Flourless Chocolate Creation

Oh boy did I have the itch to create something today. As always, I know that my recipe creations are either a hit or just kinda blah. Today's was oh so good! James actually gave me a kiss after he tasted it. I guess thats his seal of approval. Ha! But this creation is flourless, has a good source of protein, dairy free (besides egg) and of course GLUTEN FREE. It is a must try! Perfect for desert (which we just had) or for a quick breaky!

Chocolate Orange Banana Muffins (with protein)
Makes 6 Muffins

mix:
3 tbsp cocoa
1 serving (2 scoops) chocolate fudge whey protein
3 eggs
1/2 tsp cream of tartar
1 stevia extract

whip all these ingredients together until smooth (beater works best). Then fill 2/3 cup of a coated muffin pan with batter.

filling:
1 small banana (mashed)
1 tbsp orange jam
1 tbsp agave nectar
1 tbsp sun nut butter or almond butter
Mix all together until you get a chunky consistency (due to the banana)

Then spoon filling into the muffins pans until mix rises 3/4 way. You will see the filling on top. Bake at 350F for 16-18 minutes or until they rise. Let them sit in oven (on off) for an extra 10 minutes to cool.

Amazing! I think I'll make them when my little brohter comes out to vists because he's gluten-free! Thanks!

Holy cow those look amazing!! Do you fill it up with batter, then filling, then batter again??

Charisa said...

Those look amazing! Will definitely have to try :)

James and Lindsay Cotter said...

April,

I didn't refill the muffins with the batter after the filling only because I didn't have enough. The filling kinda just sunk in and then the whole batter rose to about 3/4 the way so it worked perfectly!

Matt said...

Any recommendations for someone who cant use Whey? Looks like a great recipe!

James and Lindsay Cotter said...

Matt,

you can use Hemp protein, soy protein, egg white protein ,etc. in the recipe. Just try to find a chocolate flavored one. Jay Robb makes a good egg white chocolate protein.

CHeers,

Primal Austin Athletes....awesome bloggie!

Matt said...

Thanks for the tips! I ordered some of that protein, got brown rice and egg white in Chocolate, looking forward to making the recipe!

James and Lindsay Cotter said...

Barbara,

Yes, gotta love primal! Glad you found us.

Matt,

Keep me posted on how they turn out. I wouldn't mind trying the brown rice protein either.
