Banana Cinnamon Cassava Flour Muffins

Who doesn’t love a delicious muffin? I know I used to love muffins before radically changing my health and my diet, but they weren’t the healthy kind I make for my family today. You know the muffins I am talking about. The ones you find at a bakery that are loaded with sugar, carbs, and of course, inflammatory gluten, and sometimes dairy. While I have cut things like muffins out of my diet long ago, I have come up with a ton of healthier swaps for myself, and my family to enjoy.

This week, I wanted to share a banana cinnamon muffin recipe with you that uses my absolute favorite cassava flour brand. I use Otto’s cassava flour in this recipe to make them gluten-free, grain-free, paleo, Optimal Reset Diet, and Whole-30 approved.  They also taste super similar to traditional muffins since the mashed bananas keep them from drying out. I like to make a big batch on the weekends, and freeze them to use in my kid’s lunchboxes or served with an egg for breakfast.
