Gooey Chocolate Chip Muffins
6 large or 12 small
Everybody loves chocolate chip muffins. So even though they’re a decadent treat, we decided to include a GN version here, including a variety of ingredients designed to improve the overall nutritional profile of the classic muffin mix. Be forewarned, however. These muffins are still high in calories and in carbs. So you’ll want to make sure to earn them in the gym and eat them post exercise.
1/2 cup unsalted butter (room temperature)
4 whole omega 3 eggs
¼ cup coconut milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups whole-wheat flour
1/2 cup flax meal
6 scoops chocolate protein powder
1 tablespoon cocao powder
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon Splenda
½ cup chocolate chips
½ cup dried fruit
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Combine all ingredients together in a mixing bowl and stir with a wooden spoon until combined.
Lightly coat a nonstick muffin pan with spray and then fill each muffin almost to the top.
Place in the oven and bake 10 minutes or until the top is set.
Cool, portion and store in the freezer individually wrapped.
