Chocolate Banana Protein Muffins

Chocolate Banana Protein Muffins

One of the most requested recipes is for my protein muffins. I make these muffins a few times a month, and I always double the recipe and freeze all but 4 at a time in quart-sized freezer bags. That way, I can easily pull out 4 more from the freezer and always have fresh muffins on hand.

You can use any protein powder for this recipe, but I always recommend Vega because it tastes great, is plant-based (I eat meat but prefer it in the burger form in moderation), and is non-GMO (no weird, fake ingredients).

These muffins are the perfect on-the-go snack pre or post workout or for dessert. They are dense, versatile and healthy! Enjoy!mary davis fitness, protein muffins, protein treats, protein desserts, protein snacks, annapolis

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Chocolate Banana Protein Muffins

macros per muffin (makes 15): 170 calories, 5.6g fat, 24.1 carbs, 8.1g protein, 7.1g sugar, 6.2g fiber

Mix the following in a high-powered blender or Vitamix:

3 medium bananas (275g)

1 1/2 cups of pitted medjool dates (150g)

8T. nut butter (peanut, almond or cashew)

1 cup unsweetened vanilla (or regular) almond milk

Pour into a bowl and add the following:

2 scoops (2.6 oz) Vega Sport Chocolate protein powder

1.5 cups of wheat bran (recommend Bob’s Red Mill)

1.5 cups high fiber oat bran cereal (recommend Bob’s Red Mill), or quick oats (not instant)

2T. unsweetened coco powder

1 teaspoon baking powder

Divide into 15 greased muffin tins, and bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes until a toothpick comes out almost clear. It’s okay if they are a little undercooked, because they will cook more when you pull them out of the oven, and they are more moist this way. When cool, leave a few out, and freeze the rest for a rainy day.

I like to plan ahead. It's how I get a leg up on my week so there's less of a chance that I slip into bad habits. That way I can focus on loving life here in Annapolis, Maryland.
