Greek Yogurt Collagen Chocolate Chip Muffins


Stop what you’re doing right this very second and GO MAKE THESE MUFFINS!! It took me three tries to get these puppies right and then they came out absolutely perfect so I want you to experience them right now!! The first batch sunk in the middle, the second batch was way too dry, then the third batch was pure gold. Golden, chocolate button, muffin top joy. And no, there is no dairy in this recipe. No need to get your panties in a bunch.

In case you haven’t heard me talk about it before, I’m OBSESSED with collagen. Obsessed. My girlfriend told me a while back to start taking it but I ignored her as long as possible. Until she told me it would help the collagen and elasticity of my skin. I will do anything for better skin. Stick collagen up my butt? If it means I won’t age, I’m totally down. Sadly, it doesn’t work like that. And don’t worry, I’m not telling you to shove collagen up your butt. You can just drink it instead.

I started taking collagen over a year ago and now I won’t go a day without it. My hair never use to grow. Ever. And it was pretty unhealthy. But once I started taking collagen, my hair started to grow and became incredibly shiny, my nails started to grow, and I swear that it’s helped my skin…along with slathering it in products and burning it off with lasers. It has been life changing. And now I tell everyone I know about it. If you’re not taking collagen at this point, DO IT!! DO IT NOW!!

If you’re still trying to figure out ways to get collagen into your diet, well I’m here to help.

  1. Put it in your coffee. That’s what I do every morning and no, I don’t think it tastes like anything.
  2. Don’t drink coffee? You’re weird. But whatever, put it in your hot beverage.
  3. Hate hot beverages? WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU?? That’s fine, blend it into a smoothie.
  4. Hate smoothies? I can’t handle you anymore. Make these muffins.

But for real, here’s some recipe ideas that I’ve made with collagen (and I have more to come!) –

I have an allergy to nuts and almond flour which usually flares me up, but I don’t have any issue with this almond greek yogurt. Just a heads up in case you have issues with almonds. So excited for you to give these a try and tell me what you think! Now do what I say and get to it!!

Greek Yogurt Collagen Chocolate Chip Muffins


  • Author: juli
  • Yield: 11-12 muffins 1x


  • 1 container (5.3 ounces) greek yogurt*
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup maple sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2/3 cup cassava flour
  • 1/3 cup collagen peptides
  • 1/4 cup tapioca flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • pinch of salt
  • pinch of cinnamon
  • 1/3 cup chocolate chips


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment muffins liners and spray with coconut oil spray.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together greek yogurt, eggs, maple sugar, and vanilla extract until completely combined. Then sift together cassava flour, collagen peptides, tapioca flour, baking powder, salt and cinnamon. Once sifted, add to the large bowl with the greek yogurt mixture. Use a spatula to mix until completely and smooth then fold in chocolate chips. 
  3. Use an ice cream scoop to scoop the batter into 11-12 greased muffin liners. Then place in the oven to bake for 20-23 minutes, until a toothpick comes out cleans.
  4. Eat up! If you do not eat these all in one day (well, hats off to you), I recommend reheating these before eating to make sure they are just as delicious as the day you made them!


*I used Kite Hill Almond Milk Greek Yogurt, but you could also use a cashew milk or coconut milk yogurt!

Oh, Hi! I’m Juli.

I’m a food hoarder. And a really bad dancer. If you don’t know me well, you will probably not understand my humor. Therefore, I apologize ahead of time. Thanks for listening to my ramblings of my ever-changing life and trusting my kitchen mishaps. Your trust in me is appreciated.

      1. Loved the muffins! Of course I made them mini! And so happy to eat them for breakfast in the morn & get more protein in!

  1. I put Collagen in my overnight oats! My only caution is to mix well or you will get a congealed bite in a corner…

  2. Looks amazing! Does it need to be “Greek” yogurt? Or will plain cashew milk yogurt work as well? I’ve looked all over for dairy free Greek yogurt but can’t find it. Thanks!

    1. If you’re feeling ambitious, you can make regular yogurt into Greek yogurt by pouring it into a strainer, setting it over a bowl, and letting it drain for several hours. You might just need to start with a larger quantity of regular yogurt in order to get the required amount of Greek yogurt.

    1. Since collagen is a protein you can sub a protein powder if you have one. I do that with muffins sometimes and always turns out great!

  3. Will tapioca work instead of cassava?
    These look great. I might have to try them for mother’s day…

  4. What is the difference between the Great Lakes Collagen Hydrolysate and Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides? Are they interchangeable?

    This recipe looks wonderful – can’t wait to make them. Thanks!

      1. Thanks! I buy Great Lakes by the case after you recommended adding it to coffee. It is the easiest way for me to consume protein throughout the day.

  5. Have you noticed a difference in anything since using collagen peptides? I always eye them up when I’m at the store, but am skeptical. I just got an instant pot and want to try to make some homemade coconut yogurt, which also calls for them.

  6. These muffins look yummyyy!

    I literally mix my collagen, protein powder, and some berries in a bowl of greek yogurt and stir like a crazy person, and eat. Lazy person’s smoothie. – less crap to clean. Now we wait for hair to grow 😉

  7. OK…so first, I wish I wasn’t at work because I NEED to make these muffins PRONTO!! So that will be happening when I get home. And second, using collagen has been LIFE CHANGING! Couldn’t agree with you more Juli!! Thanks for this recipe for using collagen, for making it nut free and just for coming up with another awesome treat!!

  8. I’m sipping on some collagen right now. YES LIFE CHANGING!!! Holy grail. I think I’m gonna add some into your Simple Blueberry Muffins. I’ve made those constantly for the past 2.5 years! I am allergic to cassava 🙁 Thanks!!

  9. Whoa! So good. The entire family loved them. Will definitely need to make a double batch next time!! Thanks Juli!!

    1. Ugh! Erase erase! Somehow changed my rating to 4 stars as I published my comment. Totally meant 5!! Absolutely 5. So sorry about that!!

  10. Ok so baking these puppies right now with what I had in my pantry:
    Greek yogurt
    Almond flour
    Coconut palm sugar
    Oat flour
    Vital protein coconut collagen creamer
    Added cacao chips, slivered almonds and a chia/flax seed mixture
    Stay tuned!!

  11. I made these muffins this weekend and they’re FANTASTIC! Don’t substitute any of the flours because the texture is PERFECT as written. They’re not too sweet and super easy to make. Will definitely make again!

  12. Susan Alima Friar

    I love the idea of using cassava flour, but it doesn’t agree with my stomach. Do you have anything to offer as a substitute in your breads/muffins?

  13. I made these last night…I was a bit worried my batter was a bit runny and when my batch came out all my chocolate chips had sunk to the bottom..but these were amazing!!! Can’t wait to perfect this recipe after a few more trys! ????

  14. Anything that can be subbed in for the eggs? Not allowed to have ‘em 🙁 These look so amazing, I really want to make them!

    1. that was just me being a dumb dumb and totally forgetting about the almond milk yogurt. I just don’t seem to have issues with the almond milk yogurt so i forget about it compared to normal nuts and nut based foods. but if you use coconut based yogurt, it’s nut free. coconut isn’t a nut.

  15. I’m not sure what happened, but the texture of these turned out super dense for me. I used coconut sugar instead of maple and noticed that my Kite Hill Greek Style Yogurt was vanilla instead of plain, but would that make them more dense?

    1. i don’t think so, but i can’t say for sure since i haven’t made them with that yogurt. i wish i could help more but i would need a little more details or i would need to be there to see if any other changes were made to cause them to be dense

  16. Ok so these muffins are SO GOOD I had to hide them from myself. Like in the freezer somewhere. For anyone who is curious – I used primal kitchens vanilla coconut collagen fuel which is lightly sweetened with monkfruit (it’s all I had) and just left the sugar out entirely. Still tastes great. Thanks for another fab recipe Juli!

  17. These didn’t turn out well for me. They were dry and the chocolate chips sunk to the bottom. Your recipes are always amazing and I see other people had success so I’ll just have to try again so I can give them a 5-star rating!!

  18. Had to make my own maple sugar (3/4 cup white + 1tsp maple extract) and used almond flour instead of cassava and these are legit delicious. my choc chips keep settling to the bottom during baking but i don’t even care. These taste amazing and i don’t mean that in a “they taste good for being healthy food” but rather “i’m not sure i should be eating this bc it tastes so good.”
