Delicious and Healthy Banana Nut Muffins
2 cups almond flour
¼ cup coconut flour
2/3 cup monk fruit or allulose (for a low-carb sweetener)
1 tbsp baking powder
2 tsp cinnamon
¼ tsp sea salt
½ tsp xanthan gum (for texture)
½ cup unsalted butter (melted; or coconut oil for dairy-free)
½ cup milk or unsweet almond milk
4 large eggs (at room temperature)
2 tsp banana extract
1 cup walnuts (chopped)
stevia-sweetened chocolate chips (Lily’s brand)
Preheat your oven to 350°F. Line a muffin pan with baking cups or lightly grease the muffin pan to prevent sticking.
Combine Dry Ingredients in a large bowl, mixing them thoroughly to ensure an even distribution of the ingredients.
Cream Butter and Sweetener in another bowl, beating the unsalted butter (or coconut oil) and monk fruit sweetener until the mixture becomes light and fluffy. This might take a few minutes, but it's worth the effort for that perfect muffin texture.
Incorporate Wet Ingredients into the creamed mixture, adding the eggs one at a time, and beating well after each addition. Then add the milk and banana extract, ensuring that everything is well blended.
Combine Wet and Dry Mixtures by gradually adding the dry ingredients into the wet mixture, and mixing until a thick and well-combined batter forms.
Add Walnuts and Chocolate Chips, stirring gently. These ingredients will add a delightful crunch and sweetness to your muffins.
Fill Muffin Cups by carefully transferring the muffin batter into the prepared muffin pan. If you like, you can sprinkle some extra walnuts on top of each muffin for added crunch and nutty flavor.
Bake to Perfection for 25-35 minutes. Keep an eye on the muffins; they are done when the tops turn golden, and an inserted toothpick comes out clean.
Let Muffins Cool before indulging in the delicious aroma and flavor.
These muffins make for a fantastic breakfast, snack, or dessert option. You can enjoy them guilt-free as part of your healthy diet plan.
We hope you enjoy these scrumptious muffins as much as we do!
