This evening I was craving a cupcake, like badly, and the only thing I could think to do is put something together that tasted like a cupcake but had protein and little to no sweeteners. I grabbed some items I had in the house and made a banana, vanilla and peanut butter muffin mix then baked them in the oven. They came out great and could even benefit from a cottage cheese frosting too since these are not as moist as a normal cupcake or muffin. If you’re looking for a high protein snack without ruining your diet then try these on for size.

I only used 1 banana but make sure it looks like this and is a bit mushy so you can blend it up nicely. I also used about 2tbsp of cinnamon to the mix.

This is what it all looks like in the tin bowl before mixing with a whisk.

The mix will look a bit watery but trust me it won’t be watery when baked. Use a ladle and then fill each tin for the muffins up to about 3/4 of the way to leave room for rising.
