Indulgent vanilla-choc-chip muffins enriched with Pea Protein


I love to bake, most of the time I go super healthy, sugar free and lower carb. However sometimes I cook for the soul and this recipe is definitely for one of those times.

These muffins are definitely a some-times food and you could certainly play around with the recipe increasing the protein powder and reducing the flour for a better balance. However this recipe as it stands offers a healthy yet indulgent light and fluffy muffin that is to die for.... you ready?

Here goes....

Ingredients:

  • A small pinch of salt

  • 1/3 of a cup of coconut sugar

  • Half a cup of organic granulated stevia

  • 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda

  • 1 cup of millet flour

  • 1 cup of water

  • 1 organic egg

  • 1tbsp apple cider vinegar

  • 1/3 cup of vanilla pea protein

  • 5tbsp liquid coconut or macadamia oil

  • 1tsp xantham gum

  • 2tbsp chopped chocolate chunks (here I used chunks of my own homemade vegan chocolate, however you could use any of your favourite chocolate)

Directions:

  • Preheat the oven to 180degrees

  • Mix all dry ingredients (not chocolate chunks) together in a bowl until evenly combined.

  • Mix all wet ingredients together in a separate bowl until evenly combined.

  • Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and mix gently until a smooth batter forms. Add chocolate chunks here and mix until evenly spaced.

  • Bake in the oven for 20-30 minutes, checking occasionally. Muffins are cooked when you can poke with a toothpick all the way to the bottom and remove clean.

  • Enjoy with a cup of your favourite tea!
