Strawberry & Banana Muffins
Think banana bread, only better! Like if you glazed your banana bread with strawberry jam and it was still good for you. I am going to top one of these with some honey greek yogurt because I bet it would be heavenly :)
1 cup strawberries
1 scoop protein mix (I used strawberry, banana, vanilla, but any flavor you have works. Chocolate would be great with these) I got my mix from YouBar!
1 cup oats
1/2 cup almonds
1/2 cup milled flax seed
1/2 cup pastry flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup honey
1/4 cup oil
Heat oven to 350 F and line muffin tins with paper cups.
Mix dry ingredients in your food processor. Pour into a large bowl.
Mix wet ingredients (minus the strawberry jam) in the food processor and pour into your dry ingredients.
Mix well and fill muffin cups 3/4 full.
Bake at 350 F for 15 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
Heat about 1/2 cup strawberry jam in the microwave so it spreads easier. Use a pastry brush to glaze the tops of your muffins with the strawberry jam.
