Paleo Banana Muffins
February 11, 2012 Leave a comment
Dora gave me the e-cookbook, Paleo Sweets by Nikki Young for my birthday. Since we had some bananas that were past their prime, I decided to make these for breakfast:
2 ripe bananas, mashed
1-1/2 C almond flour
1 T vanilla extract
2 T almond oil
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1 T honey
3 eggs, separated
1/3 C walnuts, coarsely chopped
Preheat the oven to 325 on convection (although I’ll try 300 next time)
The egg whites will look like this when they are finished. Fold them gently into the the other ingredients. (I recommend drinking a cup of coffee before attempting this recipe. I was lucky that Jewel was helping me, as she asked me what I planned to do with the egg whites since I had already poured the batter into the muffin tin)
Mine came out slightly burnt after 50 min, so I will reduce the heat next time. They still were very tasty. Tom liked them so much he had seconds!
P.S. For those who are counting, these muffins have only 165 cal each!
