Coconut Oil Banana Muffins

Coconut Oil, Sweetened Coconut Flakes, and Bananas make for an amazing breakfast treat. Mmmmm!

Coconut Oil Banana Muffins

Raise your hand if banana bread is as much of a kryptonite food for you as it is for me. Banana bread and I go way back, which is exactly why The Best Banana Bread Recipe was posted in the very early days of this blog. It was one of those recipes that I couldn’t wait to post for all of you to see. Because it’s that good. It yields two medium-sized loaves that always disappear before I can even utter the words: “I just baked banana bread”.

Let’s jump right in, shall we? I have caught the granola-making bug. If you’d asked me a couple of weeks ago, I wouldn’t have considered myself a huge granola fan. I never quite understood the hype and wasn’t even remotely interested. I think the fact that breakfasts used to be more of an afterthought (if even that) to me, might the biggest reason why I just didn’t get granola.

But in my attempts to give the most important meal of the day more attention, I decided to jazz up my Greek yogurt breakfasts with some delicious whole grains. So off I went and purchased a bag of honey almond granola. It didn’t take me very long to consume every last crumb…

And refusing to purchase yet another bag, I decided to make my own. You know, being a food blogger and all. Plus, wanting to be in control of my ingredients and creating granola just the way I like it, gave me more than enough motivation.

Best. Decision. Ever! [Read more…]
