I love these. These muffins are not only delicious, but they are protein packed, energy boosting, nutritious, and also filling. They are a great way to start the day when you need to grab-and-go, or they also serve as a great snack option when you're hungry. This recipe makes a lot of muffins!
Ingredients for this recipe:
-1 banana, mashed
-2 cups unsweetened apple sauce
-1 teaspoon vanilla extract
-1/2 cup raw honey
-4 cups Old Fashioned oats ( I like Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free Oats)
-1 cup shredded unsweetened coconut
-1/2 cup Bob's Red Mill Whey Protein Powder
-1/4 cup ground flaxseed
-1/4 cup chia seeds
-1 Tablespoon cinnamon
-3 teaspoons baking powder
-1 teaspoon salt
-1 1/4 cups milk
-1/2 cup raisins
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix eggs, banana, vanilla applesauce and honey together in a bowl. Add in oats, coconut, protein powder, flax, chia seeds, cinnamon, baking powder and salt and mix well with wet ingredients.
Then pour in milk and combine. Add raisins last, and divide batter into greased muffin tins. I love this recipe because it makes a large batch. I usually make 6 large muffins and about 9-10 small with this recipe. I keep some out in the fridge (lasts about 3-4 days in fridge) and freeze the rest for later!
Bake 30-45 minutes (depending on size of muffin tins used) or until toothpick comes out clean.
