These muffins are a breakfast and snack staple – ideal to make over the weekend and enjoy during the weekdays when you are in a rush and in need of a well-balanced quick bite. I often throw them in my purse when running errands or have one right before a weight training session in the gym. The muffins have a good ratio of complex carbs, protein and good fats to sustain your energy levels for a while.
A pinch of salt
½ can of pumpkin puree
2 scoops of vanilla protein powder
3 medium-sized bananas with brown spots on them
1 cup of almond flour
½ cup of coconut flour
½ tbsp baking powder
½ tbsp baking soda
2 tbsp ground flax seed
2 tbsp hemp hearts
½ cup walnuts (pieces & halves)
¼ cup chocolate chips
¼ cup coconut oil + extra for greasing muffin tins or use coconut oil spray
½ cup nut milk, I use almond
Preheat oven to 350 F or 180 C.
In a large mixing bowl, using an electric mixer or a whisk, begin beating the egg at slow speed, gradually increasing the whisking speed. Add the pinch of salt and stir in pumpkin puree and protein powder.
Peel and mash the bananas with a fork in a separate bowl and add into the egg mixture.
In a separate bowl, combine the almond flour, coconut flour, baking powder and baking soda and then gradually add to the large mixing bowl stirring with the electric mixer/whisk.
Add all the nut and seeds – hemp hearts, flaxseeds, walnuts and the chocolate chips.
Finally, pour the coconut oil and the almond milk and stir well until mixed thoroughly.
Lightly grease the muffin tin with cooking coconut spray and spread out the mixture evenly. It should make 9-12 small muffins
Bake for 50 minutes on 350 F.
After muffins have cooled down, you can store in the fridge for up to a week.
The more brown spots the bananas you use have, the sweeter the muffins will be.
After the muffins have baked for 50 minutes, I usually turn off the oven and let them sit in it for another 10minutes.
