  • 3 ripe bananas, mashed
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/4 cup oil of choice (avocado, canola, coconut, etc)
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1 1/4 cup flour (ideally whole wheat, but all-purpose flour works too)
  • 1/2 cup vanilla protein powder (I used whey)
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/3 cup dark chocolate chips


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 12-count muffin tin.
  • In a large bowl, combine the bananas, cinnamon, vanilla, oil, egg, and brown sugar. Mix well.
  • Add the flour, protein powder, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Stir the ingredients until just combined.
  • Add the milk and mix until everything is combined. Fold in the chocolate chips.
  • Pour the batter evenly into each spot in the muffin tin, filling almost completely. Bake for approximately 20 minutes, or until muffins are golden brown on top and a knife pulls out clean. Let cool for a few minutes in the pan, then remove from the pan and allow to finish cooling. Enjoy.


Notes:  For best results, spoon the flour into your measuring cup. If you scoop it in, sometimes it can be a bit denser – if that’s the case and your batter is too thick, just add a little more milk.
