Banana & Cherry Protein Muffins

I’ve been perusing the internet recently looking for recipes that can still taste amazing, but not be as bad for you as their usual counterparts.  I stumbled across a recipe for oatbran muffins that intrigued me.  I was on Dukan for a while & oatbran was a staple food, but the recipes for cooking with it were heinous.  Anyhoo, Sunday = Extreme rest day so I baked.

The original recipe is from Ambitious Kitchen, I didn’t add applesauce & used whole eggs instead of the whites only.  Here is my version:

  • 1 2/3 cup oat bran
  • 1 scoop vanilla protein powder
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 small or medium very ripe bananas, mashed
  • 1/2 cup plain greek yoghurt
  • 2 medium eggs
  • ground vanilla pods
  • tablespoon of agave
  • 1 bag of dried, pitted cherries

I put it all in one bowl & mixed it together, I prefer paper cases to their silicone friends, so opted for those too.  Oven went on 200 degrees & the muffins were baked for around 18 minutes, tada!

They’re a lot more moist than I was expecting – as I mentioned earlier I’ve trialled Oatbran before & it wasn’t overly appetising…..more like eating little bits of grit.  I’ll have to remember this one & make them again some time!
