BANANA PROTEIN MUFFINS

A muffin for breakfast or a snack can be a tasty treat, but even better when it is a balanced treat. These muffins are made with both Greek yogurt and more egg whites than the average muffin, to help you meet your protein needs, with 5 grams of protein per muffin. They will satisfy your sweet tooth, and provide fiber, potassium, vitamins, and other nutrients, helping keep you satisfied for longer between meals or snacks.
