Banana Nut Chocolate Chip Muffins
It looks like the crazy weeks are just going to continue. I have been making an effort to find an organic place in South Florida or a trusted one online that I can order Grassfed Beef and Free Range Chicken from. I tried on #farming #organic and now I tried on #Paleo and #Primal but still no luck. I had I think 5 people favorite it but that is simple to get a response if someone actually responds. No luck yet so if anyone knows a good place please let me know
Quick status update on my personal goal, I am 3 lbs away from hitting my first goal of dropping 25 lbs. Pretty excited about that and it has really been super simple. I have been eating good food, I am never hungry so that is a plus in my columns. Exercise as you can tell has been folded in to my routine so I am sure that does help alot as well.
This recipe I am bringing you today is again from Julie and Paleomg. Its a copy of her Banana Nut Chololate Chip Muffins. Honestly if you are not following Julie you must! She is an amazing person but you all know that because I have stated that before. I made these and my entire family went through them like nothing. I wish I could say I had more than 1 but my 5 year old beat me to it.
Trust me make these!
- 3 bananas, mashed with a fork
- 3 eggs, whisked
- ¼ cup maple syrup
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- ½ cup smooth almond butter
- ¼ cup coconut flour
- ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
- ½ teaspoon baking soda
- ½ teaspoon baking powder
- pinch of salt
- ½ cup chopped walnuts
- ½ cup chocolate chips (I used Enjoy life but Julie recommends 72% Eating Evolved Baking Chocolate)
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees
- Mash bananas in a large bowl. Add eggs, maple syrup, almond butter, and vanilla extract and mix together.
- Then add coconut flour, cinnamon, baking soda and powder and a pinch of salt and mix well.
- Lastly, fold in walnuts and chocolate chips.
- Use an ice cream scoop to scoop batter into 9 cups of a silicone muffin pan.
- Bake for 25 minutes. Let cool before removing from silicone pan.
- Trust me if you do not have a silicone pan you may want to get one. I made my batch outside in a regular tin and I greased it really well but they still stuck. I ordered a silicone pan the following day!
