Banana Nut Delicousness

With the school year in full swing, it’s helpful to have healthy snacks around the house — something that’s easy to grab during the inevitable morning whirlwind and ready and waiting when kids arrive home from school needing a small boost.

With a couple of ripe bananas and an abundance of almond meal from a friend who moved and gave me her stash, I searched for a simple recipe for almond meal banana muffins and came up with a winnerThis recipe was super easy to make and a huge hit with the wee ones and grown up ones alike!  Brain food, meet soul food…

Banana Nut Muffins

  • 3 cups almond meal
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 very ripe bananas, mashed
  • 1/3 cup honey or maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup melted coconut oil or melted butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • Handful of nuts (I used chopped walnuts) sprinkled throughout or on top if you’d like

Mix ingredients in this order.  Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.  Makes 12 big muffins or 24 minis.  Enjoy!

What’s your easy-to-make standby snack?  Please share!
