Hey guys! I’m SO excited to share this Double Chocolate Muffin recipe with you because not only is it super decadent, but also simple and really filling.

I’m all about grab-and-go snacks, and muffins are seriously THE BEST. I can make these for Sam (because he loves chocolate) so fast so that he can have something when we’re on the run (which is always tbh).

Anyway, these Double Chocolate Muffins will be your new favorite go-to, just wait!

If you love a good chocolate + PB combo, be sure to smear your muffins with some drippy peanut butter for an even more filling snack.

Super chocolatey

I call this recipe a one-bowl-wonder since everything goes into one vessel, gets a stir and voila!

Technically, this is a triple chocolate recipe because in addition to the chocolate protein powder, I use cocoa powder and sugar-free chocolate chips.

I used my Sculpt & Debloat Protein Powder for a rich chocolate flavor and boost of protein that also acts like a replacement for some of the flour used in traditional muffin recipes.

To keep these protein muffins gluten-free, I used cashew butter as the base (no need for any flour at all!).

  • Heat oven to 350°F. Whisk the cashew butter, eggs and oil together.
  • Add the protein powder, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt and stir to form a thick batter. Fold in chocolate chips, if using.
  • Spoon batter into 8 silicone muffin cups and bake for 14-15 minutes. If you like a gooey center, slightly under-bake.

    Could you use peanut or almond butter instead of cashew butter? I can’t find cashew butter.

    You said you’d be using monk sugar in this recipe, but you forgot to add how much to use in the recipe.

      The recipe is correct as written! The only monkfruit sweetener is in the protein powder 🙂
