This week was an unintentional one new food. I was about to work out and had some super ripe bananas, so I googled paleo banana muffin recipes. I’ve been on a wellness journey and started to cut foods out of my diet which cause inflammation in my body. I found this recipe from Paleo Grub….and let me tell you…they were heaven! And they only took five minutes to whip up! I did add a few crushed walnuts in the batter and on top for a little crunch.
It’s ironic though because Emylia, who usually loves trying new foods only took one bite and left this yummy breakfast snack on the table for me to finish.
But Lila, the pickiest of eaters, ate two at a time every day, and asked for them in her lunch all week!
It’s amazing because they are made with bananas, almond butter, eggs, and coconut flour…no dairy, wheat or sugar. I’m super impressed that food so pure can still taste so delicious!

Those look great (and anything that only takes 5 minutes to put together is a winner in my book!). My kids are big muffin/quick bread fans, so we’ll have to try those ones out.
All of my guys are so so SO picky! Everything is new to them haha

I think it’s great your encouraging your kids to try new things! It will help them build an appreciation for healthy foods.
I love paleo baking– great, nutrient dense ingredients. I am in love with almond and coconut flours now!

My children are super picky eaters especially my son due to allergies so I am not sure what I am gonna try with them this week – perhaps hummus.
