Maria’s Vegan Almond & Chocolate Protein Muffins

Recipe by Maria AKA @mimismacros

These vegan-friendly muffins are easy to make and take less than 20 minutes to bake. They have a perfect crunchy top and a soft fluffy base – perfect with a cup of tea or coffee.

The muffins are dairy-free and naturally sweetened with maple syrup and dark chocolate chips, making them a great natural snack to add into a plant-based diet.

The chocolate flavour comes from the chocolate protein powder and the chocolate chips, which goes extremely well with the nutty taste of the almond or peanut butter (whichever you choose).

Made with 2 scoops of Vegan Protein Powder, each muffin provides a source of natural plant protein making it easy to increase your daily intake of this important macronutrient.

Enjoy these muffins still warm with a glass of almond milk or a warm brew, or you can store them in an air-tight container and they’ll last for a few days (if they last that long!).
