I don’t know about you, but with such a busy lifestyle these days I’m always looking for convenient on-the-go breakfast ideas. I want something that’s not only easy to make and pack in my handbag, but also calorie conscious and full of energy. Thanks to Kashi® Organic Breakfast Superblends, I was able to create these protein packed chocolate chip banana muffins to help add a perfect start to my morning routine.

Kashi® Organic Breakfast Superblends are extremely versatile and will blend into any routine helping to deliver goodness throughout your day. Not only can you make muffins out of them {make sure to check out the recipe below}, but also smoothies, pancakes, popsicles, power bite macaroons, and even homemade ice-cream. 

This is currently a new product offered by Kashi and is being sold at Target.com. They have 3 different flavors: Rise & Shine Vanilla, Sun-up Coconut, and the one I used which is Cocoa Awakening {because you can never have too much chocolate in your lives!}. The possibilities of what you can make with these plant-based superblends is endless and what I love most is that they are both gluten free as well as vegan. 

In my recipe I wanted to make sure to use clean ingredients. I’m a huge fan of organic everything and try to always buy it when there is an option. I was also able to substitute apple sauce for butter and part of the sugar to help meet my health-focused goals. 

Interested in trying it out yourself? Use the code TGTKASHI at Target.com for $10 OFF one Kashi Protein Powder. How do you usually start your day in the morning? I would love to hear!
