Banana & Oat Protein Muffins

Ingredients

  • 2 Ripe Bananas

  • ½ tsp Baking Soda
  • 1 Scoop Protein Powder (I recommend Vanilla)

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Spray tin with non-stick cooking spray or line 12 muffin tins with silicone or foil liners. (Very important!)
  • Place all of the ingredients, wet first, in a blender or food processor and blend until smooth.
  • Pour into muffin tin and sprinkle with cinnamon.
  • Bake for 20 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.
  • Enjoy warm with coconut butter. Yummm!

**Chia Egg Replacer**

  • For one egg equivalent, add 1 Tbsp. chia seeds to 3 Tbsp. water.

That’s it! So easy and now you can get on with your baking. Enjoy!

      They are muffins, not cupcakes. 🙂

      I honestly have no idea about calories. I don’t count calories, it’s not the diet method I choose to follow or use to coach. I tend to focus on overall healthy food choices and not get caught up on “how many calories are in this meal.”

      Sorry I couldn’t be more helpful!

      Tried the Banana and Oat Protein muffins..Loved Them!!! This is a great healthier alternative to banana bread (which I love) without all the bad stuff or the guilt! Plus you feel satisfied after eating, but not overly stuffed 🙂 Thanks!

      I didn’t figure fiber but I have the rough estimates for protein, carbs, fat content and calories based on my version of the recipe. I used Fage greek yogurt, Optimum nutrition gold standard whey protein, and 2 whole medium eggs, plus the rest of the recipe followed exactly. Per muffin you end up with 7g protein, 26g carbs, 2g fats, and 142 calories each (12 muffins). And they came out good, too 🙂 hope this helps.

    Leigh,

    It really depends on how you make them. I don’t usually count fat, protein, fiber, etc. I tend to strive simply for healthy fats, high protein, and plenty of fiber. It also depends on what protein powder you are using (my particular protein powder of choice has 26g per serving), if you choose to use eggs or chia seeds, if you add flax, etc etc.

      I usually get about a 12-muffin-tin and a 1/2 — so about 18 muffins. 🙂 Depends completely on how big your muffin tin is and how high you are filling the cups.
