Banana & Almond Meal Muffins with Rawesome Date Caramel

I stumbled upon this recipe on a new Danish blog a few months ago and have been hooked ever since.

These muffins are amazing.

They have a delicious banana and coconut flavor and are grain-free and (almost) sugar-free.

Plus, they’re super easy to make and whip up quickly.

And the best part? They stay fresh and moist for up to 5 days in the refrigerator and freeze great.

How delicious gluten- and grain-free baking can never cease to amaze me.

These muffins take a serious beating to any muffin loaded with sugar and all-purpose flour I’ve ever had.

Give these muffins a try, whether you’re looking for a brunch accessory or a post-workout snack.

I promise you won’t be disappointed!
