Description

At just 60 calories each, these muffins are a perfect low calorie snack!


Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 large ripe banana
  • 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 3/4 cup of egg whites
  • 3/4 cup whole wheat flour
  • 2 scoops of vanilla protein powder (I use whey protein)
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • Optional: walnuts, chocolate chips, etc.

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350.
  2. Add the banana and Greek yogurt to a food processor and blend until smooth.
  3. Transfer to a bowl and fold in the egg whites, flour, protein powder, baking soda, baking powder, and cinnamon until just mixed.
  4. Spray a muffin tin with non-stick spray.
  5. Scoop about 1/4 cup of batter into each muffin tin.
  6. I made 14 muffins which is an awkward amount of muffins to make so if you prefer, you can make them a bit larger and just make a dozen. That’ll only add about 10 calories to each muffin, so no big deal.
  7. Bake for 11-13 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Mine took 12 minutes exactly.

Notes

Because these are very healthy and can be less sweet than a traditional muffin, I recommend eating these with a smear of peanut butter on top!
