Protein muffins are one of the best little helpers you can have on hand.

Make your protein muffins with the right ingredients and the right recipe and they can be nutritious as well as tasting awesome.

What’s so great about these KOJA Chocolate Protein Muffins?

KOJA Chocolate Protein Muffins are light, fluffy, chocolatey muffins that take barely any time to prepare. They are also packed with nutrients to help keep you full between meals, stabilise blood sugar and give you a natural energy boost.

Protein Muffins are also packed with protein, fibre, magnesium and potassium making them an ideal post-workout snack for muscle recovery and brain fuel or make a nice treat for afternoon tea.

Tips for your Chocolate Protein Muffins:

  1. Allow your chocolate protein muffins to cool quite a bit before serving.  Cooling allows the ingredients to pull together which means they’ll keep their shape better.
  2. If you won’t use all the protein muffins within 24 hours, freeze individually by storing in small ziplock plastic bags.
  3. If you have young children who wouldn’t eat a full sized protein muffin, make them into mini muffins for a fun and healthy snack. Simply spoon the mixture into a lined mini muffin tray and bake for approx. 10-12 minutes.
  4. If you didn’t freeze your protein muffins and they are now a little dry or stale, slice them in half and pop them in the toaster for 30 seconds.  Then add a little nut butter or vegan cream cheese.
  5. You could also use toasted crumbled protein muffins as a tasty topper for natural yoghurt with a drizzle of rice malt syrup.  Who needs ice cream when you can have this?

What’s the story behind KOJA?
