Chocolate Chip Banana Nut Muffins

As a nursing mama, I love to have something quick and healthy to grab first thing when I wake up in the morning.

Having something to grab first thing in the morning after that early morning feeding holds me over until I have time to make a bigger breakfast for both my toddler and I when she wakes up a couple hours later.

While that something quick doesn’t necessarily have to be in the form of a muffin, it definitely makes the early hours a little bit more bearable knowing I have a delicious muffin waiting for me after little man is done eating. I am usually STARVING right after that.

Even if you aren’t nursing, these muffins are great for anyone needing a quick grab and go breakfast or would make a great snack. They are gluten free, dairy free and paleo friendly! If you have any nut allergies, these muffins would be good without the nuts as well.

I adapted an original recipe from Elana’s Pantry just slightly to create a healthy version of my all time favorite muffin/bread recipe combo, chocolate chip and banana’s.

Enjoy!
