Quick Banana Sweetened Paleo Muffins

Ever wonder if its possible to make a savory treat without any added sugar other than fruit? Well, your wondering can stop now! These muffins, though not overwhelmingly sweet, satisfy the craving for a treat while keeping the carbs low and the sugar even lower.

The dark chocolate chunks add a nice chocolaty bite and give the muffins an added feel of decadence. My husband says they taste ever so slightly “hearty” with a luscious finish (don’t you love his romantically poetical description?!).

One of my favorite things about these lill’ nuggets is that not only do they taste yummy, they are also chalk full of protein. With 6 eggs, each regular sized muffin has 1/2 an egg. Doesn’t sound like much, but compared to a normal muffin recipe that touts only 1-2 eggs, it’s a whole heck of a lot more.

Because they are made with coconut flour, they pack a good punch of fiber as well. No sugar, lots of protein, high fiber. WIN WIN WIN I’d say!

 

These are a great grab n’ go breakfast option with a matcha latte or a cup of joe. They also work as a nice after dinner treat. My favorite way to eat them is with some Kerry Gold Grass-Fed butter. Delish!
