Quick & Easy Banana Muffins

I’ve had several favorite peanut butter banana muffin recipes, but I’ve been on a chia seed kick lately! They are an amazing superfood  full of protein, fiber, omega-3 fatty acids, calcium, antioxidants, minerals, and nutrients.  I’ve been putting them in my smoothies, but decided to get a little creative this morning and throw together a recipe for some yummy banana muffins that my 2 year old and I could enjoy!

The chia seeds and coconut oil are completely optional, but they super healthy and beneficial!  They are great ingredients to start incorporating into your daily diets!

  • 3 tbs coconut oil (optional, but strongly encouraged!)

Super easy to make and quick to bake!  These were a big hit with my little man this morning!  We shared two, and he asked for one more so I thought I’d get really fancy and top it off with some Nutella!  YUM!  These definitely won’t last long in this house!
