Okay I'm super excited about these!!! Lemmie tell you how these came about... I make my husband his protein and nutrient packed Shakeology shakes almost daily, but sometimes I'm just kinda lazy and want to mix it up a little bit! That's where this recipe comes in! Thanks to good ol' google I was able to find a delicious Banana Muffin recipe using Vanilla Shakeology by Adventures of a Shrinking Princess!!! Now if you want to mix up the flavors, you could totally make these with different flavor profiles, I just made hubby's with vanilla because vanilla is his favorite... BUT depending on what you're in the mood for, you can totally mix it up! Here are some ideas:
- Strawberry Banana Muffins using Strawberry Shakeology
- Banana Coffee Cake Muffins using Cafe Latte Shakeology
- Chocolate Banana Muffins using Chocolate Shakeology
Don't ALL of those options just sound freaking delicious?? I would NOT use the vegan versions of Shakeology for this recipe, and if you don't have Shakeology, then not only are you missing out, but I can also help you get some with a 25% discount! If you want these like RIGHT NOW and have another whey protein on hand then you could sub that for the Shakeology also, although I must admit you'll be missing out on a TON of essential superfood nutrients that are in Shakeology and not in other whey protein shakes. Because Shakeology isn't a protein shake, it's a superfood nutritional shake!
JUSSSSS SAYIN YA'LL!
Okay now moving on... You could also mix in some yummies to crank this recipe up a notch like:
- Enjoy Life Chocolate Chips
- Nuts - walnuts, pecans, etc.
- Coconut Flakes
- Rasins, dates, or other dried fruit
Delish right? The possibilities are endless depending on what you're craving! I wasn't able to try these today because they're totally too high in carbs for my bikini prep macros today PLUS I made them for my husband... But alas they got rave reviews!! He freaking LOVED THEM! One note, I did sub gluten free oats for the quick oats and it worked just fine!
Hubs is not Paleo or healthy or anything so that gives you a good idea of where his taste buds are and just how delicious these bad boys really were! Now, on to the recipe!
