Strawberry Banana Protein Muffins

I feel like strawberry banana is one of those classic flavor combinations that make most people smile in delight. I mean...I smile when I taste them together. These muffin's name speaks for itself. Instant smile! They are significantly low in sugar, allowing you to avoid the typical post-muffin sugar spike.
