Recipe Collab: Vegan Banana Walnut Protein Muffins

Got a couple of brown speckled bananas on the counter? Put them to good use with this easy, nutritious recipe featuring Toasted Quinoa Flakes and a few items from our friends at Garden of Life. The natural sweetness of the bananas plus a touch of Stevia in the protein powder means no sweeteners are necessary. This recipe makes about 9 muffins, and each one contains 4-5 g protein.
