I am SO RIDICULOUSLY EXCITED to share this recipe with you guys!!! So ridiculously excited.
And, yes… this is one of those times where caps and multiple exclamation points are 100% necessary. As is spellcheck, apparently, since I can’t seem to spell ‘necessary’ when I get really excited. Nailed it that second time, though… aaaaaaand then managed to misspell ‘second’ in a way that made spellcheck think I meant ‘seance.’ Oops. Fingers not keeping up to brain.
Anyways! I’m rambling… which is kind of what happens when I get excited. Or nervous. Or hyper. Or tired. Or… any emotion that sits at either end of the spectrum.
But today? Today we’re excited. And also slightly hyper, so bear with us.
What can I say? You guys know I love my sweets, and these muffins are healthy enough to eat as part of a meal if you so desire. Not only are they super scrumptious, the ingredients are 👍🏻.
A few key ingredients in these lovely Flourless Strawberry Banana Oat Protein Muffins:
- Oats: Like a lot of my muffins, these are made with oats instead of regular flour. I love what a hearty muffin oats make and that they’re easy to make gluten-free.
- Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides: Collagen gives these muffins a great protein boost. It’s a great supplement to take for your overall health, but it is really great for supporting skin and joint health. I really do think my skin is healthier because of the collagen supplement I’ve been taking for almost a year now. I encourage you to try it out, because I know you’ll love the benefits too!
- Bananas: I used one VERY ripe banana for flavor and as a substitute for oil. YUM.
- Greek Yogurt: Yes, more protein! I used light vanilla greek yogurt for additional protein and to keep the muffins moist. If you’re dairy-free, use a coconut milk or almond milk yogurt.
I’ve been enjoying the flavorless Collagen Peptides in my coffee, yogurt and smoothies for over a year. But I had never tried baking with it. Well, as you probably guessed, it worked like a charm!
Collagen Peptides are the new “it” superfood in my opinion. They help promote youthful skin, healthier hair and strong nails (yes, please). They also help keep your bones healthy and strong and support joint health. Collagen Peptides even help contribute to a balanced diet and happen to be Whole30 approved and nonGMO verified!

Okay enough talking; time for you to get these beauties baking!!
Delicious, low calorie and protein-packed... what's there not to love?!
- 1 cup egg whites from a carton
- 1 1/2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
- 3 packets stevia (optional)
- 1/2 cup low calorie Greek yogurt (I used vanilla flavor)
- 1 ripe banana
- 3 scoops Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 cup chopped fresh strawberries
Blend all ingredients except the strawberries in a blender. Stir in 3/4ths of the strawberries and pour batter into well greased muffin tins. Top muffins with the additional chopped strawberries. Bake at 350 degrees for approx 20 minutes.
I store these in a large baggie in the fridge or freezer. To reheat, I turn the oven to high broil, slice, place on baking sheet and spray I Can't Believe It's Not Butter on each half. Broil for just a couple of minutes. The outer edges become slightly crisp with a tender center - so good! They also work well reheated in the microwave.
