Egg-free, Coconut-free, Nut-free Banana Muffins

Paleo baking can be a challenge when you have multiple food allergies. But don’t despair! Even if you’re avoiding eggs, nuts and coconut, you can still bake up some delicious treats and this easy-to-make Paleo muffin recipe is proof of that!

This healthy nut-free banana muffins recipe is also egg-free and coconut-free. Co-staring with bananas is sunflower seed butter, which adds a pleasing and nutty flavor to these banana muffins, without the use of actual nuts. If you don’t have a nut allergy and have another type of nut butter on hand, go ahead and use it. (All nut and seed butters are interchangeable in this recipe.)
