How To Make Protein Banana Muffins
These protein muffins are made in one bowl and baked in the oven for 25-30 minutes.
First, preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Then, in a large mixing bowl, mash banana. Add in the remaining wet ingredients. This includes: eggs, egg whites, almond milk and vanilla.
Next, add in the dry ingredients. This includes: protein powder, almond flour, tapioca flour coconut flour, baking powder, cinnamon and salt.
Pour the batter into a lined muffin pan. (I like using silicone muffin liners).
Lastly, bake the muffins at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes, or until done. Let them cool to room temperature on a wire cooling rack.
These muffins are best stored in the fridge, but can be stored in the freezer as well.
Place the muffins in an air-tight container or baggie for up to a week in the fridge or one month in the freezer.

Can I use a different type of flour than paleo mix? Like can I just use cassava?
Hi! I haven't tried any substitutions but cassava flour may work. If you try, let me know how it turns out.
Can I use egg white protein powder?
Hi! I've never baked with egg white protein powder so I can't say whether it would work. If you give it a try, I'd love to know the results.
