Healthy Chocolate Muffins

Eating healthy doesn't have to be boring! I love taking classic recipes, and turning them into a healthy, protein packed treat. If you like chocolate you’re going to love our healthy chocolate muffins! They’re sweetened with mashed banana and made with chocolate chips and cocoa powder to make them extra chocolatey and delicious. Make it with me!

These muffins are double chocolatey! They are made using cocoa powder and chocolate chips! I sweeten this recipe with bananas, maple syrup, and coconut sugar. You can also choose to add a scoop of your favorite protein powder to the muffin batter for an extra protein boost!

I like to bake these muffins straight in the tin. You are welcome to use muffin liners if you would like! Just make sure to grease the pan and the muffin tins if you choose. My favorite cooking spray is the Kirkland brand from Costco! 

Healthy Chocolate Muffins
Yields 12 muffins

2 eggs, large
1/2 cup maple syrup
3/4 cup almond milk, unsweetened
3 tablespoons coconut oil, melted
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 bananas, mashed
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1.5 cups white whole wheat flour
½ cup coconut sugar or sugar alternative
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 scoop protein powder (optional)
1/2 cup chocolate chips

First, preheat oven to 350ºF and prepare muffin tin.
To the stand mixer, add the eggs, maple syrup, almond milk, coconut oil, and vanilla. Mix well. 
Mash two bananas and add to the wet ingredients. 
Next, add the cocoa powder, whole wheat flour, coconut sugar, baking soda, salt, and optional protein powder into the mixing bowl.
Fold in the chocolate chips.
Fill each muffin about 3/4 of the way full. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until the center is fully cooked.
Let cool for 5 minutes and then remove from the muffin tin to continue cooling.
