They are so decadent and fudgy, and the best part is they are made with good-for-you ingredients and simple pantry staples!
Ingredients for these chocolate protein muffins
- Avocado. This is what makes these muffins so fudgy and soft!
- Banana. The banana in this recipe will help add some natural sweetness to these muffins.
- Almond Milk. You can use almond milk or any plant milk of your choice!
- Maple Syrup. To add some natural sweetness to these double chocolate muffins!
- Vanilla Extract. For a splash of extra flavour.
- Cocoa Powder. What makes these muffins so chocolatey and delicious, of course.
- Chocolate Protein Powder. Adding chocolate protein powder is definitely a must, because nothing is better than a double chocolate treat. I love using Good Protein protein powder because it’s vegan, super smooth and so easy to mix in to any recipe. Most vegan protein powders can be very chalky when blending, but this one is the best I’ve ever tried! It is so smooth and has an incredible flavour. I love that you can’t taste that there’s protein powder in these muffins, and the taste is just chocolate. You can use my code RIRI30 to save 30% (!!!) off your purchase!
- Baking Powder + Baking Soda. To make these muffins extra fluffy.
- All-Purpose Flour. This is always my go-to flour to use in recipes because of how easy and simple it is to mix into anything. I haven’t tested this recipe with another flour so cannot guarantee how it would turn out, however I think that a 1:1 gluten-free flour might work, just because it is a 1:1 flour. If you try it out and it works, please let me know!
- Chocolate Chips. Because everything needs chocolate chips!
Tips on making the best double chocolate vegan protein muffins
- Use a food processor or blender. Because this recipe calls for an avocado and banana, I recommend adding all your ingredients to a food processor or blender and blending all ingredients together. This makes the baking process so much easier and only requires one bowl to be washed!
- Fold in your chocolate chips. Add your chocolate chips in after blending all your other ingredients first until smooth, then use a spatula to fold in your chocolate chips so they don’t get blended and crushed with your other ingredients.
- Use a cookie scooper to scoop your muffin batter. This will ensure the same size of all your muffins before baking!
- EXTRA TIP: Fill empty muffin cups with water. This recipe makes about 10 muffins, so if you have two empty muffin cups, make sure to fill them about halfway with some water. This will even promote even baking in your muffins and have them not spill over when they bake!
How to store these protein muffins
Place these double chocolate vegan protein muffins in an airtight container in the fridge for up to one week.
