Paleo Banana Bread Muffins


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! 

(Recipe makes 12 servings)

1/2 cup coconut flour
6 eggs
1/3 cup honey or agave — whatever floats your boat
1/3 cup olive oil
2/3 cup crushed walnuts (optional)
2 bananas
1 tbsp vanilla
1 tsp baking soda
2 tsp cinnamon


Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Mix all together adding finely chopped bananas last 
Pour into silicone muffin cups, or greased and lined muffin tins 
Top with some nuts 
Make a juvenile joke about your love of nuts
Bake 20-25 min.

Hot out of the oven, these will knock your socks off!

    I hate baking but these sound really good. This is the first recipe I've seen in a while that I've even vaguely pondered making.

    You weren't kidding, these are SO GOOD! I just pulled a batch out of the oven and it was torture waiting the few minutes for one to cool enough to eat it. Thanks for sharing!

    […] I still woke up early but got to drink my coffee with a good book while I waited for my freshly baked muffins. […]

    Oh my goodness. Love, love, love. I’ve made two batches of these babies in the last 4 days. My boyfriend (who is not 100% on board with my way of eating – yet… baby steps) couldn’t even tell that these were grain-free. As in he couldn’t tell because I didn’t tell him. Ha! Now if I could just stop eating them…
