I have been sending Jason to work with snacks for those times when he doesn’t get out for a lunch break in decent time. Almonds, protein bars, and he has a newfound favorite, the Larabar!
Yesterday I made him some muffins with staying power and flavor. Jason actually said they were perfect! You can expect to see many variations of the protein muffin in the near future – when I get a compliment like that I go with it!
The protein and egg give these a dense texture I was looking for, and the sweetness comes from the banana and applesauce, and another banana I had to use up.
Grab your favorite protein powder and make these!
