Best paleo recipe that I've tried for ANYTHING. Totally delicious!!! Moist and tasty. I brought these over to a brunch with a bunch of non-paleos for my brother to try (he seems sensitive to wheat). They were snatched up by everyone and scarfed quickly (all non-paleo folks). I will definitely be making them again this week. I thought I might take them to work in the morning for a quick breakfast this week, but they are almost all gone! They look like a bran muffin but they are scrumptious! SO MOIST!
Delicious. Tastes very much like a GOOD bran muffin. I call it carrot muffin meets banana bread. I substituted a GF flour mix for the almond flour since that is what I had readily on hand. Worked wonderfully! Next time I intend to use just almond flour as the recipe states. That can only be better.<br/><br/>UPDATE 5/20/13: Made with almond flour as the recipe stated, but substituted 1/2 cup of applesauce for one of the bananas and olive oil for the coconut oil. (Again, it's what I had on hand.) I can't rave enough. this time I used a silicone muffin pan for 12 and a metal mini-muffin pan for the rest of the batter. The mini-muffins took 20 minutes exactly. The silicone pan took 40 min. Couldn't ask for better! Thanks for sharing!
These are amazing. I made them exactly according to the recipe. The are lightly sweet and have the texture of a bran muffin. I love them warmed up about 30 seconds in the microwave and then served with butter. They freeze perfectly. They fill a huge need in my low carb diet. If you love low carb but miss the occasional muffin for breakfast with your coffee...this is it!!!
