If it seems like I’ve been posting a lot of recipes using banana lately, you aren’t wrong. When at the grocery store, my eyes always over estimate the amount of bananas I’m confident I can eat in a week. The problem is, within a few days of going to the store, I still have half the bunch of bananas left, but they are all brown. Hence, the many recipes I’ve been cookin’ up lately using banana, like my 6 ingredient paleo pancakes, or my gluten-free banana bread.
Flourless High Protein Banana Oat Muffins
Today’s recipe, high protein banana oat muffins, are a perfect breakfast on the go or morning/afternoon snack that’ll give you a bit of protein to keep you full until the next meal. These muffins are not very sweet, which makes them perfect for a snack rather than a dessert or sweet-tooth demolisher. I love banana and nut butter combined, (who doesn’t), so these banana oat muffins are delectable with a smear of nut butter on top, especially when they’ve been warmed first. The nut butter gets gooey and really brings out the delicious banana flavor of the muffins. But, no fear if you don’t want to add the nut butter, they taste great without as well.
Why So High in Protein?
These muffins are only 96 calories each, with a powerful punch of 6g protein per muffin. They are flour free, oil and butter free, use no added sugar, and are healthy enough to eat as a pre or post workout snack. The recipe uses egg whites and a bit of protein powder which is what makes these muffins higher in protein and perfect for a healthy snack. And don’t worry, you can’t taste the protein powder whatsoever. There are only 2 scoops in the entire recipe, so you don’t have to worry about that odd aftertaste protein powder can leave. For a chocolate banana version of these delicious muffins, omit the cinnamon and use chocolate protein powder instead of vanilla. I used this chocolate protein powder and had delicious results.
All right, enough babble about the banana oat muffins. Time for the recipe!
