These berry protein muffins have been our go-to lately, as you can make them ahead of time, then grab-and-go on your way out the door (or straight from the kitchen #workfromhome). We’re all about having some extra time in the morning to prepare for the day ahead!
- 2 ripe bananas mashed
- 1 egg large
- 1/2 cup Greek Yogurt plain & 0%
- 1/4 cup almond milk unsweetened & vanilla (plain)

- 1/8 tsp salt
- 1 cup fresh berries of your choice - sliced if needed
- Coconut oil
Preheat oven to 350º F, spray regular size 12 muffin baking pan with coconut oil and dust with flour.
In a medium bowl mash 2 bananas with a fork until smooth. Add egg, Greek yogurt, almond milk and vanilla extract. Mix with a fork until smooth and all wet ingredients are combined.
In another medium bowl add whole wheat flour, protein powder, flax seeds, baking powder and salt. Mix to combine all ingredients.
Add dry ingredients to the bowl with wet ingredients and mix just enough to combine and do not overmix. Fold berries into the dough.
Using a 1/4 cup measuring spoon distribute the batter evenly among the 12 muffin forms. Bake for 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. Cool before serving. Enjoy!
