Hey there guys! Everyone loves chocolate, and today I’ve got a quick and easy chocolate muffin recipe that is FLOURLESS, REFINED SUGAR FREE and VERY TASTY.
I tried to pack as much protein into these as I could, without using protein powder, because I know sometimes I don’t have access to it and I wanted to make sure that both you and I could make these with minimal ingredients. So I turned to one of my favourite, super versatile ingredients- chickpeas! They’re full of protein and give the density to these muffins that is otherwise missing because of the lack of flour. I promise that you can’t taste them in there at all- much like in my Healthy Edible Cookie Dough. All you get is an amazing, chocolate-y flavour in a cute and fluffy mini muffin.
The other simple ingredients in this tasty snack include cocoa powder, egg, baking powder, peanut butter (yum), vanilla and banana. Everything gets tossed into the blender and combined until a smooth batter forms. I greased up my mini muffin pans with a bit of coconut oil, filled them up, and baked for about 15-20 minutes. So these muffins are not only healthy, but quick and easy to make too!
I love this recipe because it’s soooooo delicious and makes the perfect snack, quick breakfast, or healthy dessert. The chickpeas worked perfectly as a kind of flour substitute- I definitely want to play around with that some more! Don’t be scared away by them though- they give a great texture but have no effect on the taste.
Hope you enjoy this delicious recipe!
