These banana muffins are completely AIP compliant using green banana flour and tigernut flour. They make a great on-the-go snack OR have one for breakfast on those days when you just need a muffin!
Before AIP, I was kind of a muffin addict. During university, you would often find me in the morning ordering a muffin and coffee from Tim’s or Starbucks.
Oh how times have changed!
Although my diet is different now, I still crave a muffin for breakfast or snack every now and then. But nowadays, sipping on a matcha or tea latte with an AIP compliant muffin (rather than one filled with refined sugar and bad fats) is more my style.
I created these banana muffins because I wanted a recipe that was simple to throw together. My morning glory muffins are great and I loooove that they include veggies, but they do take a little more effort.
These banana muffins, on the other hand, will make you feel like your baking a regular old muffin! But instead of using wheat flour, you’ll be using a few AIP compliant flours.
This is really becoming one of my fave flours! I’ve used it in both my oatmeal raisin cookies and fudgy avocado brownies! The flour is high in potassium and other vitamins and minerals found in bananas. Annnnd it’s a source of resistant starch, helping to keep those blood sugar levels in check!
Now if you’ve been following me for awhile you’ll know I’ve used this flour quite a bit. Why do I love this flour? It can be used in so many ways!
It really is super versatile and again, it is a source of resistant starch, so won’t spike your blood sugar!
