Banana Almond Protein Muffins


Protein pancakes are amazing but protein muffins are a little better! I will literally make my own recipe up and my husband is always thrilled to be my guinea pig!

Meal prepping is probably one of the hardest things I have had to do. Not when it comes to lunch but definitely when it comes to breakfast. I always say the only way you will not get bored with healthy lifestyle is if you try new things. I don’t always want the same baked chicken with veggies for lunch and thats when Pinterest can be your biggest support system.


I came across this gem at my favorite store Target in the Pancake/ Breakfast food section. I never heard of Kodiak cakes but considering they were almost sold out, well I was sold on trying it.  I love how this mix can be used for so many different ways when it comes to food.kodiak-banana-cakes

I decided to make my own recipe for my meal prep and make muffins. 2 cups of the mix, 1 cup of water, 2 mashed up bananas, almonds, brown sugar, honey and a little vanilla extract made for a great breakfast. The kids and my husband were fighting over these because they only received 5 muffins to split because this mama had to take them for breakfast.

This is my first time using protein pancake mix and I am a big fan. I was always a Bisquick type of girl and grow up on that, which now my kids love this, after trying Kodiak Cakes I wont buy another brand. There are so many protein products that taste like protein but I forgot I was actually eating something healthy because it taste better than ihop pancakes. The best part is you can add anything to your protein muffins like more protein!
