The Clean Diet! Clean Banana Protein Muffins

I know this post is rather left field considering my occupation and trending history, but I fell that every post I’ve written seems to be advertising for my books and even I find that rather boring – so i can’t imagine what it’s been like for you! I therefore made the decision to change this trend - but deciding on what to write about has proven somewhat difficult. My procrastination came to a halt however, when yesterday a girlfriend asked how my diet was going?

 

Dork that I am, I grinned broadly as I stupidly jumped on the spot, telling her that the fat was just falling on me!

 

It's not a new craze, or anything that is overly difficult in truth – I’m just eating clean. What does that mean, you may ask? Well, I have joined the Ashy Bines Clean Eating Diet, and all it really means is - I eat natural food, nothing processed or artificial.

 

Sounds easy? Well, it is!

 

I will not go into details about the diet as there are a number of Clean Diets out there, but what i will say is it’s working for me.  I have become rather creative with the recipes and thought i would share one with you. It’s my very own Banana Muffins!

 

 

Ingredients:

250mls of mashed, ripe, banana

200mls of egg whites (the yoke is extra fat you just don’t need)

125mls of Greek Yogurt

2 Scoops of Vanilla Protein Powder

3/4cup of oats

1 tbsp of Navita (or sugar substitute)

1 tsp of baking powder

1 tsp of baking soda

½ tsp of cinnamon (or mixed spice, nutmeg etc depending on your preference)

 

Method:

Preheat oven to 180 degrees and prepare muffin tins with a little coconut oil to prevent sticking.

In a blender, place egg whites and blend until it goes frothy (about a min). Add banana and yogurt and blend again until mixed. Then add remaining ingredients and blend until well combined.

Pour into muffin tray.

Bake for 15-18 mins, depending on your oven, or until a stick comes out clean.

 

That’s it. Simple as can be and very yummy.

 

It is worth noting that the batter is very runny but once cooked it comes out lovely and light, providing you whisked/blended the egg whites at the start for long enough.

 

 

Enjoy!
