Protein Packed Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

So I’m a bit of a snack queen. Food in general is always the key to making me happy, so snacking is the way to continually ensure I don’t enter the realm of hanger. Cue one of my favourite snacks that is actually a treat: protein packed banana chocolate chip muffins!

These muffins are a staple in our baking, of which we get orders of constantly. They’re super simple (especially with the baking mix) to put together and the best part is that they freeze really well (up to 6 weeks). Thus they are the perfect pick-me-Up or throw-in-your-work-bag kind of snack that will satisfy, anytime. I may have eaten these for breakfast and dessert after dinner on the same day. They’re just SO moist and flavourful.

A pro baking tip for banana muffins is using previously frozen bananas. Smoothie bananas provide extra moisture and banana flavour to your muffins, which is essential to making gluten free banana bread taste moist and soft! Bananas also a great egg replacement.
