This is an especially good recipe for those with nut allergies seeking an alternative to almond flour versions so frequently found in Paleo and gluten-free cookbooks.
We have to be careful with all baked goods, even gluten-free versions, because of my daughter’s anaphylactic peanut allergy. We do most of our own baking, and I am always on the lookout for quick, tasty, healthy alternatives to our old favorites. This recipe for Paleo banana chocolate chip muffins is a perfect example.
These Paleo banana chocolate chip muffins are the result of trial and error and a combination of several recipes we tried.

These freeze beautifully! We take them out as needed and heat in the microwave for 15-20 seconds. They taste fresh-baked.
We eat these paleo banana chocolate chip muffins most often as an afternoon snack.
We freeze the whole batch each time and take them out as we need them, adding to the lunchbox frozen, knowing it will thaw in time for snack time at aftercare, or tossing in the microwave for a few seconds when we’d like a warm one on the spot.
These tasty little morsels have become a favorite among family and friends. Anyone I have shared this recipe with loves it. My dad, who does not tolerate baked goods well (causes blood sugar imbalance) eats these almost daily with no issues.
