Paleo Birthday Banana Muffins

These are low sugar grain free banana muffins I made for my niece Malori's birthday back in September (Sorry I haven't blogged in so long!  I've missed you!)  They were definitely a hit!  The cashew butter makes them extra decadent but if you can't find any, substitute almond butter and they will turn out just fine.  The best part about these muffins is that they are the perfect grab and go snack for any time of the day.  We ate them for breakfast.  We ate them after lunch.  We ate them for dessert.  And because they are gluten free, grain free and low sugar; we ate them guilt free!

Happy Birthday to you!  Happy Birthday to you!  Happy Birthday to Malori, Happy Birthday to you!

3 overripe bananas, mashed
1c cashew butter
1/4c honey
1/3c butter
3 large eggs
1c almond flour
pinch salt
1tsp baking soda

1. Preheat oven to 350F.
2. Beat eggs in a large bowl, add all other ingredients and mix well.
3. Using an ice cream scooper, scoop batter into a cupcake pan lined with cupcake liners until about 3/4 of the way full.
4. Bake in the oven for about 25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean and they feel a bit firm to the touch.
5. Let cook to room temp before serving.  Even better when chilled.  Store in the fridge.
