paleo banana bread muffins

a pile of spotty bananas sat on the counter. a loan fruit fly silently danced in the air, alerting me of the need to use them quickly. if you know me at all, you know that i like to eat my bananas on the green side. once they spot they are suitable only for baking at my house. i already had eggs in the oven so banana-something was going to be added to our dinner. banana-what, though? a quick pinterest search yielded a few interesting recipes. after looking at each one i landed on this one. the original recipe made seven muffins. seven. are you kidding me? it's not even worth getting the mixer bowl dirty for that. much less the fact that there would be no leftovers for sunday morning breakfast. after enlarging and tweaking, the recipe looked like this:

paleo banana bread muffins

6 bananas
6 eggs

in your stand mixer, thoroughly beat bananas and eggs. then add:

4 1/2 C almond flour
1/3 C flaxseed meal
1 1/2 T baking soda
1 1/2 T baking powder
1 t - 1 T cinnamon, depending on how cinnamony you like things
1 t nutmeg
1/2 t kosher salt
3 T honey
3 T butter, melted
2 T vanilla
1 C chopped walnuts

mix everything until well incorporated. divide batter between 18-24 muffin pans. you will need to grease...even with silicone bakeware. i have individual silicone baking cups from ikea and normally do not have to grease. these muffins stuck...worse the first day when they were still warm (hey, we were impatient!) than the next day. bake at 375 for 20-25 minutes. allow to cool for 10-15 minutes before eating.
