Protein Peanut Butter Banana Muffins (GF)

Want a protein packed way to start the morning? Not really a fan of chalky, lumpy protein smoothies? Then make these Protein Peanut Butter Banana Muffins.
These muffins make the perfect quick breakfast option or pre or post workout snack. They are filled with protein from the Brown Rice Protein Powder, Peanut Flour, peanut butter, and peanuts. Protein is crucial for helping rebuild muscles after a hard strength session as well as keeping you satiated throughout the day. They also provide healthy carbs from the banana, honey, and oat flour, which help to provide energy and refill glycogen stores after they’ve been depleted.
These healthy treats are also a great idea to add to your next meal prep. They are easy to make and freezer friendly. You can make a double batch to store in the freezer. To reheat, just wrap them in a damp paper towel and microwave for about a minute or until heated through. These muffins make a great option for busy mornings. You can run out the door with a few of these to eat. You may have crayons in your hair dropping your kid off at daycare, but you still are starting the day on a healthy, protein packed note.
