Coconut flour banana spice muffins

Whether you’re making these for yourself or for little ones, they are a wonderful addition to breakfast with a smoothie or an afternoon power snack. I make them “mini” size so they are perfect for little hands and then you have no food guilt (not that you should anyhow) when you eat three or four of them.

  3. Place batter into muffin tin cups or grease a muffin tin.
