Banana Chocolate Chip Protein Muffins
All of you know that I can’t resist a new muffin recipe! A full bushel of ripe bananas provided just the opportunity for me to experiment with a family favorite, which turned out so delicious! I hope you enjoy this simple recipe, it was a total hit at the Pelly Household!
First, preheat the oven to 350F and prep your muffin pan with liners or non-stick baking spray.
Next in a large mixing bowl, combine the following ingredients:
3 large ripe bananas, mashed
1 whole egg
2 tbsp coconut oil
1tsp vanilla extract
1/3 cup Lakanto sweetener (this is a monkfruit sweetener that has no impact on blood sugar, great as a replacement for diabetics or those wanting to reduce sugars in their diet, it’s a 1:1 swap for regular sugar)
1/3 cup unsweetened almond milk
Blend the following dry ingredients together in a small bowl:
1 1/2 cups Kodiak Cakes protein pancake mix (buttermilk)
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup Level-1 Protein (I used Cinnamon Cookie Batter flavor)
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 cup Enjoy Life Mini Chocolate Chips
Fold the dry ingredients into the wet mixture until well incorporated, careful not to over-mix! Next pour 1/4 cup of the batter into the prepped muffin pan and bake for 18-20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out cleanly. Allow to cool for a few minutes before removing from the pan!
