Many people are making healthier food choices today as they start to follow their resolutions. Making healthier food choices can mean something different to each person. When I hear healthier food choices, I think of a food or dish that contains vitamins and nutrients that my body needs to function well…this includes healthy amounts of fat, carbs, protein and fiber. This recipe for Peanut Butter & Banana Protein Muffins from Angela Burke fits that bill.
Peanut Butter and Banana Protein Muffins
2 Tbsp. Peanut Butter
1 Medium Banana Mashed
¼ Cup Oatmeal (Uncooked)
1 Whole Egg
½ Cup Egg Whites
1 Scoop Vanilla Protein
1 Tsp. Baking Powder
Dried Banana Chips
Peanut Butter and Banana Protein Muffin Cooking Instructions
Instructions: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a small bowl, hand- mix all ingredients together except the banana chips. Place muffin liners in 6 of the cups of a 12 count muffin tray and then spray a light coat of a non stick cooking spray. Evenly disperse all of the mixture into the muffin liners and top each uncooked muffin with a few dried banana chips. Place tray in the center rack of the oven and allow to cook for 12 min. The tops of the banana chips should be golden brown when they are about done. Leave in longer if muffin is not thoroughly cooked.
