Single serving protein muffin recipe.
Gluten-free low sugar protein muffin recipe that serves one.
she is enjoying our new love — a sugar free protein packed chocolate muffin.
we have been increasing our intensity of our workouts, with some days doing a mini second workout. therefore, we have been increasing our protein. well our calories in general. as we gain more muscle our appetite goes through the roof.
so we needed something that really kept us full and satisfied. and this individual muffin recipe was born! it is one giant muffin!
it is crazy to admit that we are eating a lot more “protein” than we did a few years ago.
sometimes we cannot believe we eat as much protein powder as we have been lately. we try to have two servings of protein powder in one day.
and our bodies seem to be somewhat okay with it all! in the past we struggled with eating protein powders in terms of poor digestion…gas, constipation. but for some reason we are doing okay. maybe it is everything else we are doing to help our digestion. or maybe our stomachs are getting strong again. we can only hope. not everyday our stomach acts perfect.
anyways, in the past we never understood why people obsessed over protein powder so much. we never understood why they put protein powder in everything.
but now we do!! when you are trying not to eat too much sugar, nuts, grains, etc. protein and vegetables are really all you got left. and the protein powders have been making our new ‘diet’ changes work for us at the moment.
we present you today our individual protein muffins as we like to call them. they are similar to some of our other mini cakes – walnut carob cakes and hazelnut cocoa cakes, (just using protein powder instead of nuts)Print

we seriously loved this muffin. it kept us full for HOURS. seriously a rich, nutrient dense protein packed muffin recipe.
we are in love. we have made this about every other day it feels like. now you can say we are a little obsessed with putting protein powders into things, like we mention so many others already do. we are a little late to the game.
have a great Tuesday!
