Peanut Butter Banana Protein Muffins
I tried a recipe from the CHAARG Run Club Athlete Cookbook [PSA — if you are a member of CHAARG Run Club, you will receive this cookbook!] + it was AMAZING! I usually have a hard time deciding what to eat after a hard workout but these muffins cover all the bases — carbs, protein, absolutely delicious… + SO EASY to make!
The peanut butter banana protein muffins have a spongey texture that are a little surprising at first — but in the best way possible! It’s hard to believe that these could be considered a recovery treat when they taste just like a dessert… I definitely have a new go to in my kitchen now ; )
- 2 Bananas [brown bananas are the best!]
- 1 cup All Natural Peanut Butter
- 2 Eggs
- 1/4 cup Agave
- 1/4 cup Protein Powder — we love this Vanilla Bean flavor
- 1 tbsp Vanilla Extract
- 1 tsp Baking Powder
- 1/2 tsp Sea Salt
- 1/2 cup Organic Dark Chocolate Chips
#1] Preheat oven to 400 degrees + spray a standard muffin tin with cooking spray.
#2] Place all ingredients except the chocolate chips in a blender. Blend mixture approximately 30-45 seconds or until completely smooth.
#3] Using a spatula or spoon lightly stir in the chocolate chips.
#4] Scoop batter into muffin tin + bake 12-14 minutes [or until muffins have set!].
