When Chad tested these chocolate chip protein muffins a few weeks ago and said they’d be great with some frosting on top I nearly decked him. Let me be perfectly clear, these aren’t cupcakes! So if that’s what you’re looking for, you’ve come to the wrong place. Once I explained to Chad they were a breakfast muffin he got the clue and declared them to be pretty great. Smart man he is. We just might meet our yearly quota! You know…
I’ve always loved baking, so these have been a lot of fun to create. And for once, I’ve kept the total recipe servings quite small! Each batch makes 6 muffins, which is perfect for 1 person for a few days. I was packing 2 per day for breakfast on the go or as a snack at work. If your kids eat any and everything that resembles treats like mine do, you better just plan to double it. If I let them, my kids will eat these as snacks too.
Have I mentioned the amazing macros for these muffins? Each one is 8.2g protein, 18.9g carbs, & 2.1g fat. Pretty amazing if I don’t say so myself! You can even find these in Myfitnesspal already! (Search Stay Fit Mom Chocolate Chip Protein Muffins)
If you plan to make these chocolate chip protein muffins, make sure to use parchment paper instead of any cupcake liners. Because they are low in fat, they will stick to most liners. I just cut up some parchment paper and fold them into the pan as best I can. I hold the liner in place and I scoop the batter in. It’s really simple, I promise.
Here’s a look at how easily they come out of the parchment paper liners. This post contains affiliate links. If you purchase something from these links, we could earn a small commission. This would be at no additional cost to you.
Once cooled store in an air tight container or ziplock bag. Like most muffins and doughnuts and things, these taste even better the next day! Super soft and extra moist! Or maybe I’m just a little crazy?
