Cacao protein muffins

These protein muffins with cocoa are very healthy and easy to make breakfast, ideal for those days when you need a light breakfast with extra protein.

Healthy and delicious

Besides being very healthy, these muffins are also delicious and rich in cacao. So they are also ideal as a healthy snack, especially for those days when we want something a little sweeter and sweeter.

If you want to give it a different touch, try them with carob flour instead of cocoa powder.

Phase 2 Serves: 2 - 6 Prep Time: Cooking Time:


  • 6 egg whites
  • 4 tablespoons of 100% pure and raw cacao
  • 6 tablespoons birch xylitol or stevia
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar or lemon juice (optional)


  1. Preheat the oven to 260 ºF (130ºC).
  2. In a large bowl, add 6 egg whites and ½ teaspoon cream of tartar or lemon juice. And beat the whites until stiff peaks form.
  3. Keep beating until the whites have increased in volume and look like whipped cream. This operation may require several minutes, to speed it up I recommend using the cold egg whites, fresh out of the fridge, and an electric whisker.
  4. Add the birch xylitol or another sweetener of your choice little by little and continue beating until completely incorporated. Add also the cacao powder and the cinnamon, and mix it well.
  5. Fill your muffin mold with the mixture, using two spoons. I recommend using a silicone mold so that the muffins don’t stick so much.
  6. Bake your muffins for about 40 minutes.
  7. After 40 minutes, leave the oven door ajar until cool. Take them out of the oven once cool.
