Banana Walnut Muffins

I got this recipe a few months ago from someone at CFPT - Liz, maybe? - and have made it a couple times now. Both times, the muffins have been super moist and very delish. Even my non-paleo boyfriend likes to eat them! :)

Dry Ingredients:

2 C almond flour/meal (Trader Joe’s Almond Meal is the cheapest)

1/3 C coconut flour

1 tsp baking soda

1 tsp salt

1 tsp cinnamon

1/2 tsp nutmeg (grated fresh)

1 C baking walnuts

Wet Ingredients:

2 bananas, the riper the better

1 T vanilla

3 eggs at room temperature

1/3 C honey

3 T oil (olive oil is fine, coconut oil when liquid is excellent, and hazelnut oil hits it out of the park!)

2 T almond butter (unsalted, but if salted, just add 3/4 tsp salt instead of 1 tsp)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and place walnuts in to roast. Keep an eye on the walnuts, they burn easily! Mash bananas into a liquid. Mix in the honey and almond butter. Beat eggs and add in with oil and vanilla. In a separate bowl mix all the dry ingredients including walnuts, then mix wet and dry ingredients. Place in muffin cups. Depending on if you are making small or large muffins, cooking time will vary. It can take anywhere from 10-20 minutes. My batches make 12 muffins and take between 12 and 16 minutes.
