Banana and Granola Breakfast Muffins

Banana and Granola Breakfast Muffins

These muffins are a deliciously moist and satisfying treat. With the added protein from the Fava Mill granola they will keep you satisfied for longer. Fava Mill granolas are an excellent plant source of protein and fibre, as well as many vitamins and minerals. This makes them great for vegetarians and vegans who might sometimes struggle to get enough protein in their diet. As well as regular exercisers wanting to boost their protein intake.

Brand new to the UK, Fava Mill Granolas have considerably more protein per gram than a boiled egg and are low in salt but high in fibre. This makes my Banana and Fava Mill granola muffins a perfect breakfast, brunch, cheeky dessert or afternoon tea treat. Incredibly easy to make, you literally throw everything in a processor and whizz it all up! Give them a try. You won’t regret it.
