Have You Given Up Muffins? Try these Banana Protein Muffins!
Good news, these are made with quality ingredients and are a healthy protein snack. I’m always looking for ways to use protein powder. Banana protein muffins with peanut butter is an awesome way to add protein to baked goods. Furthermore, these high fiber muffins are delicious with PB2 frosting. Peanut butter drizzle makes everything better!
Protein baked goods are a sneaky way to add in protein and this recipe is a kid friendly muffin. I like using unflavored collagen or vanilla protein powder for baking.
So what did I use?
ChocZero Syrup: is a gluten free, soy free, and sugar alcohol free company. They use an exclusive monk fruit formula to make a line of products with absolutely no added sugar for the every day sugar free individual’s life.
Collagen Peptides: are sourced from grass-fed, pasture-raised bovine hides to ensure a natural, high quality, and sustainable source of this ancient nutrient. Collagen is the most abundant protein in the body and helps give structure to our hair, skin, nails, bones, ligaments and tendons in our body.
PB2: is a powdered peanut butter, made by pressing out most of the natural oils from roasted peanuts and then grinding the nuts into a fine powder.
For example, two tablespoons of natural peanut butter provide about 190 calories, while two tablespoons of PB2 provide just 45 calories. I added extra water to make it a drizzle.
Oats: Oats are a good source of a unique type of fiber called beta-glucan, which is associated with a range of health benefits. Furthermore, oats contain high amounts of many vitamins and minerals, such as manganese, phosphorus, copper, B-vitamins, iron, selenium, magnesium and zinc.
Greek Yogurt: is packed with protein, probiotics, and B12! In additional, Greek yogurt is a great vegetarian source of protein, especially if you need to avoid meat.
Banana: are a healthy source of fiber, potassium, vitamin B6, vitamin C, and various antioxidants and phytonutrients. Healthy ripe banana recipes are the best! They make moist banana muffins.
