Clean Eating Strawberry Banana Protein Muffins

While we were in San Diego we did go to the gym a few times, but it was about a 20 minute drive and let's be honest, we wanted to spend as much time as possible laying on the beach! Anyway, since it was so far away we just bought the protein shakes from the gym, and unfortunately they didn't have any egg white protein which is what I've been using for my shakes. They did have Dymatize Iso 100 in strawberry flavor, so I went with that and it was SO good! I was craving the strawberry shake on Sunday, so I picked up some fresh strawberries from the store to add to my post workout shake... and then they inspired me to make some new muffins! I basically mimicked my apple oat muffins with just a couple changes. 


Ingredients
1 ripe banana
6-8 strawberries, sliced
2 cups rolled oats
2 scoops vanilla whey protein powder
4 egg whites
1/2 cup non fat Greek yogurt
6 packets of Truvia 
2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp baking powder
pinch of salt


Directions
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. 
2. Place all ingredients in mixer and mix well. 
3. Place batter into prepared muffin tin and bake for 18-20 minutes. 

These are going to be a little higher in sugar because of the fruit so they are absolutely perfect for pre or post workout! I've also had a lot of questions over the past week about nutritional information and portion sizes on my recipes. I've touched on this before, but the reason I don't usually list nutrition info is because of the possible variation in ingredients, for example protein powders, greek yogurt etc. If you are interested in this information, I encourage you to go on to a site like myfitnesspal.com and use their recipe calculator so that you can calculate the nutritional info for YOUR recipe, using YOUR specific ingredients. You can then use the calculator to divide the recipe into as many portions as you would like so that it fits your macros and calories for the day. 

Let me know if you have questions! :)

  1. The muffins look so good!

    How is the taste of the egg white protein powder? Why did you make the switch from whey?

    1. I like the taste! It's not as sweet, but still good. I find that I have less bloat with the egg white.

  9. You know, this is exactly why I love your recipes...this recipe is so tweakable based on what fruits are in season/on sale/whatever. I'm sure they will be amazing with apple or pear this fall!

  10. how many calories are these

  11. I cannot believe people still ask how many calories recipes are... When will people learn that it is the quality of the nutrition not the calorie.

    Thanks... I'm going to give this recipe a shake right now...
