Ingredients

  • 2 cups rolled oats divided
  • 1 cup Whey chocolate protein powder*
  • 1 cup mashed banana about 2 large bananas
  • 2 eggs or 2 flax eggs
  • 1 cup almond milk
  • 1/3 cup cacao powder
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/3 cup chocolate chips**

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350F
  2. Line a muffin pan with 12 muffin liners (or grease it).
  3. Turn 1 cup rolled oats into a fine flour using a food processor (about 1 minute).
  4. Pour your newly made oatmeal flour into a large mixing bowl and add the rest of the ingredients. Stir well.
  5. Divide the batter equally among the 10 to 12 muffin tins. (Nutrition information was calculated for 10 muffins)

  6. Bake for 18-20 minutes. Remove from oven when a toothpick inserted in the center of a muffin comes out clean.
  7. Remove the muffins from the muffin pan and place them on a cooling rack for a few hours.

Recipe Notes

* Use plant-based protein powder for the vegan version. When doing so, reduce the amount of protein powder to 1/2 cup and the total amount of rolled oats to 1 1/2 cup. You will then process 1/2 cup rolled oats instead of 1 cup. This step is crucial as plant-based protein powder absorbs much more moisture than whey. Please note that very type of protein powder will behave differently. Your muffin batter should have the consistency of a pudding, so if you feel it is too dry, don't hesitate to adjust it using some almond milk until desired consistency.
* Use chocolate chips according to your personal diet.
