Skinny Double Chocolate Chip Protein Muffins

Guest Post by Tatum Wood

Today I will be sharing with you some double chocolate, guilt-free goodness. I am a huge advocate for eating dessert and these muffins are packed with protein, thanks to the North Coast Naturals 100% Iso-Protein, and fibre from the Ultimate Daily Cleanse. This is a treat you can feel good about eating!

Skinny Double Chocolate Gluten-Free Protein Muffins

They are gluten and oil-free and can easily be made vegan and sugar-free with a few simple substitutions. When baking, I usually make small batches, so this recipe only yields six muffins however, you could easily double the recipe for a bigger batch.

PS – storing the muffins in the fridge gives them a fudge-y, chewy, brownie like texture. Yum!

Notes
*using full fat greek yogurt does wonders for the texture and helps counter act the dryness that sometimes occurs when baking with protein powder, sub dairy free yogurt or apple sauce or more banana for vegan
*use maple syrup for vegan
*make your own oat flour by grinding oats in a blender
*use dairy free chocolate chips for vegan
