Introduction

I love carbs and baked goods. Who doesn't? The problem with eating (mostly) paleo is that you can't have grains, so baking can be a bit difficult. I tried a lot of muffin recipes, and then finally decided to invent my own. And it was awesome! I tried a few variations, and this was the best. These muffins are moist and sweet enough that any grain-eating individual probably won't even know that they're paleo! The only problem with them is that you might have trouble not eating them all!

Anyhow, I hate recipes where the author goes on forever about the recipe's back story and you basically have to read a book to get to the recipe, so let's get to it!

Tips

Couldn't find a paleo chocolate-chip option on Spark People, so nutritonal information may vary.

In separate bowl, mash bananas (I use a fork) and mix in remaining wet ingredients.
Slowly stir the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients until mixed well.

Let cool, then eat!
