The Paleo diet doesn't include those cheap filling ingredients like flour, rice and pasta or other grains and therefore it can be quite costly to buy ingredients but in saying that it is also a very filling diet so you don't need to eat as much at each meal or snack.
I've been cooking and baking for years and I feel that I have a fairly good idea of what can go together and work and what certain ingredients do and don't do, so I am okay with messing around with recipes.
Banana Almond Muffins
|Banana and Almond Muffins - Paleo Friendly|
Preheat oven to 180C (350F)
Grease the muffin tins
3/4 cup coconut flour
3/4 cup almond meal
2 lightly beaten eggs
1/2 cup almond butter
2 tbsp olive oil or coconut oil
2 tbsp honey
2 large ripe bananas
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp bi-carb soda (baking soda)
In a large mixing bowl, mix together almond butter, olive oil, honey and 2 eggs. Add mashed bananas and mix well.
Add all the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix together lightly.
Spoon into muffin trays and bake for approximately 15 to 20 mins.
You could also add chocolate chips for a yummy variation and you may notice that in the photo there are largish white pieces, these are white chocolate chips which are definitely not Paleo but I threw them in anyway. Normally for a completely Paleo friendly muffin I would have left these out or put in dark chocolate chips instead.
The muffins didn't last long in our house which is always a good sign that I got it right this time :)
