Vegan Chocolate Chip Protein Muffins Recipe Card




Chewy Vegan Chocolate Chip Protein Muffins



  • ⅓ cup MaryRuth’s Organic Protein Powder
  • ½ cup Coconut Flour
  • ½ cup Coconut Sugar (or maple syrup or monk fruit)
  • 2 tsp Baking Powder
  • ⅓ cup Chocolate Chips
  • ¼ cup Smooth Almond Butter (or cashew or peanut butter)
  • 1 cup Canned Coconut Milk
  • 2 tbsp Coconut Oil, melted and slightly cooled
  • 1 tbsp Vanilla Extract
  • 2 Flax Seed Eggs (or cage free/free range eggs)



  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Line a regular sized muffin pan (12 cup) or a mini cup muffin pan (24 cup) with liners.
  3. Add almond butter, coconut oil, coconut sugar, and vanilla extract to a bowl and, with a hand mixer, on medium speed, mix until well combined.
  4. Slowly add in flax eggs (or eggs) one at a time; beat again for one minute until batter is smooth.
  5. Pour in coconut milk and mix on low speed until combined.
  6. In a small bowl, whisk together coconut flour, baking powder, and MaryRuth’s Plant-Based Protein Powder.
  7. Slowly add dry ingredients to wet ingredients and mix on low speed until batter is smooth. Fold in chocolate chips with a spoon.
  8. Use a tablespoon or cookie scoop to disperse batter evenly into cupcake liners.
  9. Bake for 17 minutes for mini muffins or 20 minutes for regular sized muffins. Test with a toothpick.
  10. When the toothpick comes out clean, they’re done! Cool for 5 minutes in the pan, then transfer to a wire rack.


Store at room temperature for 3 days, in the refrigerator for 5 days, or in the freezer for 1 month and re-heat when hungry!
