Breakfast is the most IMPORTANT meal of the day!
No doubt this is something you’ve heard your entire life, and it’s not untrue!
Your breakfast is what gets your metabolism up and running after a long night of sleep, and you want to make sure you’re choosing something healthy and packed full of nutrients to help things start moving!
You gotta love chocolate muffins that deliver a dose of protein to help keep you full and energized, and this recipe will do just that!
Enjoy one for breakfast with eggs or yogurt or have it on its own as a power-you-up snack.
- 1½ cups whole wheat-white flour (or ¾ cup whole grain plus ¾ cup all purpose flour)
- 6 tablespoons cocoa powder
- 2 scoops (½ cup) chocolate Gen One Labs ISO Gen 100% Whey Isolate
- ½ cup sugar
- ¼ cup chia seeds
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1½ teaspoons baking soda
- 1 whole egg, lightly beaten
- 4 egg whites, lightly beaten
- 1 cup skim milk
- 1½ cups low-fat vanilla Greek yogurt
- 1 tablespoon coconut oil (may substitute with vegetable oil)
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 400˚. Liberally coat two standard muffin tins with nonstick oil spray and set aside. (Note: You can use silicone muffin liners or pour batter directly into muffin tins misted with nonstick oil spray; paper liners may stick to muffins.)
In a large mixing bowl, combine all dry ingredients (with the exception of chips).
In a small mixing bowl, combine all wet ingredients.
Create a well in the center of the dry ingredients. Pour the wet ingredients into the well and begin to mix. Add the chocolate chips right before the mixture is fully combined. Take care not to overmix.
Pour batter evenly among 20 muffin cups and bake for approximately 20 minutes.
