Quinoa Puffed Banana Protein Muffins

This recipe is SUPER simple to make. These are ingredients I have in my pantry, I didn’t need to go shopping for anything! Feel free to switch up the pea protein for your own protein powder, as well as swapping out the cashew butter for your desired nut butter.

I added the quinoa, protein powder, egg and chia seeds for a boost of protein. I incorporated the nut butter for some healthy fats, which also come from the chia seeds.
