Chocolate Protein Muffin

These rich, chocolate-y muffins are full of protein, healthy fat, and nutrients without the blood-sugar imbalances you get from regular muffins made with wheat flour.

They are like brownies and you could even have one for breakfast (or two – who’s counting?)

Who doesn’t love chocolate for breakfast?

  • 2 cup almond flour Bob's Red Mill  or any brand
  • 1/4 cup flaxseed meal acts as egg replacer; can use 1 egg instead of flaxmeal
  • 1/2 cup protein powder
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder unsweet
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon ground
  • 1/4 cup melted butter or coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/4 cup (optional) sugar optional – taste batter before adding – you may not need if your protein powder was pre-sweetened


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

  2. Grease a muffin tin and set aside.

  3. In a medium sized mixing bowl, combine dry ingredients.

  4. Form a well in center of dry ingredients and pour in wet ingredients. Stir to combine. Batter will be sticky and thick.

  5. Portion mixed batter into muffin tin.

  6. Bake for 15-20 minutes, until firm to touch. Be careful not to burn.

  7. Let cool on counter for 30 minutes. Place muffin tin in fridge for several hours; this makes it easier to take muffins out of muffin pan. If you don't use eggs, these muffins are very light and fragile right out of the oven.
