Healthy Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins
I had a client send me her favorite banana chocolate chip muffin recipe. She asked if it was healthy enough to fit into her meal plan, and told her that there were a few tweaks I wanted to make to the recipe. I attached the video below to take you through the tweaking process of these muffins. Ultimately, I lowered the sugar content and increased the protein content. By doing this, I lowered the glycemic index of the muffins.
3 medium bananas yellow, not brown
1 1/2 cups oat flour
2 scoops raw vanilla protein powder or whey
1 cup Fat Free Vanilla Greek Yogurt Dannon Oikos Triple Zero
3/4 cup stevia in the raw powder
2 large egg whites
1 large egg
1 1/2 tbsp pure vanilla extract
1 1/2 tbsp unsweetened vanilla almond milk
1 tbsp coconut oil
1 tsp baking soda
1/3 cup "Enjoy Life" choclate chips
1/4 tsp salt
Gather all ingredients and preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Blend all ingredients (except chocolate chips) in a food processor/blender . Stir in chocolate chips after you are done blending. Spray a muffin tin with cooking spray and pour banana chocolate chip muffin batter into the muffin tin.
Bake at 350 degrees for 18-20 minutes. Remove and enjoy!
