Monkey Business Muffins

THESE MUFFINS ARE A TREAT!  I BELIEVE IN EATING WELL, EATING HEALTHY AND EATING FOR ENERGY.  THERE IS NO BARELY EATING OR EATING JUST WHAT I FEEL LIKE.  IT’S ALL ABOUT FEEDING YOUR BODY THE NUTRIENTS IT NEEDS.
THESE MUFFINS HAVE ESSENTIAL FATS (COCONUT OIL, WALNUTS), THAT ARE HEALTHY FATS YOU NEED.
THEY CONTAIN CINNAMON, A GREAT SPICE I SAY USE ANYTIME! IN YOUR BAKING.
I WOULD EAT THESE MORE IN THE MORNING OR AS AN AFTERNOON SNACK, SINCE THEY CONTAIN BOTH BANANA AND RAISIN.  DO NOT HAVE THIS AROUND YOUR WORK OUT FOR PRE OR POST WORKOUT MEAL BECAUSE OF THE FAT CONTENT.  FAT SLOWS YOUR DIGESTION AND FOR PRE AND POST WORKOUT, YOU WANT SOMETHING MORE QUICK DIGESTING, UNLESS YOU ARE ABOUT TO RUN A MARATHON, THAT IS!

what you’ll need…
4 Eggs
2 Bananas (or 3, depending on how mushy you like it)
1/4 cup Coconut Oil
1/4 tsp. Baking Soda
1/2 cup Unsweetened Almond Milk
3/4 cup Coconut Flour
1/4 cup Chopped Walnuts
3/4 cup Raisins
1/2 cup Unsweetened Shredded Coconut Flakes
 1 Tbsp. Cinnamon



I LOVE CINNAMON.  IT’S SO GOOD FOR YOU.  SLOWS ANY INSULIN SURGE.  PAIR WITH YOUR OATMEAL AND FRUIT IN THE MORNING FOR SLOWING OF DIGESTION= LESS SURGE OF INSULIN.

SPRAY A 12 COUNT MUFFIN PAN WITH EVOO SPRAY.

ADD ALL DRY INGREDIENTS AND BANANAS, MINUS RAISINS AND COCO FLAKES, AND MASH.

IF YOU MASH AGAINST BOTTOM OF BOWL, REALLY MASHES NICELY.

ADD ALL WET INGREDIENTS, RAISINS AND COCO FLAKES AND DOUGH APPEARS LIKE THIS.

FILL SHEET, BAKE ON 350 40-45 MINUTES OR UNTIL DESIRED CONSISTENCY.  SOME LIKE THEIR BAKED BANANA MUFFINS/BREAD LESS COOKED THROUGH OR LESS DRY, SO JUST MONITOR TO YOUR LIKING!

ENJOY THIS HEALTHY TREAT!

    I’m allergic to coconut 😦 but hopefully without them it wont ruin the consistency of the muffins. Thanks for the awesome recipes 🙂
