Almond and Banana Muffins


Piece of life

I told you some weeks ago about my love for peanut butter. Well, I let myself be tempted to try almond butter and, unfortunately, it didn’t convince us [but that’s just a matter of taste].

So, here I am with a jar of almond butter that nobody wanted to eat. But out of the question to waste it out! So I decided to find a recipe to use it.

My advice

When you don’t like a product, and you don’t want to consume it as it is, look for a recipe to prepare it differently.

About the almond and banana muffins

So, I looked for a recipe to use my almond butter, and I told myself that a muffin recipe for my kids’ snack should fit well. So, I decided to try out the muffin recipe from Del’s cooking twist. The original recipe is sugar-free, I changed it a bit, and the result is delicious. Soft and tasty muffins, rich in fibres and low in sugar, are perfect for the whole family.

My suggestions

For another snack idea based on nut butter, I suggest you try my ultra-fast peanut butter cookies with only 3 ingredients.
