LOW CARB CHOCOLATE MOCHA FLAXMEAL MUFFIN
2 eggs, beaten
4 teaspoons baking powder
1 cup ground flaxmeal
6 tablespoons whey based vanilla protein powder
4 tablespoons oil
1 cup granular Splenda
2 tsp. vanilla
1 1/4 cup strong brewed coffee--EDITED IN THAT I USE DECAF
6 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 cup unsalted sunflower seeds (optional)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Spray with non-stick cooking spray a 12 cup non-stick muffin tin OR you can also use paper cupcake/muffin liners
Beat eggs well with hand whisk.
Add remaining ingredients one at a time, whisking well after adding each.
Divide evenly between the 12 muffin cups. Bake about 14-16 minutes until toothpick inserted comes out clean. Cool 5 minutes in muffin tin on wire rack. If not using paper liners, loosen around each muffin with a plastic knife and then remove muffins onto wire rack.
These freeze really well and can be rewarmed in seconds in the microwave.
Entire recipe makes 12
