Almond Butter Oatmeal Protein Muffins with Dark Chocolate Chips

I need to switch up my breakfast routine so I came up with almond butter protein muffins. I recently started a new job and things get really hectic with my work day bright and early. I get into work right after my morning workouts. A lot of times, meetings pop up on my calendar within thirty minutes of my usual arrival time. I need a convenient breakfast I can scarf down quickly that is also high in protein to help support my post-workout state. These muffins help accomplish those needs. Worst case scenario, I can grab a few muffins and eat them on my drive from the gym into work each morning.

I picked up the Almond Butter and protein from Trader Joe’s. I love to grab products like these from Trader Joe’s because their everyday prices are much lower than most health food stores.

I am not a huge fan of chocolate, but I do enjoy DARK chocolate. I used dark chocolate chips. Dark chocolate has many health benefits. I suffer from migraines from time to time. There is evidence dark chocolate can help alleviate migraines. Dark chocolate has a higher percentage of cocoa powder than milk or white chocolate, thus dark chocolate also has more caffeine. Caffeine can help restrict blood flow to the head and help relieve pressure from migraines and other headaches.

Dark chocolate has also been proven to help lower blood pressure, improve heart health, and is rich in antioxidants.

I love how these turned out! I love the texture. It can be difficult to find the perfect combination of ingredients to use while baking with protein powder.

Flavor wise these are good and I love the idea of healthy baking. It was my first time using protein powders, but mine came out really dry. Next time I may add more milk and perhaps a 2nd egg.

I love how delicately sweet these muffing didn’t are and how much texture the oats add to then! I took out the chocolate chips to remove the extra sugar and I think it’s a perfect snack!

Can oat bran be used in place of the rolled oats?

I haven't tried this recipe with oat bran. I would imagine that you can substitute.

It's so nice to have extra protein in a muffin or cookie so you don't have to think about ti. Love your muffins and the extra chocolate.
