Banana, Coconut & Peanut Butter Muffins

Jeannette Jackson

Energy-boosting banana & peanut butter muffins

Made with brown rice flour, these yummy muffins don’t take you on an energy roller coaster as refined foods do!

High in fibre, brown rice flour is an excellent source of immune-boosting selenium, manganese for bone health, and vitamin B, which helps the body produce energy, and is great for healthy hair, skin and muscle growth.

Not only do bananas add potassium, but they also add a boatload of antioxidants, plus they help to naturally regulate your blood sugar, whilst coconut and dairy-free milk are rich in vitamins and minerals and contain no lactose.

Peanut butter is packed with protein, so it keeps you feeling fuller for longer, whilst also helping muscle development. It's heart-healthy, with most of its fat being of the unsaturated variety, rich in fibre and antioxidants, and helps boost your energy.

This combination of ingredients creates a slow release of glucose into your blood stream, keeping you energised for longer.

Topping these delicious muffins with medjool dates is like sprinkling them with essential amino acids, as well as minerals such copper, potassium, zinc, magnesium, calcium phosphorous, and iron.

A sinfully scrumptious snack that's actually full of goodness, what more could you ask for?
