Here is a fun and easy Banana Nut Protein Muffins recipe that will give you great post-workout fuel along with protein! These are some wonderfully moist and delicious muffins that you can take to work, throw in your gym bag, or give to the kids. They are a crowd-pleaser for those who want something sweet and nutty without any added sugars or high fructose corn syrup. They are really good for breakfast and to have with coffee, or a guilt-free snack in between breakfast and lunch or between lunch and dinner.
I cannot tell you how convenient it is to have a bunch of muffins like this pre-made! They are there just when you need them—when you are “angry” and about to eat something stupid and what do you know? There they are!
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Spray a muffin tin really well with nonstick spray. Peel the banana and put it in a large bowl with the rest of the ingredients except the walnuts. Mash it all up with a potato masher, and then mix it with a hand mixer until all of the lumps are gone. Stir in the walnuts with a spoon—you can save 6 of the prettiest walnuts for the tops of the muffins if you care about that sort of thing. Spoon the mixture into each of the muffin molds and if you saved the nice-looking walnuts, place one on top of the mixture on each muffin. Bake for 20 minutes. Poke one with a knife and if it comes out clean, it’s ready to be enjoyed!
