 On-the-Go Breakfast

These Healthy Grab-and-Go Banana Walnut Muffins are one of my favorite quick breakfasts when I am in a hurry. And that’s almost ALL the time!!

Our morning routine is pretty standard. Derek and I get up when we hear Cal through the monitor, aka our “alarm clock”. He is up by 5:45 am daily. We give him his bottle while we both try and get ready. Soon after, Cal begins his morning routine of throwing anything and everything he finds in the bathtub with the water running. As long as I can apply my makeup in peace, he can make any ‘bathtub soup’ he desires. 😆 

If I am lucky enough, we are all ready and fed before 7:00.

If it’s any second past 7 am, these muffins are coming straight out of the freezer into a plastic baggie and out the door with me. I will give Cal some because they are so moist he can easily chew them and I will munch on the rest!

They defrost super quickly so take them with you and eat them within 20 minutes.

If I remember, I will take them out when I wake up so they are defrosted before I leave. Sometimes I will toss them in the toaster oven, only if I’m super early!!

Either way, their small size makes them ideal for our family in the morning.

Healthy Banana Walnut Muffins

These banana walnut muffins are super moist and healthy because they are sugar-free and wheat-free which is also considered gluten-free.

To sweeten these bite-sized muffins up, I used honey, my all-time favorite way to naturally sweeten food.

I also used coconut flour in this recipe. I like it more than almond flour because of the texture as well as tHealthy Grab-and-Go Banana Walnut Muffinshe fact that a little goes a long way! One bag of coconut flour lasts me weeks rather than days.

Important Tip!! Make sure you use brown bananas like the one here! —>

Brown bananas are naturally sweeter so combined with the honey, your muffins will be perfectly sweetened!

Also, I used a mini muffin tin to make a lot of recipes on my blog like these Puff Pastry Breakfast Cups With Honey Dijon Sauce (another delicious breakfast option when you have more time!)Healthy Grab-and-Go Banana Walnut Muffins

You can use any muffin tin size but the larger the tin, the longer the baking time!

Another tip* Don’t place these directly in the tin because they will be tricky to remove. You can either use  a cupcake liner or strip of wax paper underneath to pull your muffins out when they are cool.
