Primal Banana Muffins

I like this paleo pumpkin muffin recipe.
I adapted the recipe to make these banana muffins a few weeks back.
1½ cups almond flour
3/4 cup  pureed banana
3 large eggs
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 to 2 tsp  ground cinnamon
1/8 tsp sea salt
1/4 cup raw honey (optional)
2 tsp almond butter
  1. Preheat oven to 350℉.
  2. Coat 6 muffin tins with coconut oil (or use paper muffin cups and add 1/2 tsp melted coconut oil to batter).*
  3. Mix all ingredients and pour evenly into muffin pan.
  4. Bake for 25 minutes on the middle rack.
* I use a silicone muffin pan so I omit this step and also shorten the baking time by 5-7 minutes.
Serve warm with butter!
I typically make a double batch of muffins.  I figure if I am going to the work, I should at least make enough for my family.

We tried these apple muffins recipe this morning.  I think that all 3 of these recipes turn out very similar in texture, just slightly different flavors (pumpkin/banana/apple)... so take your pick! :)

*****************************UPDATE, 2/10/12******************************

My new choice way of making banana muffins is following this muffin recipe, with the following changes:

Use banana puree in place of the pumpkin and maple syrup.  Omit the nutmeg and cloves.  Keep the rest of the ingredients the same.  Chocolate chips are still optional - I haven't tried it with them.

I also like this banana bread.

Enjoy!
