Flourless Chocolate Protein Muffins

Who ever said a muffin can't be good for you? These Chocolate Muffins are flourless, protein packed, zero sugar, & filled with all the goodness of flax & chia seeds. Oh...and they're charmingly delicious! That's right, you CAN have your muffin & eat it too!! Happy Healthy Eating! 

1 3/4 cups oats
1 egg + 2 egg whites
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt (any plain yogurt will work)
1 1/2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
2 scoops chocolate protein
2 tbsp raw chia seeds
1/4 cup flax seeds 
1 cup hot water
1/2 cup sugar substitute (you can add more if you want them sweeter)
1-2 tbsp dark chocolate mini-chips (just enough to sprinkle a few on top of each muffin)
Pour all ingredients except chocolate chips in a blender or food processor. Blend until the oats are ground and mixture is smooth. It will be thick and you will need to help it along by scraping down sides. It took me a few minutes of blending to mix it well. Pour mixture into prepared muffin tins (close to full) & bake 8 minutes @ 350 degrees, remove from oven and sprinkle mini chocolate chips onto each muffin. Return to oven and bake an additional 3-5 minutes. Cool in tins before removing. Once chilled store in airtight container in refrigerator. Yield: 12 muffins  ENJOY!!!
