Chocolate Banana Protein Muffins

It’s the second recipe for protein week! Chocolate banana protein muffins… nom. I know I always say this, but: these are so easy!!!! You literally blend all of the ingredients together and then bake them. If you want some extra oomph for your muffins, you could add chopped dates, coconut, peanut butter, or, oh, just about whatever your heart desires.

These little dudes are super dense and feel like a treat without being overly sweet or rich. They’re packed with protein powder and fiber from the oat bran, making them a great morning snack, or even breakfast if you have a couple.

Just a note, if you have a silicone muffin “tin” or silicone liners, definitely use those for this recipe! Apparently baked goods made with oats are prone to sticking, so silicone will make your life much easier.Chocolate Banana Protein Muffins | Project Yum

Aren’t my silicone liners adorable? I got them from my Mumma for my birthday. Thanks, Mumma! Her and my dad got me a whole mixing bowl full (literally) of baking and cooking supplies, which are slowly making appearances on the blog. (The aqua and white linen napkins that keep serving as a backdrop, for instance.) I need to take a picture in my new apron. It’s pretty cute.
