... as in vanilla-chocolate banana protein muffins (that's a mouth full of a name)!
Word of warning: these came out HORRIBLE! The texture was all wrong, the taste was all wrong, and I just didn't like them at all. I was going to throw them out but the boyfriend insisted on trying one and said to just keep it... it's edible and he'll eat it if he's starving. Geez... he makes like we have no food to survive on.
