Eat your Muffins without Gaining the Muffin Top!

Attention all my carb lovers!!!  I don’t about you but I love me some carbs ….especially in the morning! Yum, yum!

I am usually pretty structured and boring with my breakfast go-to’s but once and awhile I get that craving for something sweet and comforting.

The other day, the cravings were too strong to resist so I got to work on these healthy banana walnut muffins.  They are totally guilt-free….I promise!  No one will even know they are healthy because they are so moist and flavorful!

INGREDIENTS
  • ⅓ cup melted coconut oil
  • ½ cup maple syrup or honey (if you use maple syrup, make sure it’s pure)
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 mashed bananas
  • ¼ cup of water or almond milk (I used water because I ran out of almond milk)
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1¾ cups quinoa, almond or coconut flour (I used quinoa because it’s what I had in the pantry)
  • ⅓ cup old-fashioned oats, plus more for sprinkling on top
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts

 

INSTRUCTIONS
  1. Preheat oven to 325°F and grease your muffin tin or use muffin cups.
  2. In a large bowl, beat the coconut oil and maple syrup or honey together with a whisk.
  3. Crack in the eggs and continue to beat.
  4. Add in the mashed bananas, water/milk, baking soda, vanilla extract, salt and cinnamon.
  5. Mix the flour, oats and walnuts into the bowl with a large spoon, until combined.
