Paleo Raspberry Almond Muffins

Make these, please. Would you? It’s a simple request really and will only cost you about 30 minutes of your time. I’m not a super huge muffin fan — I mean, I like them just fine, but I don’t dream about them. And I’m going to be honest with you and tell you that these muffins were mostly born from the need to use up some raspberries in the fridge and to find something for breakfast the following day. Last week the groceries around our here were slim pickins!

So I mixed them up, sprinkled some almonds on top, walked away and hoped for the best. The good news? Holy YUM — these were amazing! The bad news? They didn’t make it to breakfast the next day if you know what I’m saying. I think these may be my favorite paleo muffins yet. They have a fluffy egg base so they pack a protein punch, but the sweetness of the honey and raspberries really make you feel like you’re having a treat. Maybe that’s why we treated them like dessert, ahem.
I wouldn’t make them for breakfast every day, but for a treat — they are SCRUMPTIOUS!

Ok, find, we’ve made them 3 times since. (So much for treats, eh?)

    These look great..and just in time! My kids have been requesting berry muffins. 🙂 I also wanted to say that those muffin cups are so cute!!

    if I was going to un-banana this recipe due to an intense dislike of bananas coupled with an extreme refusal to purchase them – what would I use instead?

    Asking for a friend. Ahem.

      Hmmm…I also hate banans (well, in real life I don’t eat them) but I do like the moisture and texture they lend to this recipe. But if you are opposed to purchasing and using them, maybe unsweeted apple sauce — I’d imagine like 1/4-1/2C. Or any other kind of fruit puree???

      If you experiment, let me know.
