Banana Muffin Blondies

IMG_0068

A new week meant another opportunity to create my next macro-friendly protein treat, and this time I had a plethora of ripe bananas to work with. I desperately wanted to make some muffins, but soon realized we didn’t have any paper liners, so I went the next best route: blondies! This same recipe could be used to make muffins, but I feel these came out super moist & delicious this way too.

I had previously been sent a nice “care package” from FlapJacked that contained some of their Gluten-Free protein pancake & baking mix, so I decided to whip up another batch of goodies with this product. Honestly, I wasn’t sure how these were going to come out, and I was concerned I was going to be wasting some awesome ingredients on a test batch, but I couldn’t be more thrilled with the result.

As you can see from above, the volume and the thickness of the batter is pretty much comparable to any other muffin/cake batter using “traditional” ingredients. All you have to do is play around in the kitchen, and sometimes great things happen. Other times…well, we won’t talk about that ;-)!
