Protein Chocolate Banana Cupcakes with (optional) Peanut Butter Stuffing

I felt like a genuis when I made these. Not only are they PROTEIN muffins, but the extra stuffing… woooaaahhh. Also a great way to use up brown bananas! If you don’t want to add the peanut butter, they are amazing as they are (I made half a batch plain)… and you can always cut them in half and spread over some PB when you want to eat them! They make a great breakfast on the go, pre or post workout snack… or just a snack if you’re feeling peckish! Give them a go but be prepared to be blown away.

Serves: Approx 16 cakes
