Banana walnut muffins {clean eating recipe}

IMG_0196

So, I think these are my new favorite muffin. They might even be better than my normal banana bread. I know they are way healthier with NO sugar, white flour, or butter. Made with healthy, all natural ingredients – almond flour, coconut butter, banana. And with an added crunch of walnuts and chia seeds. You won’t even notice that there is no sugar in these muffins. Skeptical? Yup, I was too when I first saw this recipe from Lauren. I tweaked it a bit based on what I had on hand and whoa, these babies are amazing. I ate one for a snack last night, breakfast the next day and then, another snack. Yup, probably should have made a triple batch. Bonus points for being Advocare (max phase) friendly!

  6. It is funny because the only way that I like walnuts is in banana bread or muffins 😉 These sound great, Katie!
