RECIPE
Makes 6 muffins

2 Eggs
6 Tablespoons Coconut Flour
4 Tablespoons Almond Flour
1 scoop of plain or vanilla protein powder (I like THIS one)
1/2 cup almond milk (or milk or milk substitute)
1/2 cup applesauce (OR 1 mashed banana – note that a banana will add banana flavor)
1 teaspoon Vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon Baking powder
Dash of Salt
4 Tablespoons of chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease 6 cups of a muffin tin.

In a medium-sized bowl, crack the eggs and mix them until broken up. Add in the rest of the ingredients except for the chocolate chips. Mix all ingredients until a thick batter forms. Mix in chocolate chips last.

Add batter to the muffin tin. Put muffin tin into the oven and bake for 20-25 minutes.

Let cool and serve!

<3 I Love mine heated up with some butter on top… yum!

NUTRITION FACTS

NOT INCLUDING PROTEIN POWDER!

To get these nutrition facts, I plugged all ingredients into Myfitnesspal.com, then divided it by 6 to get an individual muffin. I did NOT include the protein powder, since I do not know what kind you will be using, so this will come out different for everyone. Please add in 1/6 of your protein powder per muffin to get the true facts.

1 muffin, using applesauce, and without protein powder:

Calories: 140
Protein: 2g
Fat: 4g
Carbs: 6g
Fiber: 3.5g
Sugar: 7g

*Disclaimer: Please note that these are estimated measurements. I entered all ingredients into MyFitnessPal and divided out the serving size for easier use. If you have a nutritional requirement, I suggest that you may want to formulate your own nutrition facts based on your needs. Thanks!
