Banana Hemp Seed Muffins

A classic banana bread typically includes smattering of walnuts or pecans. In this edition of The Clean Plate Makeover, I  chose to add some hemp protein powder and decorate with a sprinkle of hemp seeds! You could also bake this batter into a loaf or bar pan and garnish the top any way you like! I love it when food looks pretty! The green and cream-colored hemp seeds make these muffins fun and friendly.

They are perfect after a good hard workout for some glycogen replenishment, a late weekend breakfast, or a healthy on-the-go snack!
