Chocolate Chip Muffins

Well, if you haven’t figured out already, I like to make something to satisfy my sweet tooth each week. I typically plan out my meals Monday-Friday ahead of time to help make my grocery list and meal prep. I typically plan for 3-4 meals and 1-2 snacks. Some of the snacks I always have on hand, such as protein bars, some fruits, or nuts. This week I decided to make some muffins with my brown bananas! I love me some chocolate, and peanut butter, so why not make some protein, chocolate chip and peanut butter muffins!

I decided to be a little ambitious and utilize the apple cider vinegar I purchased, but keep finding excuses not to choke down. The best part is you can’t even taste it in these delicious muffins!!! I also used half the “dark” chocolate chips I typically use when I bake, and half cocoa nibs. I’m doing my best to keep it simple, keep it delicious, and keep it healthy! 😉

Sometimes you just want a cookie but you don’t want to negate all the hard work you’ve put in at the gym. Well, I have a nice fix for that: Healthy PB Protein cookies!

They look pretty, they taste great, they are macro/diet/health friendly, and they are easy to make!!

The idea came to be when I saw that Pescience made a new protein flavor: Peanut butter! If you were to see the 4 jars of different nut butters in my fridge, and the 2 in my pantry, you would probably notice that I LOVE NUT BUTTERS! I also love cookies, so bam. Not to mention the two brown bananas that were sitting on my counter…. lightbulb!

Ingredients:
2 scoops Pescience Protein Powder: Peanut Butter
1/3 cup Almond Meal
4 tbsp PB Fit (any powedered Peanut butter)
2/3 cup Oatmeal
2 brown bananas
1 tsp vanilla
1 egg
2 tbsp Flax seed
1 tsp Baking Powder

Optional: Chocolate Chips, Walnuts, etc.

What you do:
1. Preheat oven to 350
2. Mash the bananas into a bowl until no chunks remain
3. Add in all other ingredients and mix together.
4. Fold in optional ingredients (I used walnuts and chocolate chips)
5. Place on baking sheet and bake 8-10 minutes!

Enjoy!!
