Banana Cinnamon Breakfast Muffins

These muffins do not have any added sugar!  They’re just sweetened naturally with the bananas. The secret with this is using really ripe bananas.  They’re so naturally sweet at the point when they’re covered in brown spots that you really don’t need any additional sugar which make them a perfect way to start your day.  Full of protein and good fats they are Low Carb and will keep you full until lunch without any kind of sugar crash.  Gluten-free, grain-free and dairy-free too, these Banana Cinnamon Breakfast Muffins are great for those on special diets such as Paleo, or the Specific Carbohydrate Diet.Banana Cinnamon Breakfast Muffins by Emma Eats & Explores - Grainfree, Glutenfree, Refined Sugarfree, Dairyfree, Paleo, SCD, Vegetarian, Low CarbThey’re also incredibly easy to make!  Everything is done in one bowl so there’s less washing up!  You start by pre-heating your oven to 180C (350F) and lining a muffin tin with muffins cases.

Next, peel the bananas and add them to a large mixing bowl.  Add the eggs, almond flour (ground almonds), cinnamon and melted coconut oil too.  Mash the ingredients (I use a potato masher) so that the bananas are broken up and distributed throughout the mixture and everything is thoroughly combined.Banana Cinnamon Breakfast Muffins by Emma Eats & Explores - Grainfree, Glutenfree, Refined Sugarfree, Dairyfree, Paleo, SCD, Vegetarian, Low CarbAdd the bicarbonate of soda and mix again thoroughly.  Spoon the mixture into the muffin cases, filling them about two thirds full.  Sprinkle the nuts over the top.  I like to us chopped hazelnuts as I like the flavour combination but you could use any nuts you like.  Or you could leave them out altogether – 1 less step and ingredient to worry about!

Place the muffin tray into the pre-heated oven and bake for about 20 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean when inserted into the centre of the muffin.

These Banana Cinnamon Breakfast Muffins are best served warm straight from the oven or you can re-heat them for a few minutes.  You house will smell absolutely divine while these are cooking.Banana Cinnamon Breakfast Muffins by Emma Eats & Explores - Grainfree, Glutenfree, Refined Sugarfree, Dairyfree, Paleo, SCD, Vegetarian, Low CarbThey’re so delicious you could also serve them as a dessert or a snack.  No-one will guess they’re refined sugar free or healthy!  If you love these, I have a slightly less healthier version for you to try as well.  My Chocolate Banana Muffins with Pecans are a more indulgent snack or my Grain Free Banana Bread makes a great tea-time treat!Banana Cinnamon Breakfast Muffins by Emma Eats & Explores - Grainfree, Glutenfree, Refined Sugarfree, Dairyfree, Paleo, SCD, Vegetarian, Low Carb
