Gooey Goodness: 5-Ingredient Banana Nut Muffins

5-Ingredient Vegan, Gluten-Free Banana Nut Muffins

Five ingredients. Five minutes to make. And just twenty-five minutes til you’re jamming an ooey, gooey banana nut muffin into your mouth.

Yep, it’s that easy. Mix these five vegan, gluten-free ingredients together and bake for a chewy, moist-in-the-middle treat. The coconut flour and lack of baking powder means these are a little dense and chewy with a soft center, so get ready for some serious lip-smacking action.

And the people have spoken. I served these babies at brunch earlier this week – everyone was a fan, and no one seemed to mind that they weren’t as fluffy or bread-like as typical muffins. Plus, the health factor earned them major points. #schwing Enjoy!
