Paleo Banana Bread Muffins

We rarely eat bananas in our house.  I think they are high in sugar and limit my intake with them.  Most bananas are 2 fruit servings if you consume just 1.  However, I decided my husband and brother might want a sweet treat to take out in the woods with him.  This Paleo banana bread is grain free and made with coconut flour.  I LOVE coconut flour and the health benefits it carries.

For this recipe you may eliminate 1 tsp of vanilla and replace with 1 tsp almond extract.  My future sister-in-law has a nut allergy, so I made this batch nut free.  You could also add in some pecan or walnut pieces.
