There is one main question that every vegan on the planet has been asked at least 1,000 times. “Where do you get your protein?”

After a standard eye-roll, I generally spout off a list that includes…Vegetables, Soy, Nuts, Non-Dairy Milk, Beans, Quinoa, Tofu, Lentils, Oats, etc. etc.

I decided to give an extra boost of protein to these Oat Banana Muffins by adding 1/4 cup of vegan Now Sports Pea Protein purchased here. They are not too sweet and contain ZERO white sugar.

Families with children can find a plant-based dieting a bit of a challenge from the beginning. It definitely takes a bit more work and planning but the outcome is healthier, for them and the planet.

These bars are loosely based on ones I came across on OneGreenPlanet. I wasn’t quite happy with how they turned out so I made some adjustments and came up with my own version.

They still have sugar but are also a great source of nutrients with the almonds and the seeds. I used sesame seeds and raw, sliced almonds but next time will probably add some sunflower seeds and/or nuts to add more bang per bite. If you are allergic to nuts but peanuts are o.k., substitute them for the almonds.

You can make an entire batch and individually wrap them and store in the freezer for up to 2 months.

ENJOY!
