Banana Protein Muffins

Posted on November 30, 2012 at 7:05 PM

Banana Protein Muffins



Normally muffins are full of white flour, wheat, soy, hydrogenated oils, and white sugar - all of the stuff that packs on pounds of unwanted fat. 

It's true, you can make a muffin that has healthy ingredients, high protein, and none of the yucky ingredients listed above. 

These Banana Protein Muffins are a great option for a "quick" grab-n-go high-protein snack, breakfast, or "after-dinner" dessert. 

I modified the orginal recipe from Dashing Dish  by eliminting the Stevia, as I do not like the way Stevia Tastes.  I prefer to use Raw Honey to sweeten my muffins. So yes, this recipe does have sugars but Raw Honey has many health benefits....

Some of Raw Honey's Benefits :

Raw honey has anti-viral, anti-bacterial, and anti-fungal properties. It promotes body and digestive health, is a powerful antioxidant, strengthens the immune system, eliminates allergies, and is an excellent remedy for skin wounds and all types of infections.  Raw honey can also stabilize blood pressure, balance sugar levels, relieve pain, calm nerves, and it has been used to treat ulcers. Raw honey is also an expectorant and anti-inflammatory and has been known to effectively treat respiratory conditions such as bronchitis and asthma.

I also modified this original recipe, by adding in some unsweetened shredded coconut which is full of healthy fats and fibers, sea salt, and vanilla extract.  

Let's get to it! 

Ingredients:

3/4 cup Ripe banana (about 1 large banana)

3/4 cup Egg whites

1/2 cup Plain 2% greek yogurt

3/4 cup Oats (I used Trader Joe's Gluten Free Oats)

2 scoops Vanilla protein powder (I used Sun Warrior Raw Vegan Vanilla, or you could use any flavor you would like!)

3 tbsp. Unsweetened Shredded Coconut

1/4 cup Raw Honey

1 tsp Baking powder

1/2 tsp Cinnamon


1 tsp Vanilla Extract

3 tbsp. unsweetened coconut shreds

Directions:

This is the super easy part!  

 Add all of the ingredients into a blender, and mix for about 1-2 minutes or until completely blended.

  1. Just spray the pan with some pam, or coconut oil or butter. Something like that so the muffins don't stick.
  2. Pour the batter into 12 muffin tins.
  3. Bake for 15-18 minutes or until a knife or toothpick comes out clean.
