Banana Oat Protein Powder Muffins

0

I make a lot of muffins – the kids love them, I see it as an opportunity to cram lots of healthy stuff in a small little package, and they are great to throw in their lunch boxes.

I am always trying new recipes looking for the right combination of health and tastiness. I  made a real stinker of a batch earlier in the week that were barely edible.  But this one was a winner.  I judge it by how many muffins are left by noon – out of a dozen, 2 were left.  We all kept coming back for just one more – they were tasty, filling, and didn’t feel like we just consumed a cupcake for breakfast.

If you need to get a chocolate protein powder, I am absolutely devoted to Vega protein powders and their chocolate flavor is excellent.  http://myvega.com
