Double Chocolate Protein Muffins

I redid the Double Chocolate Raspberry Muffins to add protein, reduce sugar and eliminate some hard to come-by items in the pantry...they are still just soooooo good!

E. H. Fitness Double Chocolate Protein Muffins

What you need:
  • 3/4 cup dry old fashioned oatmeal
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 12 drops liquid stevia
  • 1/2 cup plain pea protein powder* 
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup dairy free semi-sweet chocolate chips                                                                      (Trader Joe's regular chocolate chips are dairy-free!)
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened almond or coconut milk
  • 1/4 cup plus 1 tbsp unsweetened apple sauce (you can use oil here as well)
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 room temp eggs
What you do:
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees
  2. Line muffin tins with liners (or grease them)
  3. Put oats into a blender or food processor for 30 seconds (to make oat flour)
  4. Combine all dry ingredients in a large bowl and mix well, add chocolate chips
  5. Combine all wet ingredients in a separate bowl (make sure to whisk eggs)
  6. Mix wet and dry ingredients together 
  7. Put about 1/4 cup mixture into each liner
  8. Bake for 20-23 minutes.
  9. Cool before diving in!

*I find my plain pea protein powder for $11 at Trader Joes. But regular vanilla or chocolate protein powder will do great as well...just eliminate the stevia and one tsp vanilla!
