Paleo Banana Nut Caramel Muffins. (Gluten/Grain/Dairy/Egg Free)

Paleo Banana Nut Caramel Muffins. (Gluten/Grain/Dairy/Egg Free)

The week of chestnut flour recipes continues.  Tammy from the Healthy Gluten Free Life and I are posting a new recipe using this amazing flour every day.    These Banana Nut Muffins are the real deal.  You can't  go wrong with some added caramel. Best of all, they are both grain and egg free, and even still they are fluffy and tender.  Chestnut flour has a unique flavor that works really well with bananas (and apples in the case of yesterdays Cinnamon Apple Donuts! )

Make sure to pop over to  my friend Tammy's Site: The healthy Gluten Free Life to check out her Pumpkin Snickerdoodles! They look pretty incredible.
