I really love coming back to old posts and updating the content. It's actually hilarious some of the photos I used to post, but it's always a sweet reminder how far this little blog as come. These almond butter banana muffins are an oldie, but were ripe for an update!
Everyone knows about the love story between banana and peanut butter, but what about its friendlier cousin almond butter? A few years ago (when I was sick), I made the switch off of peanut butter and peanut products, and started making my own almond butter. I now MUCH prefer almond butter and its richer, nuttier flavor. Plus, now that more and more companies are making almond butter cups, I feel like it's getting easier and easier to ditch it all together.
These almond butter banana muffins marry two delicious flavors into one scrumptious treat!
This upgraded recipe is dairy-free and refined sugar free. I personally bake using the King Arthur Gluten Free Flour, which always yields a great result. The sweetness from the banana shines through in this recipe, and is the perfect partner for the nutty almond butter and crunchy almond topping. I personally love them without chocolate chips, but hey, throw a few in if you're inclined!Print
