Banana Oat Protein Muffins

My love for muffins is never ending!

I am so excited to be sharing these protein-packed delicious muffins on the blog today. They are naturally sweetened with bananas which are an incredible pre, during or post-workout snack. They are packed with electrolytes and glucose to fuel your muscles. I love adding in my favourite protein powder to give these muffins and extra boost to help keep blood sugar levels stable and to add some extra density.

I love using this gluten-free flour (I have not tried these muffins with other flours but I’m sure spelt flour or regular wheat flour would work too), and I love using Botanica Perfect Protein – read more about the benefits and negatives of protein powder here.

By:

Ingredients
  • 1 cup 1-for-1 gluten free baking flour
  • 2 tbsp ground flax + 4 tbsp water
  • 1/2 cup quick or rolled oats
  • 1/4 cup vanilla vegan protein powder
  • 1 tbsp aluminum-free baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp ceylon cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1 cup melted coconut oil - about 1/2 cup solid

  • 3 ripe bananas mashed
  • 1/4 cup cacao nibs or dairy-free chocolate chips
Directions
  • Step 1 Preheat the oven to 350F
  • Step 2 In a bowl, Mix the flax and water and set aside. Combine the flour, oats, protein powder, baking powder, cinnamon and salt until well combined
  • Step 3 In a separate bowl, combine the vanilla, coconut oil, maple syrup, mashed bananas and cacao nibs until well mixed. Combine the two mixtures all together until no clumps are left – the batter should be wet but sticky (not runny and not dry – add more coconut oil or oats to adjust consistency)
