Chocolate Protein Muffins with Spirulina

Add more goodness into your chocolate protein muffins

I’ve often heard that muffins are just glorified cupcakes. And while I totally agree in a lot of cases, not in my muffins! I am all about making muffins as nourishing and good for you as possible. We lower the sugar, naturally sweetened, and opt for better flour choices. If I can add something green in, I am game!

Chocolate Protein Muffins with Spirulina

What is spirulina?

The green comes from spirulina powder. Now, you can’t really see it because we add cocoa powder, but if that wasn’t added in, these muffins would have a beautiful blue/green hue.

Spirulina is an algae. Why include it in your diet? It has a high concentration of beta-carotene, an antioxidant that may help strengthen the immune system. So why not? I’ll add a scoop or two into my banana egg oatmeal pancakes and serve my kids tasty green pancakes.

Protein powder

Another way we added more goodness into these muffins was with Perfect Plant Protein Powder. Hemp seed, pumpkin seed and sacha inchi make up the protein powder. I love using ingredients from nature in my home, and I love that this protein powder is made with just 3 ingredients! Such an easy addition into muffins.

Double the chocolate

We made these muffins extra decadent by adding in mini chocolate chips. If you want to keep them less sweet and even more wholesome, omit the chocolate chips. But in my opinion, they are super delish baked in!

Best way to store muffins

I love storing my muffins in the fridge. These muffins taste especially delicious after a good chill in the fridge. The chocolate chips harden and give a nice bite and contrast to the soft muffin. They will keep for up to 1 week in the fridge. They can be frozen for up to 3 months.
