Chocolate Protein Muffins
2 cups oats
1 cup chocolate protein powder (I use Vega)
8 oz unsweetened applesauce
1 cup coconut milk (I use Califia toasted coconut)
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/3 cup cacao powder
1/4 cup swerve baking blend
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/3 cup stevia sweetened chocolate chips (Lily's or Russell Stovers)
Preheat oven to 350F
Line a muffin pan with 12 muffin liners (or grease it).
Turn 1 cup oats into a fine flour using a food processor or blender (about 1 minute).
Pour your newly made oatmeal flour into a large mixing bowl and add the rest of the ingredients. Stir well.
Divide the batter equally among the 12 muffin tins.
Bake for 18-20 minutes. Remove from oven when a toothpick inserted in the center of a muffin comes out clean.
Remove the muffins from the muffin pan after they cool in the pan.
