Gluten Free and Paleo Banana Nut Muffins

Gluten Free Paleo Banana Nut Muffins

So excited to share my recipe for Gluten Free and Paleo Banana Nut Muffins with you! After much testing, I found a definite winner! These whole-food based muffins are sweetened only with bananas and have a base of almond butter (protein kick!) and coconut flour. Perfect make ahead breakfast, snack, or lunch box treat. Quick tip: you might want to double the recipe because these banana nut muffins are freezer friendly.

Need the muffins to be nut-free? Simply, omit the walnut pieces and sub the almond butter for sunflower seed butter.
