How to Store & Reheat your Sugar Free Banana Muffins.
To store:Allow the muffins cool completely, then place them in a container or freezer-safe food bag. Reusable freezer bags like these are perfect! They also have a range of sustainable food bags.
To Freeze: These muffins are freezer-friendly and can hang out in your freezer (-18C) with your mixed veggies and ice cream for up to 3 months. But we all know that they’re not going to last that long 😉
To Reheat: Thaw them out to room temperature before eating or microwave for 30 seconds or until the muffins are warm to the touch and no longer frozen.
What else can you add to these muffins for that extra bit of WOW!
Berries- Berries will not only add a burst of flavour, but you will also be adding a healthy hit of antioxidants Blueberries, Raspberries, blackberries...etc. Why not mixed berries!
Peanut Butter - Another flavour combo you can’t deny! Simply dollop a teaspoon of your favourite peanut butter into the middle of each muffin before baking.
Choc chips - Choc chips just make everything better! Throw ½ a cup of our premium choc chips into the batter or if you want to drop a little sugar we have our 98% sugar free choc chips for you to add in.
Coffee - Ok, hear me out... Adding 1-2 TB of instant coffee into the batter will give you some extra pep, and the slight bitterness of the coffee with the sweet taste of the muffins works so well, and for an even better combo - Coffee and Walnut Banana Muffins for the ultimate breakfast muffin!!
Yoghurt: Add a dollop of your favourite protein rich yoghurt on top or perhaps some sweetened ricotta 🤤
Butter: Let’s keep things simple, cut in half and spread a little butter on each half of your warm muffin and let that just get all melty and delicious… sometimes simple tastes like this are truly the best!!
Frequently Asked Questions:
Is Protein Banana Bread safe if I’m pregnant or breastfeeding?
We use a nutritious blend of natural and organic ingredients, and our plant protein is a pure Australian faba protein with nothing added. If you have particular dietary needs or conditions we always recommend checking with your trusted medical advisor.
What is Faba Protein?
Faba protein is the new kid on the block when it comes to plant proteins, and even better, ours is sourced from VIC, Australia!
This original protein is Australia's first Plant Protein and the cleanest on the market. As well as being Australian, this new Faba Protein has a smooth and creamy texture with no grittiness in sight that comes from other plant proteins! We think that’s a triple win!
Can I use coconut oil in place of olive oil?
Coconut oil becomes firm when refrigerated. If you do use this oil, please let your banana muffin come back to room temperature before eating, or pop in the microwave for 30 seconds.
What sort of olive oil do you use?
We recommend a mild/ light olive oil, as it has a milder flavour. Save that flavoursome cold-pressed olive oil for your delicious salads.
Can I use butter instead of oil?
Oil is what helps these muffins become moist and fluffy. Butter will turn them into firm muffins once they are refrigerated, so it won’t be the best banana muffin experience of your life….and we wouldn’t want that!
A little note about this recipe:
This recipe cannot be made using our vegan egg replacer or collagen. It’s full of protein as is and these two things really don’t make the best tasting Protein Banana Muffins and we only want you to experience the best!
