My friend Katie (who is as talented in the kitchen as she is when it comes to music) sent me this recipe for grain free, dairy free banana muffins and it was so good I had to pass it on. Especially for all of my friends at ARCFit who are currently doing a 6 Week Paleo Challenge. Sometimes we all want a little treat for breakfast or with our coffee and one can only have eggs so many times before it gets old right? (My second favorite breakfast: this smoothie.)
Confession: the first time I made these I threw in a few dark chocolate chips so they weren’t 100% Paleo, but the next batch I made was just plain and they were still so good! Flavorful and moist (god I hate that word, but it’s a necessity when describing recipes like this!) it tasted just like my favorite banana bread. I even served them to my mom and aunt last weekend (who aren’t even Paleo) and they raved.
Also, they’re a cinch!
