These Chocolate Muffins are school safe, flourless and super easy to make.  Nobody knew it was made with black beans.

Chocolate Protein Muffins Flourless

These are school safe, super moist and delicious.  My first batch made 15 large muffins, the second made 12 because I made them even bigger.  Experiment with size.


  • 1-396ml or 15oz can unsalted black beans, drained and rinsed *get BPA free if using canned
  • 5 eggs
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 4 tbsp coconut oil *liquid form or melted over the stove top
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup *I used a little less than this – less is more
  • 1/4 cup chocolate protein powder *optional make sure it’s chemical free, this is what to look for in a Protein Powder
  • 2 tbsp cacao powder

How to Make:

  • Preheat the oven to 350 F.
  • Spray a muffin tin with cooking oil *I use silicone muffin cups so you don’t need to oil
  • Place all ingredients in the blender or food processor and run until smooth *use a spatula to get all that juicy batter out
  • Pour into the muffin tins evenly (batter will be thin)
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the center of the muffin comes out clean
  • Let cool 5 minutes and then remove to a cooling rack
