You read that right; these are yummy chocolate chip muffins with a macro-friendly spin.
I've made protein muffins as both regular-sized and mini's. Both tasted delicious, but I've found the typical muffin size to come out more moist!
-1 Chocolate chip muffin mix (any brand is fine)
-2 scoops of unflavored protein powder (I used Isopure)
-3 ripe bananas
-4oz Sugar-free apple sauce (substitute for oil in mix)
-mini semi-sweet chocolate chips
Step 1: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Step 2: Peel and mash the ripe bananas in a bowl.
Step 3: Add in chocolate muffin mix; follow instructions on the back of the mix. Next, add protein and apple sauce. Stir to desired consistency.
Step 4: Spray muffin tins thoroughly. Divide the mixture evenly into muffin tins. Add the desired amount of mini chocolate chips on top.
Step 5: Bake in the oven at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes.
Step 6: Let cool and enjoy!
Muffins are safe to store in a tightly sealed container in a refrigerator for up to 7 days.
Serving size: 2 muffins
