Brown Bananas Fit Tip
Banana Bread Protein Muffins Recipe: Usually when fruits turn brown and get mushy…they go straight in the trash. With one exception: BANANAS!;
When the bananas in my house turn brown, it means one thing: BANANA BREAD (a clean, healthy version of course)! I always say… “The browner the banana, the better the bread!”
So last night I made use of my uber-ripe bananas and made Banana Bread Protein Muffins! To boost the protein I added whey protein powder to the recipe…which makes the muffins a little more “spongy” than a regular muffin. But spongy or not, they tasted amazing! Not to mention these little low-cal snacks are packed with protein compared to most muffins!
Let’s compare:
Serving Size: 1 Muffin Calories: Total Fat: Total Carbs: Sugars: Protein:
Betty Crocker Banana Muffin 270 14g 32g 17g 3g
Our Banana Protein Muffin* 60 0.5g 7g 2.1g 8g
I don’t know about you…but I’d choose the Protein Muffins any day! You could eat 4 of them and still be consuming less calories & carbs than one Betty Crocker muffin!
If you have read this far…then I assume you probably want the recipe too 🙂 So here you go:

  • 3/4 cup       Ripe banana – mashed (about 1-1 ½ large bananas)
  • 3/4 cup       Egg whites
  • 3/4 cup       Old fashioned rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup       Pain non-fat greek yogurt
  • 1/4 cup       Baking Stevia

  • 1 tsp             Baking powder
  • 1 tsp             Baking soda
  • ¼ tsp          Cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup       Chopped walnuts* (optional)
1. Preheat oven to 350 F and spray muffin tin with non-stick cooking spray (or use silicone cupcake liners).
2. Blend oats in a high-speed blender until they turn into flour.
3. Mix together remaining ingredients until batter is smooth.
4. Pour batter evenly into 12 muffin tins (about ¾ full)
5. Bake in oven for 15-20 minutes.
