Foodie Friday Recipe: Paleo Morning Glory Muffins
Looking for a tasty, healthy, nutritious make-ahead breakfast option that you can eat on the go? Try these delicious Paleo muffins!
If you want a healthy and easy breakfast idea, look no further! These Paleo breakfast muffins are packed full of real, nutritious ingredients like bananas, carrots, and sunflower butter. They are grain-free, dairy-free, and nut-free (though you can make them with nut butter if you prefer), so they are perfect for the Paleo dieter, or those on a gluten-free eating plan.
Cinnamon provides a flavorful kick, while bananas add natural sweetness – no sugar needed! Coconut flour is a good alternative to regular flour in these tasty muffins, and if you prefer peanut butter or almond butter, you can use that instead of the creamy sunflower butter. This is a great way to get your kids to eat more fruits and vegetables, and they contain an excellent balance of protein, carbs, and healthy fats.
They only take 30 minutes to make, but if you’re always in a hurry in the morning, make them the day before for a quick and easy breakfast or snack on the go throughout the week. They also freeze well.
These tasty breakfast muffins are a great way to eat healthy even when you’re busy!
