Hello everyone! How did you like those last two posts? They were both guest posts done by my boyfriend, Anders. He was kind enough to fill in for me a little while my teammates and I toured the ENTIRE country of Ireland.
I had a great time with my team for those 12 days, but I was happy to be home and back into a routine. Traveling is rough on both your mind and body and can be a challenge when I am trying to eat healthy. More to come on how to combat those challenges in a later post, for now I want to share with you a delicious little recipe.
The food in Ireland was great. Fresh meat, TONS of potatoes, and delicious little chocolate croissants (I had a serious weakness for those little buggers). Even though it was all delicious, by the time we arrived back in the states, I was more than ready to make my own food!
Begin cooking binge!
This morning I gave this recipe a try and man, oh man is it a keeper. I present clean, gluten-free, paleo-friendly and all-around delicious Banana Nut Muffins.
Banana Nut Muffins
1/2 cup coconut flour
1/4-1/3 cup of honey (adjust according to desired sweetness)
1/3 cup coconut oil
2 ripe bananas, mashed
1 tbsp vanilla
1 tsp baking soda
Walnuts for toppings
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. In a bowl, combine all ingredients except walnuts. Add bananas last.
3. Line and grease a muffin tin. Fill tins about half full, the muffins will rise considerably. Top each muffin with walnuts.
4. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown.
Makes about 12 muffins.
I could barely wait for them to cool down when they came out of the oven because they smelled DELICIOUS. Once I was sure they wouldn’t burn a hole in my mouth I dug in. They did not disappoint. Next time I may throw in a few chocolate chips just to switch it up.
Check back later for another delicious recipe and a short, intense workout.
