Paleo-style banana-nut muffin recipe




This recipe is #grainfree, #glutenfree and #dairyfree. To make it vegan, simply whip up some flax seeds with water to replace the eggs. There is absolutely no sugar or sugar replacement added, making them a great breakfast for diabetics.

The bananas and coconut flour give off some sweetness, although these are definitely more savoury and nutty. You can add a touch of honey to the mixture if you prefer a sweeter treat. The muffins are also very light and fluffly, unlike some other gluten-free recipes, which tend to be pretty dense.



What You Need

Makes 12 muffins

3 ripe bananas
4 free-range extra-large eggs
¼ cup coconut oil
½ cup coconut flour
¼ cup almond flour
1 tsp baking soda
Seeds from a vanilla pod (or 1 tsp vanilla essence)

Method

1/ Preheat oven to 200 degrees Celsius.
2/ Mash banana, mix in eggs and coconut oil until well-combined.
3/ Add in the rest of the ingredients and mix until fairly smooth.
4/ Pour equal amounts of batter into the muffin tray.
5/ Bake for 15 minutes until golden and set.
6/ Remove from oven and allow to cool in muffin tray, before serving.

This look absolutely delicious! Thank you for the recipe. i'll have to try this myself sometime soon!

The point of the Paleo diet is, and I feel some people forget this, to not only diet, but to eat delicious foods at the same time. It's the only diet I've come across that cuts out food groups, yet still focusses on everyone's need to eat great food.

I'm a real foodie, and would not survive on any other diet, but Paleo has been very good for me. I've written about one of my favourite cookbooks: http://cookbook-reviews.net/review-the-paleo-recipe-book/
