Fall is here and that means it’s time to add things to the menu! One of my favorite foods ever, a fall favorite, is banana bread. Today I wanted to provide for you a recipe that retains the experience of traditional banana bread with a more calorie/macro conscious twist: Banana bread muffins!


1 cup mashed banana (approx 2 large bananas)

1 egg

4 tablespoons honey

3 tablespoons coconut oil melted + cooled

3/4 cup oat flour gluten free if necessary

1/2 cup vanilla protein powder

1 teaspoon baking powder

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon ginger

1/4 cup dark chocolate chips optional


Preheat oven to 350 and prepare a lined or greased muffin tin.

In a bowl, mash bananas until smooth. Stir in egg, honey, and coconut oil until combined.

Add in all remaining dry ingredients until batter has formed.

Pour batter into cups, filling 3/4 of the way. Bake muffins for 15 minutes or until golden brown and a toothpick comes out clean when inserted in the center of the muffin.

Eat muffin is approximately 110 cals, 4g protein, 5g fat, and 15g carbohydrates.
