SIMPLE 1 BLOCK MUFFINS - BANANA & CHOCOLATE VARIATION
(Recipe makes twelve 1 block muffins)
2 scoops protein powder (42g protein) -- I use chocolate flavor here
3 1/3 bananas
3/4 c apple sauce
2 Tbsp Coconut Butter, slightly melted** (link below)
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp baking soda
Preheat oven to 365 degrees.Mix or blend bananas and applesauce until well mashed.
Add in eggs, cinnamon, coconut butter and vanilla and mix/blend until combined again.
Add in protein powder and baking soda and mix until well combined.
Pour into 12 muffins greased muffin tins and bake for about 15 mins until done.
** This is the coconut butter that I buy, so easy and shipped right to my door: Nutiva Organic Coconut Manna
Once again feel free to substitute coconut oil or a nut butter for the coconut manna -- just make sure to keep 18g of fat in order to keep the recipe balanced.
These are a great pre-workout snack. I grab one every morning at 4:50am on my way out the door for my morning session. They are just enough to give me energy to hit both a strength session and tough metcon.
