Delicious Grain Free - Sugar Free Banana Nut Muffins (Paleo Recipe)

What could be better than a delicious, warm banana nut muffin? Unfortunately for many people,either due to gluten sensitivity or by diet choice, treats like this are off limits. In my quest to feel better and yet not drive my family crazy at the same time; I found this tasty recipe. It fits the bill for anyone trying to avoid gluten or grains altogether!

~ Ingredients that you will need ~
Recipe makes 12 muffins
* 4 ripe bananas - mashed with a fork
* 4 eggs (or substitute for egg allergy)
* 1/2 cup almond or other nut butter (I used half walnut/half almond)
* 2 Tbsp Coconut Oil
* 1 tsp vanilla
* 1/2 cup Coconut Flour
* 2 tsp cinnamon
* 1/2 tsp nutmeg
* 1 tsp baking powder
* 1 tsp baking soda
* 1/4 tsp salt

* optional - if sweeter muffin is desired, add 1/3 cup honey, maple syrup, or 8 packets of stevia

1) Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit
2) Line muffin tin with papers or grease well
3) Blend bananas, eggs, nut butter, coconut oil and vanilla well

4) In a separate bowl, blend remaining (dry) ingredients.
5)Blend dry ingredients well into wet mixture. Mixture will be slightly lumpy.

6) Fill muffin tins about 2/3 full.
7) Place in oven and REDUCE the temperature to 350 degrees.
8) Bake for approximately 20 to 25 minutes or until toothpick inserted in middle comes out clean.

9) Let cool in pan for 5 to 10 mins then place muffins on cooling rack to finish.
10) Enjoy!

    1. Oops! Thank you for asking because I didn't realized that I'd left the measurement off of the recipe! It is 1/2 cup of coconut flour.
