Paleo Banana Almond Muffins

Yields: 12 large or 15 smaller muffins

Adapted from: Paleo Pumpkin Muffins from Carrots n Cake

2 cups almond meal/flour

4 medium ripe bananas, mashed

4 eggs

1/2 cup smooth almond butter

2 tsp. baking powder

2 Tbsp. ground cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice (it’s good!)

1/2 tsp. sea salt

1. Preheat oven to 350F and line muffin with muffin liners or grease well with cooking spray. Set aside.

2. In a large bowl combine almond meal, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt. Whisk to combine.

3. In a separate bowl, mix eggs, almond butter, and mashed bananas together.

4.  Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients. Blend until smooth with an immersion blender or food processor. *(This may not be necessary if your almond flour is super fine. I make mine at home so it’s a bit chunky and blending it helps smooth things out).

5. Divide batter evenly amongst muffin tins and bake for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

6. Let cool and enjoy!
