Flourless Protein Banana Nut Muffins

So… as usual, I had a couple of bananas going to mush, and needed to use them.  Plus, I didn’t have anything for breakfast prepared for this week, and figured some muffins were in order.  I know … it’s been like 2 weeks since you’ve seen a banana muffin post and you were totally jones-ing for one.  Here ya go!

Surprisingly, these turned out really good.  I was shocked.  I think these are the best flourless muffins/bread I’ve made to date.  They are super moist and light, yet the walnuts add texture and density.  Plus, walnuts are super good for you… so Bonus!

The batter is a bit runny which was a concern, but I trusted that they would bake ‘ok’, and they did!  WooHoo!

Difficulty Level: Easy Peasy
