Ingredients

  • 1 tsp Coconut Oil
  • 2 1/2 cups Baby Spinach
  • 2 Banana ripe
  • 1/2 cup Vanilla Protein Powder
  • 2 tbsp Pitted Dates
  • 3/4 cup Unsweetened Almond Milk
  • 2 Egg
  • 2 cups Oats rolled
  • 1 tbsp Baking Powder

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 350F and line a muffin tin with liners. Brush the liners with coconut oil or use silicone cups to prevent the muffins from sticking.
  • In your blender, combine the baby spinach, bananas, protein powder, dates, and milk. Blend until smooth, then add the eggs, oats, and baking powder. Blend again until a batter is formed. 
  • Scoop the muffin batter into cups. Bake for 18 to 20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the middle of a muffin comes out clean. 
  • Let cool and enjoy!

Health Facts
Oats may promote the release of a hormone deriving from the small intestine called Peptide YY. This hormone is known to reduce appetite and may be beneficial for those looking to reduce their calorie intake! Fun fact: This particular hormone tends to be found at its highest levels 2 hours after eating!
