Almond Joy Protein Muffins

Original Recipe


The filling ingredients are coated in cocoa powder before being added to the mixture to promote an even distribution of filling in the final product. You can skip this step and add the filling ingredients to the batter as is, but you may find that they sink to the bottom of the muffin when added this way.

You can make this recipe vegan by using Kodiak Cakes Plant-Based Flapjack and Waffle Mix [1] and substituting the chicken egg for a flax egg or another egg substitute.

Almond Joy Protein Muffins Recipe


  1. 1/4 cup sliced almonds
    1/4 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
