Chocolate Peppermint Protein Muffins Recipe- 21 Day Fix Approved!

1 c Oat Flour (just grind your quick oats until it becomes a flour in your blender. It does not need to be really fine)
1/2 Cup Coconut Flour
1  c unsweetened cocoa powder
2 scoops chocolate whey protein 
21 Day Fix Approved
1 ½ tsp baking soda
1 ½ tsp baking powder
¼ tsp salt
2 eggs, lightly beaten
¾ cip plain nonfat Greek yogurt
3/4  cup almond milk
1 ½ tbsp vanilla extract
1 tsp peppermint extract
1/4 c pure maple syrup (grade b)
2 tsp Truvia
¼ c peppermint baking chips
Mini chocolate chips to top muffins

-Preheat the oven to 425°F, and coat 12 muffin cups with nonstick cooking spray.
-In a medium bowl, whisk together the  oat flour, coconut flour, coaco, chocolate whey, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
-In a separate bowl, whisk together the eggs, yogurt, milk, vanilla, and peppermint extract.
-Stir in the maple syrup and Truvia. Add in the flour mixture, stirring just until incorporated.
-Gently fold in the peppermint baking chips.
-Divide the batter between the prepared muffin cups. Sprinkle a little chocolate chips on top of each muffin.  Bake at 425°F for 6 minutes. Without opening the oven door, reduce the heat to 325°F and bake for another 11-13 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Cool in the pan for 10 minutes before turning out onto a wire rack.

Notes: If you can’t find peppermint baking chips, chop up peppermint Andes mints or peppermint bark instead.

If you are on the fix, one muffin is one red, one yellow.
