Paleo Banana Nut Muffins (Nut-free option)

All Dessert Snacks


These babies are a crowd-pleaser. 

If you are looking for a simple Paleo recipe to use up those bananas that are on the verge of going bad, look no further. These are simple, delicious, and everyone loves them.

I have added nuts to mine cause banana and nuts are always a winning combo but I have also done these with blueberries, chocolate chips, and even plane with an extra dose of cinnamon.

For those of you who have a nut allergy, I tried this recipe with sunflower flour and it turned out great! Do note, that the color will change because of the chemical reaction baking soda has with the chlorophyll in the sunflower seeds. So don’t be surprised if your muffins are green! They aren’t bad and they still taste delicious. You can’t buy sunflower flour, at least not in any of the places I have looked, but it’s fairly easy to make. Simply grind it up in a food processor or high-speed blender. I use my NutriBullet and it comes out great.

I hope you and your loved ones enjoy this Paleo Muffin recipe as much as we do!
