  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Coat muffin pan with coconut oil or line with paper liners.
  2. In a medium bowl, beat eggs, bananas and sweetener with a hand mixer or whisk. Add coconut oil, and flax or chia meal. Beat mixture until well combined.
  3. In a separate medium bowl, blend almond and coconut flour, baking powder, salt and spices. Pour banana mixture into flour mixture and mix to combine. Chop walnuts and mix into the batter.
  4. Use a scoop or tablespoon to pour batter into prepared muffin pan. Place in oven and bake for 15 – 20 minutes, until golden brown and firm on top. A toothpick inserted into the center should come out clean.
  5. Remove muffins from oven and allow to cool for about 5 minutes.
  6. Serve these muffins warm, or let cool completely and serve room temperature.

These Paleo Banana nut muffins can take a lot of variation. If you like a little extra spice, add black or white pepper to bring out the nuances of the cinnamon and vanilla. You can’t go wrong with chocolate, so a dose of cocoa powder in the batter and chocolate chips in the pool will keep the parents and kids coming back for more. Even add half a yam in place of a banana and pecans for walnuts, and you’ve got yourself a rather Southern sunrise prize.
