³ Description

AS A TREAT: Eat in MODERATION! These muffins are HIGH in calories and fat (omega 6s). While the carb content is low, and I am very much not afraid of fat, it's all about being smart. These are very nutty muffins, and should only be eaten lightly and in moderation! :}

² Ingredients

   

q Directions

dry

- 2 cups pecan pieces
- 1 cup almond meal
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp nutmeg
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp baking soda

wet

- 1 (cage-free) egg
- 2 bananas
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 3 tbsp coconut oil

what to do

- Preheat the oven to 350
- Using a food processor, roughly grind up the pecan pieces so they're still a bit coarse
- Mix together all the dry ingredients in one bowl.
- Scoop out two tbsp of the dry mix and set aside

- In a separate bowl, mash the banamas, add the egg, vanilla extract, and coconut oil. (Note: coconut oil is solid at room temp. If this is the case, heat it just a little in the microwave till liquid, then slowly pour into the mix while stirring)

- Combine the wet and dry ingredients, mixing gently till even. Spoon into muffin tins. Sprinkle the extra dry mix over the top of the muffins.

add the heat

- Bake at 350. Small/Mini muffins for approx. 15 mins, large for 25-30. Or until toothpick comes out clean.

- cage-free eggs are better options than conventional eggs, though conventional ones will work.
