Chocolate Coffee Protein Muffins for the WIN! These are SO good! In order to get the perfect recipe for you guys, I actually made them about fives times… which means I ate five batches. And guess what? I am not even sick of them!
These Chocolate Coffee Protein Muffins are the perfect compliment to breakfast, a mid-day snack, or dessert. They’re a tad sweet from the maple syrup and banana. I’m not even going to get into what protein power you should use… I typically put collagen peptides in my coffee every morning but past that I don’t typically consume more protein in the form of powder on a daily basis.
I do have some old whey chocolate protein powder, which is what I used in this recipe. This recipe would still work with one of the paleo protein powders – feel free to use what suits you! I will also note that protein powder, when used in baking, can sometimes create a really dry consistency but the banana really helps to combat this especially when stored in an air tight container.
Anyways, way too much discussion about protein and protein powders – lets get to enjoying a Chocolate Coffee Protein Muffin!
