Healthy Banana Protein Muffins

Unfortunately, I thought that I had the ability to directly upload videos to my blog. I was wrong! So, I will attach the video that I made here. The quality isn’t great for some reason, but the video isn’t what matters– the recipe is. 😛 These muffins are my favorite because sometimes I want a nice treat (especially a guilt free one). I like these the most heated up with peanut butter!!

Banana Protein Muffins

(I originally found this recipe on Pinterest)– it says that the author is Liz Thomson so s/o to her.

Ingredients
  • 1 large ripe banana (I used two)
  • ¾ cup of egg whites (the reason for egg whites is for health purposes… don’t worry too much about keeping out the yolks)
  • ¾ cup whole wheat flour (Sometimes I use white depending on what I have)
  • ½ cup plain Greek yogurt (I always use Chobani)
  • 2 scoops of vanilla protein powder (I always use Vega which is available at Target)
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • Optional: walnuts, chocolate chips, etc.
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 350.
  2. Add all the ingredient to a food processor or mixer and blend until smooth.
  3. Spray a muffin tin with non-stick spray.
  4. Scoop about ⅓ cup of batter into each muffin tin.
  5. I usually just make 12 normal sized muffins.
  6. Bake for 11-15 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Mine took 15 this time.
