Baby Booster Protein Muffins

This blog has been compensated by Baby Booster. I also received these products in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.

Now that I’ve got one more monkey in my circus, I’m all about ease when it comes to our food. I’ve cut out a lot of foods that include dairy, and I’ve been focusing on eating healthy fuels that keep me feeling full longer. This goes hand in hand with Baby Booster protein that I’ve posted about numerous times. The protein formula DOES NOT include soy, preservative, artificial sweeteners, or gluten. The high protein to low carbohydrate ratio also makes it a perfect choice for anyone looking to follow a healthy lifestyle. What more can you ask for? OH YES, the flavors! Normally, I am not a fan of protein shakes but the flavors that this company came up with are ah-mazing and I love drinking them!

When you’re breastfeeding, it’s so important to eat enough and make sure that you’re getting enough protein because that’s what stimulates milk production. Instead of searching for protein-rich foods or spending my precious time prepping protein-rich snacks, I just grab my Baby Booster protein because it has 20g of non-GMO protein in every serving! I add it to smoothies, pancakes, and even Popsicles.

Recently, Nolan started kindergarten, and with a newborn and a two-year-old to get up so we can get him to school, mornings around here get kind of hectic. This led me to making protein muffins with Baby Booster protein the night before so I can grab and go. Our kids have always loved muffins, they think they are eating a special treat because in their mind they are cupcakes, ha! Getting us all fed, as easily as possible is such a big stress reliever.

These muffins are delicious and you can switch up the taste by changing the protein powder you use… I used chocolate and vanilla but you can  change it up depending on your food feels for the day! Check out this easy recipe and try them for yourself.

1 large ripe banana
¾ cup of egg whites
¾ cup of coconut flour
½ cup plain Greek yogurt
1 and 1/2 scoops of Baby Booster vanilla or chocolate protein powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
½ tsp cinnamon
Optional: walnuts, chocolate chips, etc.

1. Preheat the oven to 350.
2. Add all the ingredient to a food processor and blend until smooth.
3. Wipe muffin tin cups down with coconut oil
4. Scoop about ⅓ cup of batter into each muffin tin.
( I made 15 muffins which is an awkward amount of muffins to make so if you prefer, you can make them a bit larger and just make a dozen. That’ll only add about 10 calories to each muffin, so no big deal.)
5. Bake for 11-13 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Mine took 12 minutes exactly.
