Level up your morning routine with this healthy breakfast muffin recipe! These Banana Oat Protein Muffins pack some great macros, are easy to make with common ingredients, and are absolutely delicious.
All you need? Something to mix your ingredients in and your preferred size muffin pan!
Add right into your mixing bowl or whatever you’re using 2 cups of rolled oats, 2 large ripe bananas, 4 large egg whites, 1/2 cup unsweetened apple sauce, 1 teaspoon of baking powder, 1 teaspoon of baking soda, 2 teaspoons of ground cinnamon, and 4 scoops of a vanilla or banana protein powder.
Want more of a chocolate banana taste? Use a chocolate protein powder!
Mix all of those ingredients until your banana oat protein muffins mix is somewhat smooth. I like using a hand mixer to speed this step up but a fork or spoon work just as good with some effort!
Not sweet enough? Add some sweetener to the recipe!
Take out a muffin pan, coat it with some non-stick cooking spray, and evenly distribute your mix into it. I used a jumbo muffin pan today and filled each spot around 3/4 of the way full.
Put your banana oat protein muffins into the oven on 350F/176C for around 25-30 minutes. Keep in mind that if you’re using a smaller pan they’ll likely bake much faster so make sure to watch them.
Remove your protein muffins from the oven, let them cool, and pop them right out with a fork!
Pro tip? Top them with some fat free whipped cream or topping, complimenting flavored Greek yogurt, cream cheese, peanut butter, and so on.
You could also even add more protein by topping these banana oat protein muffins with some High Protein Frosting!
