SUPER EASY Paleo Cacao-nib Muffins!

In my opinion there is a difference between things that are “good for you” and things that are “healthy.” These muffins are healthy, meaning they have wholesome ingredients and real food. When I say things are “good for you” it means they have something your body will use to fuel itself, like protein…or a protein and a carb, or some sort of protein plus something else. For example, my version of cookie dough is healthy, but the pumpkin chicken curry is good for me. Make sense? So yes, these muffins are healthy but eating one is not suitable for a meal replacement or snack replacement. A yummy treat after dinner, yes. Or to satisfy that craving, yes.

That being said…

recipe from:

(make approx. 6-8 muffins depending on size of muffin tin)

  • 2 medium banans
  • 1 cup almond butter (or peanut if not paleo)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tbsp honey (optional – I use)
  • 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 dash vanilla extract
  • appropriate amount of cacao nibs for the number of muffins you’ll be making (mini chocolate chips if not paleo)


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Lightly grease your muffin pan.
  3. Put all ingredients into a blender except the cacao nibs (if using) and blend until well mixed.
  4. Stir in cacao nibs.
  5. Pour batter into muffin pan.
  6. Drop a couple cacao nibs on top of each muffin.
  7. Make 13-15 minutes, depending on size (less for smaller muffins).
  8. Toothpick test to check if done.
  9. Let cool, serve with a glass of almond milk and enjoy!

*Muffins will pop up quite a bit when baking but will settle while cooling.
