Ingredients Used Within The Walnut Crunch Banana Muffins

Bananas: I recommend using ripe bananas, as they mash better when compared to fresh bananas. Keep them on the counter for a few extra days until they show signs of ripeness via brown spots.

Butter: unsalted, grass fed butter is a great option.

Flour: I prefer using organic flour.

Flax Meal: flax meal is simply ground flax seeds. I love sprinkling flax meal within smoothies, baked goods, and oatmeal – the list goes on! Flax meal contains protein, fiber, and is a great source of omega-3 fatty acids.

Chia Seeds: chia seeds are loaded with nutrients. They contain a good amount of protein, omega-3 fatty acids, and fiber.

Walnuts: walnuts add the perfect crunch to these delicious muffins – add more if you would like! Walnuts are rich in antioxidants and omega-3 fatty acids.

As you can see, these muffins contain nutrient dense ingredients. Feel free to have more than one!

If preferred, change the muffins to a walnut crunch banana bread.

How to Properly Store These Mouth-Watering Muffins

Store the muffins in an airtight container. You may freeze the muffins for up to three months. 

What Should I Pair the Walnut Crunch Banana Muffins with?

These muffins would pair nicely with your choice of a protein source. If you are looking for a quick grab-and-go breakfast, pair this muffin with some Greek yogurt, a hard boiled egg, or some cottage cheese. For a more relaxed breakfast spread, pair the muffin with a crispy bacon avocado breakfast bagel, over easy eggs with sauteed veggies, or the goat cheese sausage egg bake.
