Happy Monday! I feel like the weekend went by too quickly, but here we are at the beginning of another week.  Let’s make the most of it! I am excited about my new workout series coming to the blog soon, stay tuned for that, and keep an eye on my YouTube Channel.  I will post a VLog soon introducing the series, and then every week (hopefully) I will be releasing a new at-home workout!


Last week I had some leftover ripened bananas that needed to be used, so I made my fluffy banana pancakes for breakfast, but I still had leftover bananas.  And a sudden desire to make muffins! So I put this recipe for paleo banana chia muffins together and was pleasantly surprised with how they tasted.

These paleo banana chia muffins aren’t just tasty, but they’re healthy too!  The bananas and chia seeds add a healthy amount of fiber, and these are naturally sweetened with honey and applesauce, so no processed sugars!

These are made with cassava flour, so they’re gluten free, grain free and dairy free.  These muffins are also pretty simple to make and didn’t take too much time.  I loved these muffins, and so did my husband.  So much so that I had to put some aside for me in a labeled ziploc bag so that he wouldn’t eat them all and I’d still have some for myself!
