Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/3 cup all purpose flour
  • cup protein powder I used optimum nutrition gold standard whey
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 ripe spotty bananas
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup Greek yogurt used whole milk plain, vanilla will also work
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line a muffin tin with silicone liners or use non-stick spray. (I don't recommend using paper liners)
  • In a medium sized bowl combine flours, protein powder, baking powder, baking soda and salt. 
  • Whisk well.
  • In a large bowl, mash your bananas very well! I like to use a potato masher but a fork will also work. Make sure you don’t have any large banana pieces. Your mashed bananas should be nice and uniform. 
  • Add in the yogurt, egg, sugar and vanilla. 
  • Mix it up well.
  • Add flour mixture to the wet ingredients and mix until well combined.
  • Fill the prepared muffin tin, nearly filling each muffin to the top. This should make ~8 or so muffins, depending on the size of your muffin tin.
  • Bake muffins at 375 for 20-22 minutes until slightly golden brown and a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
  • Allow to cool fully and enjoy! Store in an airtight container for up to 1 week or freeze for up to 2 months.

Notes

May use all all-purpose flour, wheat flour, or gluten free flour. This recipe has not been tested with alternative flours like almond or coconut flour.
I tested this recipe using a whey and plant based protein powder. The whey turned out fluffier and more dense, while the plant based was more moist. Both were great, just different textures!
