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

Ingredients

Scale
  • 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

Instructions

  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!

Notes

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

    Are you able to use coconut sugar instead of maple sugar?

    1. juli says:

      yes!! the color of the muffins will just look different

  2. Amy says:

    I’m curious, what makes this nut free if it’s using almond (or cashew or coconut) based yogurt?

    1. juli says:

      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.

  3. Annette says:

    What is nutritional breakdown? They look so good!!!

    1. juli says:

      no clue, but you can find that information out by plugging the recipe into a nutritional calculator online!

  4. Joanne Minichillo says:

    These are so delicious!! I used almond flour, coconut sugar and coconut yogurt.

    1. juli says:

      glad you liked it joanne!

  5. Katie says:

    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. juli says:

      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

  6. Diana says:

    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!

    1. juli says:

      so glad you liked it Diana!

  7. Ashley says:

    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!!

    1. juli says:

      sorry to hear that, ashley. i wish i was there to help you problem solve!

  8. Jennifer says:

    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.”

    1. juli says:

      awesome! so glad they worked out!!
