I know that you probably just rolled your eyes when you saw the title of this post but may I ask you to please slow your roll? These aren’t just paleo muffins, they’re also gluten free, so think of them that way. Oh, and they’re packed with protein which means two of them will keep you full all the way to lunch. That’s more than we can say for your morning bagel, isn’t it?
I even got these muffin tops to stay muffin tops and not invert, as they usually do. In my book, that’s a win.
I had four bananas laying around, looking all sad on top of my fridge. Surely I didn’t want to eat them, so I thought I’d make some banana bread. But then I realized that I’d eat the whole loaf alone and immediately regret it. Paleo muffins they would be, and then I had breakfast all week. You just can’t beat that.
BANANA BREAD PALEO MUFFINS (adapted from here)
4 ripe bananas
1/2 cup nut butter (I used almond)
1/2 cup coconut flour
2 tablespoons coconut oil
1 tablespoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon nutmeg
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1. Preheat oven to 350°
2. In a blender, you are welcome, add bananas, eggs, nut butter, coconut oil & vanilla. Blend to combine.
3. Add in dry ingredients and blend that ish in. You may have to help the blender a bit but please do this when it is off. I’d like it if you kept all of your fingers.
4. In a muffin tin lined with cups distribute batter until filled 2/3 way full. It’s a little over two heaping tablespoons per muffin.
5. Bake for 15-20 minutes, mine were more like 20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
yum – i made the same thing yesterday, but different recipe – http://withstyleandgraceblog.com/2012/05/22/paleo-banana-bread-muffins/
Ok fine, they really good. Now cook them for me.
I’ve been trying to make something like this for a week, but a certain individual who lives with me keeps stealing all the ripe bananas for his protein shakes. I’m going to have to start a hidden stash, b/c these look amazing.
Banana bread in muffin form = major win. These look so yummy!
I was a little skeptical when I read the title, but these actually sound amazing!
Oh man, these look amazing! Banana bread is my absolute fave!
not a huge fan of the paleo trend but I love carbs & always looking for a way to have them without the guilt!
Somehow I’ve never made Banana Bread. That will change w/ my sad looking bananas that are on my fridge right now!!
I always want protein in the morning, but crave something carb-y. So, these look kinda perfect! xo
Was not rolling eyes! These look awesome!
Get it lady… these look amazing!
YUM!! I am gonna switch the eggs for flax eggs then eat every damn one of them. Vegan delights.
Hmm where can I get old bananas because I want to make these, stat, but not with the gross green ones at the store. Problems!
My husband and I officially started our diet today and I already dying. But, these look healthy….and delicious! Perfect timing! xo
Reminds me of muffins my mom used to make on the weekend. And now I’m going to go scour my cupboard for something even remotely similar. Ok, I’m back. Chocolate chips and a banana did not suffice. I’m bookmarking this. It’s awesome that they’re gluten free, too.
I’ve made A LOT of paleo-version banana muffins and these are by far THE BEST!!! Closest thing to conventional banana muffins. Love, love, love that banana is the only sweetener in these, totally no need for maple syrup or honey. Yay!!!
