So as some of you will know from my last post I am lucky enough to now be sponsored by Multipower. As part of this, I’ll be writing them a healthy recipe every month incorporating protein… and here, I’m proud to present no.1 !
We’re constantly being told we can’t have our cake and eat it, right?
Health and fitness is a journey we should enjoy, so what better excuse to dig our your blender than a sweet treat recipe packed with good stuff? (Yup, even one of your five a day).
These delicious banana protein cupcakes with dark chocolate chips are perfect for a pre or post workout snack, and take all of 25-30 minutes to make. So what are you waiting for? Get weighing, baking and (the best part) eating!
Ingredients (makes 3/4 cupcakes):
1 x large ripe banana
2 x tbsp coconut flour
1/2 tbsp baking powder
1/2 scoop of Multipower french vanilla protein
3 x tsp peanut butter
1 x tsp coconut oil
1 x whole egg
Handful of dark chocolate chips for baking
Method (25 minutes – 5 minutes prep and 20 minutes bake time):
Mix all the ingredients except the dark chocolate chips in a blender until they form a smooth batter. Then add in the dark chocolate chips and pour evenly into cupcake cases in a baking tray.
Bake at 170 degrees for 20/30 minutes until the mixture has risen and is golden.
Then leave to cool, and enjoy!
Top tip: If a cupcake isn’t enough to keep you satisfied, pour the mixture into a deeper set muffin tray for a quick, easy breakfast on the go!
Until next time,
