Gluten Free + Paleo Friendly. 

Lisa says “Give these banana, date and walnut protein muffins a try. They are ridiculously easy to make and have no sugar in them, just using the dates to sweeten them and a drizzle of honey on top, as needed. These would be a great addition to your kids school lunch box or a warmed up afternoon tea snack! Put a dollop of almond butter or ricotta cheese on top for the protein and fat boost…delicious!  Can’t quite fathom how something this good can be so good for you!”

2 cups almond meal

1 tsp vanilla extract

2-3 ripe bananas

1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
