Banana Nut Chocolate Chip Muffins

banana nut chocolate chip muffinsIt 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!

Banana Nut Chocolate Chip Muffins


  • 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)


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  2. Mash bananas in a large bowl. Add eggs, maple syrup, almond butter, and vanilla extract and mix together.
  3. Then add coconut flour, cinnamon, baking soda and powder and a pinch of salt and mix well.
  4. Lastly, fold in walnuts and chocolate chips.
  5. Use an ice cream scoop to scoop batter into 9 cups of a silicone muffin pan.
  6. Bake for 25 minutes. Let cool before removing from silicone pan.
  7. 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!
