Tips for Perfect Paleo Banana Muffins

Choosing the Right Bananas

  • Ripe Bananas: Ensure your bananas are ripe with brown spots for optimal sweetness and moisture.
  • Mash Thoroughly: Mash bananas well to avoid lumps in the batter.

Ingredient Substitutions

  • Egg Alternatives: To make a vegan version, use flax eggs (1 tablespoon of crushed flaxseed and 3 tablespoons of water per egg).
  • Sweeteners: Adjust the honey or maple syrup amount based on your sweetness preference.

Baking Tips

  • Do Not Overmix: Mix the batter until combined to avoid dense muffins.
  • To check doneness, stick a toothpick into the middle; it should come out mostly clean or with a few crumbs.
