Banana Strawberry Protein Muffins

Through my ambassadorship with Fit Approach, I was given the opportunity to review Bob's Red Mill new line of Protein Powders. This post was sponsored by Bob's Red Mill and Fit Approach. As always opinions 100% my own.


While I love a sweet treat I eat to fuel my body 99% of the time. With that said I basically make everything from scratch so I know what's in it. You name it I've either made it or have thought about making it. ;) 

Recently Bob's Red Mill sent yours truly some samples of their new protein powders. I know more protein! I'm drowning in protein powder over here. Typically I throw a scoop of protein in my smoothies, but I wanted to try something new. Since Bob's Red Mill is known for their flours, grains, etc. I figured why not bake with it! What?! Crazy town, right?

I have a confession, I've never baked with protein powder until now! Honestly, I'm not sure why it took so long. Either way these muffins are packed with protein and only 100 calories! WHAT?! I know crazy right.


If you follow me on Snapchat [tiarawasner] then you might have seen the awesome care package Bob's Red Mill sent over a few weeks ago.

For this particular recipe I used Bob's Red Mill Protein & Fiber Nutritional Booster. This unique blend is made from pea protein powder, chicory root fiber, psyllium husk powder, chia seeds and beneficial probiotics.
