Warm and comforting with a touch of sweetness and whole grain goodness, these Banana Chip Almond Butter Muffins are a dessert worthy treat healthy enough for breakfast. Once you’ve made a batch, breakfast becomes a breeze.
I know you all want easy so that’s what you’ll get. Besides, trying to figure out just WHAT to eat on a plant-based diet can be confusing enough, right?
Maybe you want to start off the new year with an emphasis on health so you’ve come to the right place. But, I digress. What exactly is it that makes these muffins so delish?
They start off with banana and almond butter with a touch of maple syrup and coconut or date sugar. Add optional non-dairy chocolate chips and/or chopped walnuts and you’re almost there.
This recipe was contributed by Certified Nutrition Counselor, Donna Manquen, who teaches a 12-week program she developed and teaches to students who are mostly referred from physician offices.
She says, “I am constantly tweaking the program based on feedback from students, but the results for those who really commit have been phenomenal.” What a great testimonial to her program!
“When people can cook and eat and feel good and satisfied it makes it easier to continue on the journey and gives them hope! Everyone loves to eat delicious meals and the first thing they fear is missing out on good food. Quite the opposite is what they find in my program. They are now eating the good food!!” This is just what we need.
