Ingredients

  • ½ cup butter or coconut oil
  • 20 dates 
  •  ½ cup milk
  • 2 large bananas
  • ¼ cup brown sugar, lightly packed
  • 1 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 4 scoops (3/4 cup) Naked Nutrition Whey Protein 
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup oat flour *see note

Frosting (optional)

  • 3/4 cup smooth peanut butter
  • 3/4 cup plain Greek or Skyr yogurt *see note

Instructions

  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. In a large glass mixing bowl, place the butter or coconut oil, dates, and milk.
  3. Microwave for 2 minute intervals, mashing with a fork in between, until the dates turn into a paste.
  4. Mash in the bananas.
  5. Stir in the brown sugar, cocoa powder, Naked Whey whey protein isolate, eggs, and oat flour.
  6. Lightly grease a mini muffin tin.
  7. Fill the tin with batter by scooping with a large spoon and scraping it out with another.
  8. Bake for 12 minutes.
  9. Allow to cool for at least 5 minutes before removing from tin.
  10. Whip together the frosting (if using) and spread on top once completely cool. If you’re planning on piping the frosting on with a decorating bag, plan to double the frosting amount.
  11. Store in the fridge. Will keep for up to one week.

Notes

*If you don’t have pre-milled oat flour you can pulse rolled oats in your blender until you achieve a flour-like consistency.

*A thick yogurt is necessary to get the right consistency for this frosting
