Paleo Banana Chocolate Walnut Muffins

Paleo Banana Chocolate Walnut Muffins

I do not consider myself to be much of a recipe creator – especially when it comes to paleo baking. I dabble, but I mostly follow recipes from other authors. So when I actually create something, and it’s awesome, I’m REALLY excited.

And I’m REALLY EXCITED about these muffins!!

I took one bite and immediately brought a muffin to my husband so he could taste how delicious these are. And then I texted my mom. They’re just really good! 😉

Banana Chocolate Walnut Muffins

These guys are basically the texture of moist (I hate that word) banana bread, but in cute muffin form.

Now, I have to admit that I kind of laugh whenever I see “Paleo…*insert your baked good or candy here*”. “Paleofying” things like muffins does not suddenly turn a treat into healthy, real food. I don’t suggest eating muffins for breakfast, or making Paleo sweets every week. Why? THEY STILL HAVE SUGAR, and they usually replace more nourishing food.

BUT. If you ARE going to have a treat, might as well make it one that is TOTALLY DELICIOUS without using refined sugar, flour, and dairy, right?? Right. These muffins are awesome for that, and I would serve them to non-Paleo/gluten-free company in a heartbeat. 🙂
