2 scoops vanilla protein powder 64-67 grams
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 cup almond flour
1/2 cup peanut butter or any nut or seed butter
1 cup unsweetened applesauce
1/2 cup chocolate chips optional

Almond flour– Blanched almond flour, not almond meal. Using the blanched variety ensures the muffins have a lovely light and tender crumb.
Baking powder– Just a pinch to help the muffins rise (as much as they can do) and give the muffins some stability.
Protein powder– Brown rice protein powder, casein protein powder, or a whey protein powder blend. Do NOT use a strict whey protein powder or else your muffins will turn into hockey pucks.
Peanut butter OR alternative– Smooth and creamy peanut butter, with no added sugar
Unsweetened applesauce– Adds some moisture to the muffins, without needing any oil or butter.
Chocolate chips– A must for any good muffin. Use sugar free chocolate chips to keep these muffins completely sugar free.


1. Preheat the oven to 350F. Line a muffin tin with 8 muffin liners and set aside.

2. In a large mixing bowl, add your dry ingredients and mix well. Add your peanut butter and unsweetened applesauce and mix until fully combined. Fold through your chocolate chips.

3. Divide the batter amongst the muffin liners and bake for 10-12 minutes, or until a skewer comes out mostly clean.

4. Remove the muffins from the oven and allow them to cool for 5 minutes, before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
