Banana Protein Muffins

I got this recipe from Healthy Girl.

  • 7 large ripe bananas (mashed); you can use 4 but using 7 = more moistness(:
  • 1 flax “egg”
  • 3 flax “egg whites” (basically, use four flax eggs for this entire recipe)
  • 2 tsp vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup Coconut Milk, or any vegan milk
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 5 Scoops Sunwarrior Warrior Blend Protein ( for about 80g protein, you may need less scoops for other protein brands)
  • 2 cup oats (use a food processor or blender to turn them into a fine, flour like consistency)

Preparation:

  1. Pre-Heat the oven to 350 °F
  2. Mix the Mashed Bananas,  flax eggs, oil, vegan milk, cinnamon, vanilla, baking soda and baking powder together in a bowl
  3. After those ingredients are mixed, slowly add in the oat flour mixture and the protein until mixed completely
  4. Pour batter into lined or greased muffin tins
  5. Bake for 20 – 25 minutes, or until you can stick a toothpick in the muffins, and the come out clean.

I don’t like to use oil when baking, I know, weird right.  I prefer to insert dried fruit for oil.  Not sure if it gives it the same effect, but the concoction always turns out great in the end.  So instead of using 2 tsp. of vegetable oil, you can use 1 – 2 dried prunes/plums/or dates.

  • To make flax-seed substitute, combine 1 tablespoon of milled (ground) flax seed with 3 tablespoons of water for each egg you need. Mix it well and let the mixture sit for 1 to 2 minutes. Add to the recipe as you would an egg. Though flax is considered a digestive aid, it should be noted that, for some people, flax seed also has a laxative effect.
