Banana Greek Yogurt Protein Muffins Recipe
We are nearing the end of our Cooking With Kids A-Z series! I can't believe that my daughter and I have cooked our way through the alphabet for the past year. She loves cooking with me and I love the bonding time, so it's been a fun year of creating new recipes together. We're up to Y for Yogurt and have come up with a Banana Greek Yogurt Protein Muffin Recipe that my kids are gobbling up. It's a breakfast, snack, and lunchbox addition that is filling and moist. You won't believe how healthy this muffin recipe is!
Besides the sugar in the yogurt and the natural sugar in milk and applesauce, there is no added sugar. (OK, I take that back. I totally sprinkled brown sugar on the top of the muffin. But, your getting such a small amount, and I mean, what is a muffin without crunchy brown sugar??) BUT, you can leave the brown sugar topping off and just add the oats.

To make the muffins, mash together the bananas and the Greek yogurt with a fork. Pour the mixture into a mixing bowl. Add in the wet ingredients: egg, peanut butter, milk, and apple sauce. Mix to combine.
In a separate bowl, combine the dry ingredients: flour, rolled oats, baking powder, and ground flaxseed meal .
Stir the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients. Mix until combined.
Scoop the batter into a lined muffin tin . Combine the rolled oats and dark brown sugar to create a crumbly topping. Sprinkle this on top of the uncooked muffins.
Place the muffins into the oven and bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 20 minutes. Immediately take the muffins from the tin and let them cool on a cooking rack .
Enjoy a healthy banana Greek yogurt muffin with assurance of a healthy snack!
