Paleo Banana Walnut Chocolate Muffins

2/19/12

So today I've lived in my kitchen...technically the truth since I live in a hotel and it's one big room, hard not to live in the kitchen with these accommodations. I digress. I whipped up a batch of Paleo Banana Walnut Chocolate Muffins. Given the chance to re-do this recipe I would probably reduce the amount of walnuts, and add another banana, they are really dense and I think another banana would help that.

Paleo Banana Walnut Chocolate Muffins:

Ingredients:

  • 2 1/4 cups almond flour
  • 2 ripe bananas (I suggest adding a third)
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 TBSP cinnamon
  • 4 TBSP coconut oil
  • 3 eggs
  • 1-2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 cup Enjoy Life chocolate chips
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts (I would use less)
Directions:
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  • In a large bowl mash bananas with a fork
  • add eggs, coconut oil, and vanilla, mix
  • whisk to get rid of any large chunks
  • In a smaller bowl combine the dry ingredients (almond flour, baking soda, and cinnamon)
  • Slowly stir dry ingredients into the wet ingredients until fully mixed.
  • mix in Walnuts
  • stir in chocolate chips
  • drop spoonfulls into lined muffin pan
  • Bake for approx. 15 mins (this was a good time for the mini muffins, the large ones needed another 5 minutes)
  • Enjoy!
