Eat This: Coconut Oil Banana Nut Mini Muffins

banana muffins

Muffins are a danger on our home. They are so easy to pick up, slather a butter of some sort on, eat for a snack, or three snacks.
I whipped these up in no time flat. In fact, it was a crazy weekend. I was attending a women’s conference in town that weekend, and wanted to leave some thing for the men in our home to eat on while I was away. Isn’t that nice? Really, I wanted to eat them too.
So, what better thing to do than to whisk up some banana muffins. And to make them healthier and easier to eat these are actually small bites of healthy goodness.
I tweaked the recipe from Heather, my neighbor and blogger of delicious recipes. My husband and older boy loved these and they are perfect for young kids because of their healthy benefits.

    I suppose a “healthy” family would have all that in their pantry!

    Mmm! I just need to get some whole wheat flour and I’m set! I have a jar of coconut oil and mashed nanners in the freezer. Did you put nuts in yours? Trying to think if I have any of those in the freezer, too… Off to look! 🙂
