QB loves his berry muffins, but in order to change things up a bit I wanted to try something new. He mentioned the idea of a banana bread type of muffin, so I set to work. These muffins are absolutely wonderful, but CRONies beware – these are twice the calorie density of the berry nut muffins. QB still has bias in favor of the berry ones, but he thinks these are a lovely deviation. I, personally, think they are heavenly. If I didn’t know that each small muffin was about 150 calories (you heard me), I would be more prone to snitching.These are a bit more expensive partly because they are denser so they batch is smaller, and partly because I added 4oz of pecans. So worth it though.
Paleo Banana Nut Muffins (20 *big* mini muffins)
150g Almond Flour (I grind my own)
40g Arrowroot Flour
56g Coconut Flour
14g Coconut Oil
28g Walnut Oil
100g Coconut Milk -Full Fat
300g Bananas (3 small)
112g Pecans, chopped
1/2t Imitation Banana Extract (optional controversial ingredient)
Pre-heat oven to 350F. I combined all the dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl -except pecans. I then made a large crater and filled it with the wet ingredients. I used my mixer to fully combine the mixture, then I added the chopped pecans. Divide into mini-muffin pan, or pan of choice. I think this recipe would make for a nice loaf as well. Bake muffins for 25min – may need longer if you use a loaf pan.
