Protein english muffin recipe (gluten-free, vegan, low sugar)

Protein chocolate single serving protein english muffin that can be made in the oven or microwave for a quick healthy treat. This recipe is gluten-free, egg-free, dairy-free and low in sugar.

  • Prep Time: 1 minute
  • Cook Time: 15 minutes
  • Total Time: 16 minutes


  • 2 tablespoons hemp protein powder or brown rice protein
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons arrowroot starch
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons cocoa or carob powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons water*
  • 1/2 tablespoon coconut oil, liquid
  • add a few drops stevia if you desire some sweetness


  1. In a bowl or glass measuring cup (is what we used), place all your dry ingredients (protein powder, arrowroot starch, cocoa, baking soda) into the glass dish. And mix.
  2. Add in your apple cider vinegar and water.
  3. End with adding in your coconut oil. Continue to stir it all together to form a wet, paste looking batter.
  4. You can cook in the microwave (we did and used the same glass measuring cup to do it in) for 1 minute and 15 seconds, or you can pour batter into a muffin pan (lightly oiled) into 400 degree oven for about 10-12 minutes.
  5. Let cool before removing from pan. Then carefully remove from pan and slice in half. Can eat as is with favorite topping or can toast it up. We toasted ours and felt it tasted even better toasted.


  • Serving Size: serves 1

A quick healthy snack full of protein and low in sugar.

You left out the measurement for the cocoa powder… 1 1/2 tsp or tbsp?

purelytwins March 23, 2013 - 8:32 am

oopps sorry, we will fix that – should be 1 1/2 tablespoons.

I’ve tried the english muffin twice, and it may not look as pretty as yours, but it still tastes yummay!
Thanks for the video!

purelytwins March 23, 2013 - 8:33 am

yay 🙂 ours are not always that pretty either, but yes still tasty!

zosia March 22, 2013 - 6:35 pm

if i wanted to make this savoury…what could i replace the cocoa/carob with? more protein powder?

purelytwins March 23, 2013 - 8:35 am

we would just follow our original english muffin recipe for more savory

I love that you made a chocolate version! I’m on a serious carob kick lately – I love the faint coffee taste.

purelytwins March 23, 2013 - 8:36 am

us too!! we love carob!!!

I don’t have arrowroot can, do you think potato starch would work?

purelytwins March 23, 2013 - 11:54 am

yes potato starch should work 🙂

Ashley March 23, 2013 - 4:03 pm

I was wondering if you use unflavored hemp protein powder or no? All I have is plain. Thanks

purelytwins March 23, 2013 - 6:59 pm

Ashely yes we use plain hemp protein

Emma March 23, 2013 - 4:45 pm

So pleased to see a choc version! I don’t have plain protein powder so haven’t been able to make the original but I could make this one with what I’ve got and maybe just cut the cocoa powder a bit?

Deanna@healthyleanfit March 24, 2013 - 9:12 am

Love that you’ve done 2 versions of this!

Ladies…bless you, these muffins are ridiculously delicious! With Celiac disease, (good) english muffins are one of the main things that I miss. AMAZING with avocado 😉
