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
🔸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
- Preheat oven to 350F.
- 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.
- 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.
- Bake for approximately 18 to 24 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.
- Let cool & enjoy! Refrigerate any leftovers for freshness. You can even break into bite size pieces and freeze for a dessert topping!
