Pre-heat your oven to 350 degrees. Coat a 6 muffin tin with oil or line with muffin liners.
In a large bowl mix together the flour, oats, protein powder, cinnamon, baking powder, sea salt and half the walnuts.
In a smaller bowl mix together the mashed banana, maple syrup, egg and vanilla extract. Stir the wet into the dry until just mixed.
