Single Serving Protein Chocolate Chip Muffin
Prep time:

Total time: 
Yield: 1 giant muffin
  • 1 scoop vanilla protein powder*
  • 2 tablespoons erythritol
  • 1 tablespoon coconut flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ⅛ teaspoon nutmeg
  • pinch salt
  • ¼ cup applesauce
  • 1 egg whites (or 1 egg's worth of egg replacer)
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 square dark chocolate, chopped
  1. Grease a large microwave-safe mug and set aside. (I love coconut oil spray.)
  2. In a medium-sized bowl, combine protein powder, erythritol, coconut flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt and mix until uniform.
  3. Add the applesauce, egg whites, and vanilla extract and stir until completely combined. Stir in the chopped dark chocolate.
  4. Add the batter to the prepared mug. Microwave on high for one minute and check to see if it’s done. Cooking times will vary a lot depending on the power of your microwave and the shape of the mug you used, but after you make this for the first time you’ll get a feel for how long it takes. When doing the toothpick test on this, I used to wait until the toothpick came out clean, but the muffin was usually overcooked by the time that happened. Now what I do is cut out a small piece with a knife and taste to see if it’s done. Because I never say no to taste testing. If your muffin needs more cooking after that minute, cook in 15 second intervals until it’s done. Devour.
