Because I didn't really do anything earth-shattering in the exercise category today, I wanted to try to whip up something healthy. I try to steer clear of grains as much as possible and wanted to create something that would be a good go-to for breakfast. It's not uncommon for people to default to refined carbs like toast, bagels, or sugary cereals for their morning meal. These muffins might be a good alternative for people who are looking for a higher protein or gluten free breakfast. Check out the recipe below.
Grain-Free Banana Breakfast Muffins
yields 16 muffins
4 c. almond meal
3 ripe bananas
2 eggs, lightly beaten
3/4 c. low fat Greek yogurt
1 tbsp water
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp cinnamon
Preheat oven to 325. Grease muffin tins, or use paper muffin cups. In large bowl, combine almond meal, baking soda and cinnamon. In a separate medium-size bowl, mash bananas. After bananas are a creamy texture, add eggs, yogurt and water. Combine wet ingredients to the dry ingredients in the large bowl. Mix well. Fill muffin tins half way. Bake for 20 to 22 minutes. Let cool and enjoy.
