Chocolate Protein Muffins


These are some of my favorites! I love to have a muffin as my carb in the morning with my protein.

Ingredients

2.5 cups of Quick Oats

1.5 cups of Chocolate Whey Protein Powder

5 T Unsweetened Coco Powder

½ Cup Baking Splenda

½ tsp Ground Cinnamon

½ t Salt

1 t Baking Powder

3 Over-Ripe Bananas

¼ C Vegetable Oil

1 T of Vanilla Extract

2 Eggs

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

  2. Line muffin tins or spray with cooking oil. I love the silicon muffin cups because I bake so much!

  3. In a large bowl mix together oatmeal, protein powder, coco powder, splenda, cinnamon, salt and baking powder.

  4. In a large bowl mash the bananas (a potato masher works well). Add oil, vanilla extract and eggs.

  5. Pour dry ingredients into the bowl with the mashed bananas and mix until well combine.

  6. Scoop batter into muffin tins and bake for 25-28 minutes. You may use a toothpick to determine if the muffins are fully baked. Allow to cool 10 minutes. ENJOY!
