Paleo Banana Almond-Walnut Muffins

This is a simple recipe for banana nut muffins.  It is grain free, refined sugar free, and takes less than 30 minutes to make.  The only sweetener comes from mashed bananas and a touch of honey.  This is a perfect treat after a long day or a quick snack on the go.  Enjoy!
