Banana Chocolate Chip Protein Muffins

I’m always looking for tasty, healthy, and filling breakfasts, but many things fall short. Granola bars or protein bars are always more Weight Watchers points than I want them to be, and they don’t keep me full. Eggs and nuts are great, but don’t satisfy my morning sweet tooth. That’s why when I made these Banana Chocolate Chip Protein Muffins using Kodiak Cakes Buttermilk Pancake Mix, I was so pleasantly surprised with how delicious they were for only 4 Weight Watchers Freestyle Smartpoints!

Ingredients

2 cups Kodiak Cakes Protein Pancake Power Mix – Buttermilk

2 very ripe bananas

1 egg

1 cup plain almond milk

1/4 cup maple syrup

1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

1 tsp vanilla extract

1 tsp salt

(not pictured: salt)

Directions

  1. Measure 2 cups of the Kodiak Cakes Protein Pancake Power Mix – Buttermilk into a large mixing bowl. Add in the salt.
  2. In a separate mixing bowl, mash up two overripe bananas. Mix in the egg, almond milk, vanilla extract, and maple syrup. Mix well to combine. (Add a little extra maple syrup for more sweetness).
  3. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and combine. Fold in chocolate chips, saving some to sprinkle on the top of each muffin.
  4. Grease a muffin tin with butter or nonstick spray. Pour batter in, filling each muffin area 3/4 of the way up. Sprinkle the tops with some chocolate chips.
  5. Bake at 350 degrees F for 22-26 minutes. Use the toothpick test to make sure muffins are fully cooked through.
  6. Let cool for 5 minutes in muffin tin. Then, transfer to a wire cooling rack. Wrap individually to eat the next day!
