Paleo Banana Muffins

Hi guys!  I hope you are having a good week.  We got back from our MN family vacation last week and as soon as we got off the plane it was work, work, work.  School started for my son Christian last Friday, needless to say: my week consisted of "back to school" clothes and supply shopping.  

 I was also utilizing any free time to further prepare for my Personal Training Certification.  If you follow me on any of my social media accounts, you are probably aware that I took the exam last Thursday and that I passed!  
So exciting!  I am now a NASM Certified Personal Trainer.  

Since posting the photo of my exam results I have received a ton of questions from people who are currently studying for the exam.  I will have a post coming up soon with my tips, tools and recommendations, basically what I did to prepare for the exam.

OK, on to the recipe...
 I have made it my mission to make breakfast and basically all of our meals as quick and as simple of possible. I love baking treats that are nutritious, delicious and full of healthy fats.

I wanted to share a Banana Muffin recipe that has seriously been a lifesaver in the last couple of weeks.  I have been serving these for breakfast along side eggs but, these are also great for an after school snack or even as dessert.

Did I mention these are also Paleo?  
I hope you guys enjoy!

Banana Muffins

Ingredients:
4 ripe medium size bananas, mashed 
2 whole eggs
1/3 cup of melted coconut oil
1 tsp. of vanilla extract
1 tbsp. of coconut sugar
1/4 tsp. of salt
1/3 cup of coconut flour
1/4 tsp. of baking powder
1/4 tsp. of baking soda
1/4 tsp. of ground cinnamon
a pinch of nutmeg

Directions:
Preheat your oven at 350 degrees.  Spray a 12 cup muffin pan with baking spray.  In a large bowl combined your mashed bananas and the rest of the wet ingredients with a hand mixer or with a fork.  Once the wet ingredients are well combined, add in your dry ingredients and mix until well combined.  Add in your mixture in to your muffin tray (about 2 tbsp. per muffin.)  Place the muffin tray in the preheated oven.  Bake the muffins for 40-45 minutes, rotating the baking tray half way through the baking process.  Let them cool completely before serving.  

Enjoy!  
I hope you give this recipe a try!
