Ingredients

  • 1 2/3 cup oat bran
  • 1 scoop vanilla protein powder (about 1/4 cup)
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 small or medium very ripe bananas, mashed
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/2 cup nonfat plain greek yogurt
  • 2 large egg whites (or 1 egg)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Spray 12 cup muffin tin with nonstick cooking spray or grease well with coconut oil
  2. In a medium bowl whisk together oat bran, protein powder, baking powder and cinnamon; set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, mix mashed banana, applesauce, greek yogurt, egg whites, and vanilla together until well combined and smooth. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and mix until just combined. Let batter sit two minutes to thicken a bit.
