Banana and PB Protein Muffins!

Lately, I’ve been really focused on eating plenty, keeping fit and staying healthy. Part of my regime is to get in at least 90g of protein per day; I also like a sweet treat that won’t harm my waistline!

Alas, Banana PB Protein Muffins were born! I used the recipe from Dashing Dish as a base and then added the peanut butter (cause I could quite frankly marry peanut butter!!) and it adds a little more protein and fats to the muffin! You could easily add in some dried fruit, chocolate chips, coco powder or adapt protein flavours…anything!

Ingredients

– 1 large banana

– 6 egg whites

– 122g low fat greek yoghurt

– 67g oats

– 2 scoops of vanilla protein powder

– 1 tsp baking powder

– 1 tsp baking soda

– 1/2 tsp cinnamon

– 12 tsp peanut butter (optional)

 

Method (makes 12 muffins)

– Pre-heat the oven to 175°C

– Line muffin tin with foil or spray with non-stick cooking spray

– Blend all ingredients (excluding peanut butter) until you have a smooth batter

– Divide mixture into muffin tins

– Place one teaspoon of peanut butter into each cup

– Bake for 15-18 minutes until golden brown

 

You should now have a gooey, banana’y, protein’y packed sweet snack!
