Good morning and happy Monday to you!


Quinn and I did a little baking over the weekend because we had some ripe bananas that needed to be used sooner than later.

I was craving a good muffin, so what to bake was an easy decision. And I amped up the staying power with SFH protein powder, Greek yogurt, and eggs. The end result was a banana muffin that I plan to make again and again!

They were also a HUGE hit with both Mal and Quinn. (I’m sure Murphy would have liked them too.) In fact, a little someone (in Batman rain boots no less) snagged one during the photo shoot and went right in for a big bite.


Mmm! Banana muffin success!

  1. My 22 month old loves bananas. Can Quinn say banana yet? My son can’t but knows when I say the word because he gets excited.

  2. I’ve never heard of that flour, but want to check it out! I’ve been loving coconut, almond and oat flours lately, they add great flavor and texture.

  3. I’ve never heard of green banana flour! That is so awesome! One of my favorites to bake with is almond flour. I love the texture and flavor that comes from it. Love this recipe as well, as I have two ripe bananas sitting in my fridge.

  4. Almond is my favorite, but I’m always looking for recipes that use a gluten free flour (other than oats) and protein powder. Def gonna try this.
