Tropical Protein Banana Muffins

Spring Clean the Kitchen: Cook with at least 3 ingredients that are actually in your refrigerator or pantry right now. Try not to go to the store to buy anything new. Give tips on how to make a healthy dish out of whatever you have on-hand.

This is week 12 of my 14 straight weeks of 70-80 hour work weeks and portable breakfasts have definitely been making my life easier! Lately, I’ve been talking with pretty much all my patients about how to prevent constipation–as such, this recipe has extra fiber in it (I threw in ground flaxseed–1 serving (2 tbsp) = 4g dietary fiber + 3g protein)!

I also haven’t done a giveaway in many moons, so that’s changing today! Find out how you can win your own flax oil + Forti-Flax below!

I used Barlean’s Forti-Flax, which includes omega-3’s, fiber, and lignans (antioxidant-rich phytonutrients)! It’s been delicious in my smoothies so I figured I’d try baking with it too. (Next up = salad/roasted veggie toppings!)

I’m all about kitchen cleanses and like to challenge myself in coming up with random concoctions using things I already have! It forces you to get creative and you also save some money + time in the process!

My best friend and first cooking buddy ever actually came up with this recipe, except with blueberries (these are our past creations!)–I just made some alterations based on what I already had hanging out in my apartment, so they became Tropical Protein Banana Muffins instead!

Prep: Cook: Yield: 12 muffins or 1 loafTotal:

A quick, easy-to-make and portable protein-packed snack!

You'll Need...

  • 4 overripe bananas, mashed
  • 5 scoops vanilla protein powder
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tsp almond extract
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 1/2 cups frozen strawberries/mangoes/pineapples
  • 5 eggs
  • 1 cup old-fashioned oats
  • 1/4 cup ground flaxseed


  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. Mash bananas first and add in protein powder. Mix thoroughly before adding any other ingredients to avoid clumping.
  3. Mix in all other ingredients.
  4. Distribute evenly into silicone baking cups or muffin tin.
  5. Bake at 350 for 20 minutes or until it passes the toothpick test.

Additional Notes

You can make this in loaf form too! Just bake for 40 minutes to 1 hour instead of for 20 minutes.
If the mixture seems very dry, you can add 1 cup milk of choice (e.g. unsweetened vanilla almond milk).

    O I’m liking the tropicallyiness!
    I always have a bag of flax seeds in the pantry..and when I came home for winter break a few months ago…I found that my bag of flax seeds (along with many other things) and torn and ripped open…from one of the little mice we get in our house during the winter 🙁 Sigh…

    The first thing that comes to mind are smoothies! Also no-bake energy bars! I’d add it to homemade “ice cream” treats made with banana, cashew butter, honey and other good ingredients like this!

    Thanks for sharing! I take fiber tablets every day, but it’s always nice to find actual FOOD that gives you a nice source of it.
