Banana Oat Protein Muffins

Banana Oat Protein Muffins

I love muffins, but it is no secret they are not always the healthiest choice, especially the ones you would pick up from your local coffee shop or bakery. In fact, there are DONUTS that have less calories than some muffins from your favorite coffee shops!  These muffins tend to actually be a gigantic cupcake, filled with sugar and loaded with fat, trying to sneak their way into your breakfast routine.  Just because they label them as a muffin, doesn’t mean they aren’t really a decadent cake hiding in an over sized muffin liner! So when you are needing a grab and go breakfast or snack idea, here is an option that will work perfectly with a busy schedule AND with your healthy lifestyle!

These muffins are basically just sneaking in a bowl of oatmeal, but baked with added protein! They will combat cravings with those dark chocolate chips soothing your sweet tooth all at the same time!

Store in airtight zipper bag or container in the fridge until eaten. These freeze very well, if you need to prepare and store for later!  I love these warm and fresh out of the oven, and pretty well always microwave them before eating so I can enjoy them warm anytime! Enjoy!
