Chocolate Protein Muffins

What happens when you have an abundance of random flours and bits and pieces in your pantry? Well, I had a hankering for chocolate muffins, so I basically just ‘winged it’ to get them to a consistency that seemed like muffin batter. I call the result, “Clear out the Pantry” Chocolate Protein Muffins!

These Chocolate Protein Muffins are also gluten free, dairy free and refined sugar free!

Chocolate Protein Muffins

Serves ~10 Muffins
Time 30 min


  • 1/2 Cup natural hemp protein powder + 1/2 Cup cacao powder (or 1 Cup Organic Hemp Plus)
  • 1/4 C coconut flour
  • 1/4 C almond meal
  • 1/4 C tapioca flour
  • 1 t baking powder
  • 2 organic, free-range eggs whisked
  • 1 banana, mashed
  • 3 T macadamia oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 t green leaf stevia
  • 1 Cups water (I just added enough ot make a batter)
  • 1/2 Cup chopped cacao melts (or even more for a super decadent treat, I actually also chopped up a random choc-peanut snack bar that I had and put that in too)

Method (for both versions):

  1. Preheat oven to 180 degC
  2. Place dry ingredients into a bowl and combine.
  3. Add wet ingredients (except the water) and cacao melts and bring together using a spoon. Add water bit by bit until well combined into a batter type of consistency.
  4. Divide evenly between 10-12 greased or lined muffin trays (or mini muffins if you like).
  5. Bake for 20 minutes or until just cooked.
  6. Serve warm, and for something totally drool-worthy, with peanut butter!
  7. Will keep for 4-5 days and can be frozen.
