Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Muffins

IMG_8743

Who else agrees that one of the best flavor combinations of ALL-TIME is that of chocolate and peanut butter?! If you raised your hand (and/or jumped up and down), then this recipe is definitely for you. Of course, the peanut butter flavor can always be made to be more prominent, but I went for more subtlety on these little pieces of heaven. This recipe is pretty similar to my “Snickers” Muffins from a while back, but is a little bit more macro friendly where fats are concerned.

Of course, you don’t have to use these particular brands of baking mixes or protein powders, but they are what I have found the best success with and they are companies which I fully trust to provide quality products with no gimmicks or BS.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Muffins

Yields: 24 servings

INGREDIENTS:

🔸106g FlapJacked Buttermilk Protein Pancake & Baking Mix

🔸1 packet FlapJacked Protein Smoothie with Greek Yogurt in Milk Chocolate

🔸1/2 package (approximately 20g) sugar free instant pudding & pie filling mix in chocolate

🔸60mL unsweetened cashew milk

🔸2 whole eggs

🔸138g liquid egg whites

🔸387g (approx 3-5 small to medium size) ripe bananas, mashed

🔸48g of chocolate powdered peanut butter (I used Better Body Foods PBFit)

🔸30g unsweetened cocoa powder

🔸150g plain Greek yogurt (I used 0% here)

🔸1 scoop (30g) De Novo Nutrition Max MPS Whey Protein in Candy Bar

🔸liquid stevia or sucralose to taste, about 30-40 drops

🔸1/2 tsp baking soda

🔸1/2 tsp baking powder

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. Place bananas in a bowl and mash until smooth. Add all other wet ingredients and mix until smooth, then add all other ingredients until well blended.
  3. Place paper cupcake/muffin liners (I prefer parchment paper ones, but any kind will do) into each well of 2 12-count muffin pans and evenly divide batter between each one.
  4. Bake for approximately 18 to 24 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.
  5. Let cool & enjoy! Refrigerate any leftovers for freshness. You can even break into bite size pieces and freeze for a dessert topping!
