2. Banana Blueberry Explosion Protein Muffins

By Jonathan Jordan


  • 3 ripe bananas (the darker, the better)
  • 6 eggs or 1.25 cups of egg whites
  • 1/3 cup coconut flour
  • 6 scoops of protein powder
  • 0.25 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1 tbs of All Spice or Trader Joe’s Pumpkin Pie Spice or 1 tbs of Cinnamon with 1 tbs Nutmeg


  1. Mix in a big bowl.
  2. Spray a non-stick muffin tray and fill each cup 3/4 full with the batter. Top with EXACTLY five blueberries in a star pattern (trust me, this is optimal so each bit gets a blueberry blast). Or if that’s too fancy you can just mix 1 cup of blueberries into the batter. You can also play around with other berries. I’ve used chopped strawberries and blackberries too. But blueberries remain my fave. 
  3. Bake at 375 degrees for 28-30 minutes. 
  4. Let cool and place in a container in the fridge for the week. They will last all week. If you need them last longer, they also freeze nicely, Make sure to eat them so you get a blueberry with each amazing bite.
