Banana Bread Muffins

If your looking for a fabulous quick bite in the mornings as your heading out the door, these mini muffins are the ideal breakfast you’ll love. Banana bread is one of my favorite things to nibble on here and there especially a few slices for breakfast. My Greek yogurt banana bread was a great hit and for as much as I enjoy the loaf version I wanted to try a different approach with making individual bite size portions to pair with my coffee on my commute into work every morning. I switched up the recipe a bit from the original by making this a friendly gluten free recipe and free of refined sugars. My use of Almond flour gives these little guys an awesome nut taste without the use of actual nuts!

If you like cake, I assure that you will enjoy these muffins. Although they don’t rise well, the muffins are super moist!
