Paleo Banana Muffins


Two words: BAKED GOODS

More words: I'm not great at baked goods.

With cooking, you can eff stuff up and still fix it later. With baking, it's a science. I'm bad at following directions in my own kitchen. I usually don't have the patience or the sweet tooth to care much that there are rarely baked goods in my house.

I bet you're super excited to try this recipe now that I've hyped up my baking aptitude.

Regardless, these came out really well and muffins are as convenient as can be to grab when you need a little snack or breakfast. They do have that healthy taste to them (maybe unavoidable?), but you'd never be able to tell that these are flourless!

  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup

  1. Preheat to 350.
  2. Grease muffin pan (or use liners).

  6. Let cool on a cooling rack.
  7. Spread some nut butter on them or drizzle with coconut oil.
