Low Sugar Chocolate Protein Muffins ~ GF & DF

I’m always looking for new protein snacks to try.  Recently, I found this recipe on labrada.com, double chocolate? Heck yeah! But after trying the batter I had to amp it up a bit. It was pretty bland the first time around – it needed more chocolate! Here is the extra-chocolatey, modified version:Protein muffin2

1 tsp vanilla extract
1/8 tsp sea salt
6-8 drops of liquid stevia or sweetener to taste
1 Tbsp gluten-free chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 300F.  Add chickpeas to blender or food processor and pulse until creamy. Add remaining ingredients except chocolate chips and blend until combined.
