Oh boy did I have the itch to create something today. As always, I know that my recipe creations are either a hit or just kinda blah. Today's was oh so good! James actually gave me a kiss after he tasted it. I guess thats his seal of approval. Ha! But this creation is flourless, has a good source of protein, dairy free (besides egg) and of course GLUTEN FREE. It is a must try! Perfect for desert (which we just had) or for a quick breaky!
Chocolate Orange Banana Muffins (with protein)
Makes 6 Muffins
3 tbsp cocoa
1 serving (2 scoops) chocolate fudge whey protein
1/2 tsp cream of tartar
1 stevia extract
whip all these ingredients together until smooth (beater works best). Then fill 2/3 cup of a coated muffin pan with batter.
1 small banana (mashed)
1 tbsp orange jam
1 tbsp agave nectar
1 tbsp sun nut butter or almond butter
Mix all together until you get a chunky consistency (due to the banana)
Then spoon filling into the muffins pans until mix rises 3/4 way. You will see the filling on top. Bake at 350F for 16-18 minutes or until they rise. Let them sit in oven (on off) for an extra 10 minutes to cool.
