The most amazing Keto Chocolate Protein Muffins made with coconut flour and sweetened with protein powder. With 2.7g net carbs, these easy chocolate protein powder muffins are the perfect low carb high protein muffin recipe!

I feel like I say this every time, but another SUCH a perfectly soft and moist muffin right here!

After loving the vanilla coconut flour protein muffins I made a few weeks ago, I had to create a chocolate version too. Quite a small adaptation so just as easy.

Another beautiful nutrition label here as well with more protein than total carbs; And with most of those being fiber, the net carbs on these chocolate muffins are, wait for it, 2.7g only!

Ohhhh! Now I’m considering making a savory version of coconut flour muffins and having them for a low carb dinner.

Ingredients for Keto Chocolate Protein Muffins

These coconut flour chocolate protein powder muffins are made with a few clean and healthy ingredients, making them the ideal sugar free, gluten free, low carb, keto and high protein muffins!

  • Coconut flour
  • Chocolate Protein Powder – I use quest nutrition chocolate for these protein powder muffins for a sugar free and keto protein muffin recipe since (since it’s sweetened with stevia).
  • Unsweetened Cocoa Powder or Cacao Powder
  • Almond Milk to add moisture to the muffins – the protein powder and coconut flour both absorb a lot.
  • You can use normal milk, but almond milk gives a dairy free recipe.
  • A bit of Creamy Peanut Butter
  • Eggs – a lot of these since this is a coconut flour baked good.
  • Baking Powder

Are Muffins High in Carbs?

Most regular store bought muffins are high in carbs because they use all purpose flour, or tor other regular flour alternatives. Since these keto protein muffins are made with coconut flour, they have a total of 8.1g carbs, of which 5.4g is fiber – so all you have is 2.7g of net carbs!

So if you’re ever looking for low carb muffin recipes with protein powder, you need to try this ketp chocolate protein muffin!
