High Protein Banana Oat Muffins

Quick & Easy Recipe

Lean Protein/ Healthy Carbs

Lots of protein comes from the eggs, Greek yogurt, oats and the poppy or chia seeds. Chia and Poppy Seeds have a very similar amount of protein. So no matter which one you choose, you get healthy unsaturated fatty acids and vitamins out of them.

Carbohydrates, which you need for your fueling, come out of the oats, the brown sugar and the naturally occurring sugars in the yogurt.

Add Your Choice of Seeds or Nuts

Pre- and Post-Workout

Generally a perfect post-workout snack, but can also be enjoyed pre-workout. The fat content is pretty low since there is no extra oil or fat included. The only ingredients having fats are the low-fat yogurt and the seeds. So you should not upset your stomach if you eat one before you ride your bike or go for a run!
