Here's How To Make Low Carb Coconut and Chocolate Chip Protein Muffins:

Preheat your oven to 350°F. Line a muffin tin with 6 muffin liners, then spray them with oil. These muffins are sticky, so really go ahead and coat the liners. In a small bowl, mix together the protein powder, almond flour, salt and baking powder. 
In a large bowl, add in your yogurt, melted coconut oil, vanilla extract and coconut liquid stevia. Mix well. 
Next, add in your eggs. Mix well. 
Slowly add your dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing well. 
Once everything is mixed very well, fold in your chocolate chips and coconut chips, reserving some of both for the top of your muffins.
Spoon the batter evenly into the muffin liners. You can fill them about 3/4 of the way full. 
Now place the remaining chocolate chips and coconut chips on top of your muffins. 
Bake for 15-20 minutes. When your toothpick comes out clean, your muffins are done. Or maybe even a little before that. If you notice your coconut chips browning too much (some of ours did), you could even cover the tops of your muffins with aluminum foil.  The muffins themselves won’t brown evenly, so don’t use that as a guide to tell if they are done. When they are done, let the muffins cool on a wire rack for about 10-15 minutes. 
Now, just serve and enjoy!
