Hello friends! Today I’m sharing one of my new favorite health-ier desserts!

As my husband knows, I love anything chocolate.

Last week I decided to combine two of my favorite things – chocolate and muffins!

Somehow, I haven’t made muffins in probably 2 years.

I forgot about how soft and chewy and perfect they could be.

Well let me tell you, after this recipe muffins are coming back to my life!

For this recipe, I used my favorite brand of protein powder, Sunwarrior to replace part of the flour.

Sunwarrior is my favorite protein powder because it is gluten free, soy free, raw, and vegan!

My personal favorite flavor in shakes is the natural, but I used vanilla for this recipe.

I love adding protein powder to this recipe to up the nutritional value.

Adding 3 scoops of protein powder = the perfect excuse to eat these bad boys for breakfast.

Because who doesn’t want a rich double chocolate muffin for breakfast?!

I was in love at first bite.

I hinted on my facebook page that I may or may not have eaten 7 of these the first day…all in the name of recipe testing, right?! 😉
I really enjoyed having these as a mid morning snack or dessert when I got that chocolate craving late at night.

I also packed them in my hubby’s lunches and he loved them!

The key to a perfect dessert for me is that it’s sweet without making me feel awful.

These muffins are perfectly sweet, but made using healthier ingredients so that they don’t make my heart race from all the sugar.

Could you use oat flour or all protein for these and coco powder instead of raw cacao powder. I have everything but those ingredients and I am trying to give up sweets so this would be the perfect recipe.

Oat flour does not act the same as protein powder in this recipe, so I do not think that would work. You could substitute whole wheat flour for the protein powder and it should work (I think, I have not tried it.) You could definitely use the chocolate sunwarrior in place of the vanilla flavor. You could substitute coco powder for the cacao powder! Let me know how it turns out!
