Banana Protein Muffins

I love making these on the weekends for the whole family to enjoy!! Give them a try.

2 1/4 cup plain oats
11 egg whites
1/2-cup fat free cottage cheese
4 TB cyto sport vanilla protein powder
1-1/2Medium bananas
1 cap full of vanilla
1/2 cap full of banana extract (optional)
1 ¼ tsp baking powder
1 TB cinnamon
4-5 full droppers vanilla stevia (or to taste)
SERVING SIZE TOTALS (Divide muffins by 7. This generally makes 2-3 muffins, depending on size of muffin tin)

BANANA: Tastes best if you use ripened banana. If you do not have a ripened banana, take ripe banana and mash up in bowl. Microwave 1 min. (This will release extra banana flavor).
OATS: Blend well creating oat flour.
SWEETENER: If you do not have vanilla stevia, you can use Splenda (1 1/2 cup baking Splenda).
Directions: Preheat oven to 375. Blend all dry ingredients together. Add in mashed banana, cottage cheese, and other wet ingredients using pulse option on blender. Blend approximately 1 min or to a thick batter. Pour in to well sprayed muffin tins. Bake 30-40 min or until edges of muffins are slightly crisped. Remove from oven, take knife and carefully cut around edges muffin tin to help remove when cooled. Recipe is designed for 7 days. (Ex if you got 14 muffins out of batter, you would have 2 muffins for your serving size).
TIPS: These are great to freeze and reheat in microwave or in frying pan sprayed with Pam, cut down the center. Also tastes great if consumed frozen. Finish this meal by adding sliced raw veggies such as cucumbers, celery, and bell peppers. This is a great meal to take on the road. Store muffins in fridge or freezer. These are a great way to get protein in to your kids without them knowing. You can even add shredded zucchini. As long as you have vanilla stevia, you can blend in anything. For children, add fat free cool whip, butter, and cinnamon on top!
