Grain free and refined sugar free. This paleo banana nut muffins recipe is sure to become a favorite in your household. While I’m not one to put my kids on any specific diet, I always try to find healthier choices especially in muffins! That’s because my boys can eat two or three muffins in one sitting. No joke, my four year old eats like a teenager. Add chocolate to the mix and I have to stop him from eating them all.
It’s not your typical muffin texture because of the almond flour, but it’s a healthier alternative!
It definitely satiates the sweet tooth. The recipe calls for agave nectar which is much lower in glycemic index than it’s cousin sugar. You can also use honey.
