2 Minute – Healthy Dessert Recipe

Hello Beautiful People ❀

I hope you have all recovered from the bank holiday weekend? I know I’m still getting back to normal. The long weekend was a bit of a wash for me when it came to healthy eating. I spent the three days over indulging, but to be fair that’s what theseΒ weekends are for. I always find that after a few days like this, I tend to crave naughty food (even more so than usual) for about a week afterwards. For me, it’sΒ the first few minutes of the craving that can do the most damage. If I don’t have anything to hand quickly, I tend to give in to whatever it is that I’m craving (usually chocolate!)

So in the midst of some sugar withdrawals the other day, I made this little clean dessert style snack. It really did the trick and took me two minutes to make. Perfect to stop that craving in it’s tracks!

Paleo Banana Muffins

Hey Guys,
I was in baking mode yesterday and decided to try out these yummy Banana Muffins. They are paleo but if you want to use normal flour, go ahead. Though I would advise that you convert the measurements as recipes tend to require less coconut flour in comparison to regular flour! These muffins are a perfect breakfast option ( I had 2 this morning!) The recipe again is really not difficult, I would advise using an electric hand mixer or alternatively mashing the bananas before they are added to the
mixture.
Serving Size: 11/12 muffins
What you need:
  • 4 bananas
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/2 cup almond butter
  • 1 tbsp organic raw honey
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil (melt it first to make mixing easier)
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 cup coconut flour
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
What you do:
  • Preheat oven to 180 degrees C
  • Β Add bananas, eggs, almond butter, coconut oil & vanilla extract and blend.
  • Add in the coconut flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  • Poor the batter evenly into your muffin cases, fill them up approx two-thirds of the way.
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes

Sorry the lighting in my kitchen is not ideal for taking pics, but you get the idea! The muffins have the same brown look as regular banana bread with very similar texture.
Hope you enjoy!
Happy Baking πŸ™‚
