Ingredients

  • 1 cup mashed ripe bananas approx. 2 large or 3 small bananas
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup creamy almond butter
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/4 cup almond flour packed
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips or chopped walnuts optional

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350°.
  • Use a potato masher or a fork to mash bananas in a large bowl. To that same bowl, add the eggs, almond butter, syrup, and vanilla and whisk to combine.
  • Then, add the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and cinnamon to the bowl and gently fold with a spatula. If you're adding chocolate chips/walnuts, gently fold them in.
  • Spray a muffin tin with nonstick spray or grease with coconut oil (or you can use muffin liners -- I ran out, so I didn't). Divide the batter evenly, then bake the muffins with 20-22 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
  • Remove from the oven and allow the muffins to sit in the tin for 2 minutes, then carefully remove them and transfer to a cooling rack. Enjoy!
