Banana Chocolate Chip Protein Muffins
Busy mornings during the school year call for a quick protein packed muffin, these Banana Chocolate Chip Protein Muffin has all the components for a great start to the day.
Welp it’s official, we cannot continue without taking about my DEEP obsession with the mini muffin pan!! I have used it weekly and I just cannot be stopped. Not sure about other peoples littles but for some weird reason my kids are unable to finish a regular size muffin, but if you give them a few mini muffins they miraculously disappear. I’m not sure if it’s the size being soo small that it becomes like a tiny treat or if they are just different which makes it fun. Either way I’m just ecstatic that they will finish a few of these Banana Chocolate Chip Protein Muffins, and not leave a half eaten regular size muffin on the table.
The best thing about these Banana Chocolate Chip Protein Muffins is that are made with simple clean ingredients you know and love. A banana, any milk your family likes, protein powder (we love Flav City in our house) flour of any kind, some mini chocolate chips. Simply yet effective way to get protein, carbs and some sweetness into the kiddos.
As with most of the muffins and loaf recipes on the blog these can be interchangeable. What to make the Banana Chocolate Chip Protein Muffins into a loaf, no worries just pour into a load pan bake at 350 degrees for 40- 50 minutes. Check with a pick to make sure it’s baked all the way through, let it cool and slice when ready. On the flip side you can switch any loaf recipe into fun tiny muffins. 350 degrees for 12-15 minutes should be perfect.
