I am not sure there is anything better than coffee and a hot banana nut muffin for breakfast - but a typical banana muffin can have nearly 30 grams of sugar in one little muffin!
I tried a couple of recipes for low-carb banana muffins, but oftentimes they would be so dry, no amount of butter could save them. I started experimenting with ingredients and what I learned from making keto blueberry muffins and after several failed attempts I finally came up with the perfect keto banana muffins with walnuts... and we have enjoyed them nearly every day since!
Let me also say if you have not begun using silicon muffin liners, these little things are a game-changer. While you are supposed to eat plenty of fat while on the keto diet, I do not want to use macros to make sure my muffins do not stick!
I grabbed this set of silicon liners off Amazon and have used them dozens of times with no problem! I just rinse them in warm soapy water after each use and they are ready to go next time I bake!
