Unbelievably soft and fluffy Coconut Flour Protein Muffins sweetened with protein powder and actually healthy! These coconut flour protein powder muffins are keto, low carb, gluten free and sugar free – the perfect recipe for breakfast or dessert.

Okay I was BEYOND impressed with how good these coconut flour muffins were.

Not dry or crumbly like a lot of coconut flour recipes, but actually soft and moist and fluffy.

That nutrition label! SO low in carb, high in protein and not too high in fat either; I actually ate 2 of these at a time!

Last and probably the most impressive part? Just 6 ingredients! That literally blew my mind.

I’m quite at a loss of words here.

Ingredients for Healthy Coconut Flour Protein Muffins

These coconut flour protein powder muffins are actually made with just 6 healthy ingredients, and have no sugar either – perfect gluten free, low carb, keto and high protein muffins!

  • Coconut flour
  • Vanilla Protein Powder – I use quest nutrition vanilla for these protein powder muffins for a sugar free and keto protein muffin recipe since (since it’s sweetened with stevia).
  • Almond Milk to add moisture to the muffins – the protein powder and coconut flour both absorb a lot.
  • Almond milk makes this recipe dairy free too. You can use normal milk if non dairy isn’t a restriction
  • A bit of Melted Coconut Oil
  • An Egg
  • Baking Powder

I also like to add some dried nuts, seeds, fruit or chocolate chips to protein coconut flour muffins.

For the chocolate chips, I recommend the sugar free ones from Lakanto (you get a discount with the code HAYLSKITCHEN)

How to make Coconut Flour Protein Powder Muffins

These easy protein muffins are actually really simple to make, especially because you don’t need to worry about over-mixing the batter.

  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F and line 8 cups of a muffin tin with cupcake lines. Lightly spray the insides with oil spray (so the muffins come off easily)
  2. You can also use a non-stick pan.
  3. Whisk the eggs, milk and peanut butter in a large bowl.
  4. Add the dry coconut flour, vanilla protein powder and baking powder and whisk. You should have a thick muffin batter.
  5. Divide the mix among the muffin cups, filling them about ¾ way to the top.
  6. Optionally, top with dried nuts/seeds or sugar free chocolate chips.
  7. Bake the muffins for about 23 minutes until a tester inserted into the center comes out dry.

How to store Coconut Flour Whey Protein Muffins

Store these coconut flour protein muffins on the countertop, in the fridge or the freezer for an healthy keto breakfast or dessert.

Kep the whey protein muffins in an airtight container on the countertop for up to 3 days or fridge for 6 days.

To freeze, wrap individual protein powder coconut flour muffins in plastic wrap, place in a freezer-safe zipper bag, and freeze up to 3 months. Leave them on the countertop or place them in the fridge overnight to thaw. I would not recommend using the microwave.

    It sounds awesome for my husband and his keto diet. But not so for my dairy allergy granddaughter. Part of dairy allergy is "whey" ! Is there another substitute for the whey protein powder??

      Hi Kim!

      These muffins really were beautiful! I haven't tried a plant based protein myself, but maybe you could give one of those a try? I put some notes on my website about this. Do take a look! I'd also love it if you left a comment on there :)
