Recipe Notes

* I used a gluten-free / vegan option for the chocolate chips. If you can't find any at your local grocery store, Amazon offers some very good products

** You may use plant-based protein powder for a vegan version but take note that this type of protein powder soaks more moisture so you should reduce the amount of coconut flour to 1/4 cup and gradually add some almond milk until the mixture has the consistency of muffin batter (similar to pudding).
