That remaining explained, I’m beginning to notice that I can no for a longer period be sleep deprived, above-caffeinate myself, and nevertheless perform like a typical human being. My behavior of remaining up till 1AM on the weekdays are starting to use on me. Also, I need to make a notice to stop examining my e mail at 3AM. Plainly I have no notion what the time period ‘unplugged’ means.

Oh nicely. On to additional enjoyable things…

On Saturday I identified 10 bananas in a brown paper bag that I had obtained eariler in the 7 days. Thank goodness for the reason that I was in a baking temper! MUFFINS, BREADS, COOKIES… I simply cannot end.

Bananas are my absolute most loved! They pack potassium and digestible (good-for-you) carbs. So, what does this signify? Very well, they give your body fuel and pretty a great deal make you really feel like a rock star. But not the kind of rock stars that do medicines.

In all seriousness, I like baking with bananas for the reason that they include dampness, act as a binder, and have adequate flavor where you don’t will need to increase added sugar.

These banana muffins are my new favourite snack for SO lots of factors. They have straightforward elements, come out insanely moist and whole of taste, AND they pack some really serious fiber and protein. Oh and a person final matter, they’re much less than 100 calories for each muffin!

I want to position out a couple of crucial ingredients in these attractive muffins:

  • Oat bran: I resolved that I required to develop a muffin without any flour and realized that oat bran would be a fantastic choice. I located some at Trader Joe’s close to the cereal part, and it’s now one of my favourite fake ‘flours’ to bake with. The nutritional information is also superb!
  • Protein powder: Of course, I employed protein powder in these muffins, but only a scoop! It truly gives the muffins a little taste boost and also supplemental protein. I inspire you to test it out, because I do consider you will really enjoy it. I made use of 100 calorie vanilla protein powder, and my nutritional details in the recipe reflects that.
  • Bananas + Applesauce: I used two Quite ripe bananas for flavor and a little bit of unsweetened applesauce in its place of oil. YUM.
  • Greek Yogurt: Sure, a lot more protein! I used nonfat greek yogurt for additional protein and to hold the muffins moist. I’m a substantial fan of Chobani, Liberte, and Fage brand names for my baking recipes.
