Blueberry protein muffins 

  
This was a bit of an experiment but it was a great success!!!

Makes 12 muffins. 

Ingredients:

3 very ripe bananas 

6 medjool dates (pitted)

2 scoops vanilla protein powder (Vega or Garden of Life or your favorite brand of vegan protein powder) 

2 flax “eggs” (1/4-1/3 cup boiling water & 2 T of ground flaxseed…let sit and then whisk to eggy consistency) 

1 tsp cinnamon 

2.5 cups oats

1 cup flour (I used a combo of almond and buckwheat) 

3/4 cup chopped walnuts, divided

1 pint blueberries, rinsed 

Method:

Preheat oven to 325°. In a food processor, combine bananas, pitted dates, protein powder, cinnamon and flax eggs. Process until blended. Next, pulse in the oats just until combined. Then, pour mixture into a mixing bowl and stir in the flour and 1/2 cup of the chopped walnuts. Fold in the blueberries. Use 1/3 cup measure to scoop into 2 non-stick muffin tins (or greased sticky ones) (12 muffins total), scraping the sides with a spatula to move the muffin to the center (it will be easier to scrape out). Finally, sprinkle the muffins with the remaining 1/4 cup of walnuts and bake for about 25 minutes. Enjoy!!!
