High Protein Choc Chip Banana Muffin

sugar free banana muffin

Hi everyone,

I decided to get my bake on and concoct some super moist yet fluffy high protein choc chip banana muffins!

I managed to randomly make them fit with the following nutritional criteria:

  • No added sugar
  • Gluten free
  • Grain free
  • Low glycemic index
  • Antioxidant rich
  • Prebiotic fibre rich

So I bring to you, Travelling Dietitians High Protein Choc Chip Banana Muffins

2 ripe bananas, mashed

1/4 cup milk (I used full cream, but you could probably switch for coconut milk if wanting a dairy free option)

2 tbsp melted Isowhey coconut oil

1 egg (you could try replace this with a chia egg if wanting to remove the egg)



30g scoop MRM vanilla plant based protein powder (contains an antioxidant rich mix inside it)

1/4 cup Vitafiber prebiotic powdered sweetener from Bioneutra (Aussies – until this product is available to be shipped to Australia I would substitute this for a granulated sweetener such as xylitol, erythritol/stevia mix or monk fruit extract)

1/4 cup Jimmy Blacks black bean powder

1/4 cup coconut flour

1 heaped teaspoon herbies spices cinnamon

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp baking powder
