Top Tips for Protein Muffins

Measure Mashed Bananas: Be sure to mash the bananas and then measure before adding them to the muffin batter. The size of banana you use will determine how mashed you have.

Make them yours: These are classic banana protein muffins, but feel free to add chocolate chips (like we did in these photos!), chopped nuts, or berries for the flavor of your choice.

Substitute bananas for apples when you’re in a pinch: Yes, people ask the same question when making Banana Protein Muffins! Apple will do the job instead. Use 1 cup applesauce instead of 2 mashed bananas.

Can you make these vegetarian?

Since these protein muffins contain eggs, they are not considered vegan. We suggest following our Vegan Banana Bread recipe and making muffins with the batter instead of the loaf.

storage

These muffins will keep in an airtight container on the counter for 2-3 days. Or, to extend their freshness, store them in the refrigerator in an airtight container for up to 5 days.

To Freeze Your Protein MuffinsLet them cool completely before placing them on a baking sheet. Then freeze for 2 hours before transferring to freezer-safe, gallon-size bags. Remove as much air as possible and freeze for up to 3 months.
