Paleo Banana Nut Chocolate Muffins

Paleo Banana Nut Chocolate Muffins

Happy  New Year! I just returned from a long fun weekend away in Mississippi with my family but I am excited to get back home to my routine, meal planning and cooking at home.

Today, I am sharing with you a favorite paleo banana nut chocolate muffins recipe. I love how they turned out – moist and delicious, but not overly sweet. You can taste the bananas, nuts and chocolate chips – the muffins taste just like banana bread.

The muffins are paleo, gluten-free and dairy-free. I made with almond butter, coconut oil, and coconut flour. This combination creates the perfect texture for these paleo banana nut chocolate muffins.
