioca flour and 3 or 4 eggs and some other things. It's delicious but I don't know if I should plug someone else's site on this one, so do a search and learn about coconut flour. It has good fiber and protein and is very filling. If it is ok to say, the website is called roasted root, but I learned about coconut flour from various websites.
