Gluten Free Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Muffins

I like to consider myself a healthy cook, but this was a bit out of my reach.  Some of the ingredients listed I've never heard of.  Well, I completely trust my friend Lisa and her knowledge on health and taste, so I ventured out into a different world and purchased Peanut Butter Powder (???) and Coconut Flour from Whole Foods.  I do, however, have chocolate whey protein on hand since my hubs always makes protein shakes. 

What caught my eye for this recipe are both the convenience of grabbing a muffin to-go, and the idea of the perfect pre-workout staple.  I have to eat before I workout in the morning, but carbs won't hold me over, and making a whole egg and toast breakfast just isn't going to happen.  (Plus that just wouldn't sit right during a heavy cardio session). These are fantastic, totally healthy, and very useful! 

Note* I couldn't get my muffins to rise too well (I'm a horrible baker) and the recipe doesn't seem to make too many, so I doubled it and got 18 scrumptious snacks.

Here is the link to the recipe from my dear friend Lisa's blog,
