Vanilla Bean Banana Protein Muffins
Well I made a batch of these amazing protein muffins last night.. since I had a few bananas that had become to ripe to eat but perfect for baking. So I threw together this recipe and it turned out absolutely amazing I had to share!
I love muffins, who does not love a delicious warm buttery muffin? I know I do! But they are usually not so good for the goof ol' waste line. Fortunately, we can always be creative and find a healthy version of everything, this being one of them. We don't have to feel guilty having a muffin for breakfast, as a mid day snack or post workout as long as they provide good macros to help us stay on track and sustain our energy throughout the day.

~Simple Vanilla Bean-Banana Protein Muffins~
1 large ripe banana (Let your banana ripen until its brown. This makes for perfect baking!)
3/4 cup of liquid egg-whites
3/4 cup Quick Oats
1 Yoplait Light very vanilla
Blend these together in a regular blender or if your like me its just as convenient to do in my magic bullet. Pour the contents into a large bowl and whisk the rest of the ingredients together.
2 Scoops of Vanilla protein. For this batch I used Muscletech Platinum Whey Vanilla Cake flavor
1 packet of Stevia sweetener (individual serving. You don’t need to sweeten these much since the yogurt you added earlier did that already)
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
4-5 drops of Vanilla
1/2 tsp of cinnamon-sugar (for the top after baked)
Butter (optional) I love to use the spray butter so the sugar cinnamon on top will stick and I'm not fattening the recipes with the add ons..
Mix all ingredients together. It does seem a bit water when filling the muffin cups,but this is why they turn out so moist! Use your judgement, if the batter seems far to watery add more protein powder. Make sure you spray your foil muffin liners since they will stick and really kinda ruins it if you don't do this.
Bake on 350 degrees for 18 minutes. Time varies on ovens so check them and use a toothpick to check. If the toothpick comes out clean and they are golden brown on top the muffins are done. Take them out and immediately spray the top of them with spray butter and sprinkle the Cinnamon Sugar on top. Enjoy these delicious clean eating option of banana protein muffins for on the go anytime.
