A Paleo Maple Pecan Banana Bread Muffin recipe that is made in one bowl with a few simple ingredients. Gluten Free, Grain Free, and Sugar Free. They are better than anything you will find in your local bakery! 

I don’t know about you, but I love a good  muffin! They are easy, nutritious, versatile, comforting and make the best grab and go snacks! Which, given my weekly topic about creating recipes that make my weekdays easier, these fit right in!

And can we talk about how they make the house smell absolutely incredible while they are baking? Warm maple, bananas, maybe a hint of cinnamon if you’d like. They are better smelling than any candle you can buy! That’s for sure!

Paleo Maple Pecan Banana Bread Muffins

The perfect food to just grab and go! And if you want to round them out and make a full meal, pack them with some greek yogurt or cottage cheese and fruit! Muffins with cottage cheese and fresh cut fruit was one of my grandmother’s’ favorite summertime breakfasts on Cape Cod when we were growing up. And it was also one of mine! Whenever I can have a meal that brings back memories like that it’s an extra special one in my book!

The middle is as soft and moist as any banana bread but without all the extra butter like regular muffins! Only heart healthy coconut oil here!

Which means, you can finish them off with a big slather of ghee! Because I am all about those healthy fats! But a good dollop of almond butter or peanut butter would be really nice too!

These also freeze really well! So make a full batch and enjoy half this week and half the following week! Now, that’s what I call a meal prep win!
