Vegan Chocolate Chip Protein Muffins

As much as I love fitness and healthy eating there are just some things I WILL NOT give up…and those things include wine and desserts. But you know what they say…everything in moderation, right??  So I try my best not to deprive myself of the things I love by exercising moderation, which is key.  I’ve looked for and try to come up with various healthy dessert ideas and found one for a chocolate chip protein muffin that I decided to try with my own tweaks by making a vegan version of it.  And while these muffins taste great warm they taste even better chilled!  Who doesn’t want to enjoy a chocolate dessert without all the guilt??  Salivating yet?  Well read on to check out the recipe!

Vegan Chocolate Chip Protein Muffins

This recipe consists of all plant-based products such as plant-based protein and egg replacer.  But if desired honey can be used as an added sweetener (making it non-vegan).

Ingredients

  • 1 banana ripe
  • 1 scoop plant-based protein powder
  • 1 1/2 - 2 tbsp peanut butter regular or chocolate
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk sweetened is optional for more sweetness
  • 1/4 cup vegan mini chocolate chips
  • egg replacer equivalent to 1 whole egg per instructions)
  • 1/4 cup almond flour other flours work too but this is preferred for taste

Instructions

  1. Add all ingredients except chocolate chips to high-speed blender such as Nutribullet or Ninja and blend until batter is a bit thickened.

  2. After ingredients have been blended (mixture should be thickened and may have a few remaining lumps, which is OK), gradually stir in chocolate chips.

  3. Pour mixture into muffin cups and bake on 375 for 16-18 minutes.  Don't be alarmed about muffins caving in some...this is a result of the banana, which adds moisture.  Depending on what type of peanut butter you chose to use (regular or chocolate), the muffins will turn out a light or dark brown color.

Recipe Notes

I typically chill the muffins in the fridge for about 10 minutes before eating.  And because of the added banana I recommend storing them in the fridge, as well.  Enjoy!
