Banana Blueberry Muffins

Yesterday I somehow managed to drag myself out of bed for the 6AM CrossFit class, meaning that when I got off work, I was a free woman.  I even took off from work a little bit early, and spent my free few hours doing what I find most relaxing — cooking.  I picked out a few recipes I’ve been wanting to try, and set off for the grocery store.  Apparently, 5PM on a workday is THE time to be at Whole Foods.  I literally felt like I was the only one in the grocery store.  I casually strolled the aisles, looking at new ingredients, sauces, and spices, kind of meandering my way through the store – it felt so nice to just ignore my phone and take my time.

Although I was preparing to make dinner for F and myself, I decided also to make him a special surprise as a treat for such a hard week’s work.  My good friend Cheli, who also was the one who organized the Paleo Co-Op for CFSB, had passed off this paleo muffins recipe to me.  With just a few edits, a lot of love, and some definite relaxation, soon I had a whole plate of muffins all ready for celebrating a Friday morning.

They don't look like much...but don't judge a muffin by it's top

Don’t ask how many are left though….



1 cup almond flour

1tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp sea salt

1/2 T cinnamon (obviously I added a few extra shakes…you know how I feel about cinnamon)

1/2 cup dates, pitted

1.5 ripe bananas

2 eggs

1/2 tsp apple cider vinegar

1/8 cup coconut oil (melted)

1/3 cup walnuts, finely chopped

1.5 cartons of fresh blueberries

DIRECTIONS: Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Food process together the bananas, coconut oil, dates, eggs, and vinegar.  Pour mixture into a mixing bowl.  Add dry ingredients and mix well.  Fold in blueberries and walnuts.  Pour batter into muffin tins with muffin liners and bake at 350 for about 25 minutes.  Makes 9-10 muffins (I don’t allow myself to have any more than that in the house).


Peace love and paleo xo

    Wow, these sound delicious! Do you think that coconut flour could be substituted for the almond flour?

      Yes Brooke for sure! I interchange almond and coconut flour all the time with other recipes. Thanks for reading, you are so sweet! Try them with the coco flour and let me know how it goes 🙂
