One of my favorite muffin flavors is poppy seed! I decided to turn that delicious flavor of muffin into a healthy option! These muffins are made with whole wheat flour, mashed bananas, cinnamon, and poppy seeds. Plus, you can add additional protein powder to give it an extra boost! Make it with me!
These muffins are healthy and delicious! Plus, they are super easy to make. All the ingredients in this recipe are made with nutritional ingredients that make the muffins super flavorful and extra yummy!
For this recipe, I used whole wheat flour. You can use any flour alternative that you have on hand! Coconut flour, almond flour, or even regular all purpose flour will do. Same goes for the coconut sugar. You can also substitute splenda, honey, or sugar in the raw.
Adding bananas to this recipe give the muffins extra moisture! The banana flavor is not super strong.
