Chocolate Chip Banana Protein Muffins

BreakfastDessertMeal PrepSnacks

By: Mariella Irivarren

Looking for a delicious, satisfying, healthy treat while still getting in that protein you need? Or just for an easy, filling snack that’s sure to please? You have to try these amazing Chocolate Chip Banana Protein Muffins! 

Made with quinoa, they contain good-for-you fibre, potassium and iron. This means they are great for an energy kick in the morning, or as replenishment after a workout. Although honestly, you can enjoy these banana protein muffins any time of day. How nice is it to have fresh muffins made to grab on the go? Especially when they are healthy and tasty enough for the whole family?!

Not feeling chocolate chips? No problem! Leave them out or swap them for some dried golden berries and/or pomegranate seeds. So good, not to mention antioxidant rich!

What is also great about this recipe is that it is gluten-free – but will not break the bank! Miski Organics’ quinoa flakes and flour are a much less costly alternative to many gluten-free flours on the market.

And of course, these banana protein muffins are also vegan and plant-based! This recipe is so good – you’ll be whipping up another batch before you know it!
