pan of protein muffins with chocolate chips

Step by step instructions

The process for making this protein muffin recipe is exactly the same as any other type of muffin recipe.

All you need to do is place the dry ingredients into one bowl and the wet ingredients into a second bowl. Then, you add the wet to the dry, stir, and bake!

Preheat your oven and add paper liners to 12 muffin tins (or use non-stick cooking spray).

Mix dry ingredients
In a large bowl, mix dry ingredients together, making sure to remove any flour clumps. Or, if you have a blender, you can simply toss everything in at once and blend!

NOTE: If you are using oats rather than oat flour, you will need to use a blender to grind them into a fine flour first. Then, add the protein powder, baking powder, baking soda, and salt and blend again.

Mix wet ingredients
Whisk the milk, egg, and vanilla extract together in a medium bowl until combined. In a separate bowl, mix together the nut butter and honey. Set aside.

Add dry to wet
Combine wet batter(s) to the dry batter.

Mixing the BATTER TIP: I  like to work in batches (as you see in the video above). Meaning, combine 1/3 of the dry batter and 1/3 of the wet batter into the bowl of nut butter/syrup. Mix, repeat until you’ve used up all the batters and a cake-like batter is formed.

Fold in chocolate chips.
