Paleo Banana Bread Muffins

I make this simple recipe for paleo banana bread from the Civilized Caveman at least twice a month with my daughter. It makes an easy breakfast on days when I’m running out the door. It’s high in protein and healthy fats, and very low in sugar. I use ripe bananas to add some flavor. If you’re accustomed to a lot of sugar, you might perceive these as bland. Recalibrate your ‘buds and you’ll enjoy them.


  • 4 ripe bananas, mashed
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/2 cup almond or cashew butter
  • 4 Tb grass fed butter or coconut oil, melted
  • 1/2 cup coconut or almond flour, sifted
  • 1 Tb ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda (I use Bob’s Red Mill)
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • pinch of sea salt


Preheat oven to 350.

Combine bananas, eggs, nut butter and butter. Mix well with a hand held blender. Add the flour, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda, vanilla and salt. Combine well. Line a muffin tin and fill each about 3/4 full with the mixture.  Cook for 30-35 minutes.
