Banana chip muffins made with coconut flour, high in fiber and naturally gluten-free. Perfect grab and go breakfast or snack option.
I am always in search of easy to make, grab and go options and these are perfect and came together seamlessly. I am constantly thinking up recipes that are added sugar free while still tasting on point. These definitely fit the bill (sweetened with banana).
The best part is that these are super easy to make with ingredients you have on hand – for me that is bananas and coconut flour.
Growing up, I was addicted to banana chips for the sweetness and crunch. Little did I know that most banana chips had added sugar which baffles me since fruit are naturally sweet on their own. Of course, sugar is a preservative and typically the reason why we see it added. Always read the ingredient list – but of course a little sugar won’t hurt you!
If you make these, be sure to tag me on Insta. I love seeing your NBM creations!
Snack time or breakfast! They are a good balance of fiber to protein which means staying power and energy. I recommend making a batch on the weekend to have for grab and go snacks throughout the week. That way you have a balanced option available in which you know all the ingredients that are used.
Coconut flour is one of my favorite flours to bake with because it is naturally sweet, gluten-free and adds a unique texture to baked goods. It’s incredibly rich in fiber which we know is good for digestion and keeping us regular. These also have eggs added which you know I love. Not only do eggs provide high biological value protein, they contain an array of B vitamins including biotin for healthy hair and skin as well as B12 which protects the nervous system and supports brain health. Eggs are also one of the most concentrated sources of choline. Some of choline’s roles include neurotransmitter synthesis (brain communication) and thus memory and cognition.
