Bite-sized Paleo Banana Bread

A quick life update: I am off on a business trip later tonight (Sunday AEDT 7:20pm) to Perth.

As exciting as that may seem, most of our work will predominately take place in a sleepy, southern town 15 kms outside of the city precinct where I am led to believe that food (let alone nutritional food) will be hard to come by.

And anybody that knows me will tell you: Linda is governed by her stomach. 

The sheer idea of going hangry, stranded in an area where the nearest cafe is likely to be more than a 2 km walk.. absolutely terrifies me.

I can’t emphasize to you; just how much I wish I was exaggerating here. So in an act of despair, or self – pity/preservation, I spent my entire Sunday morning baking.

And anybody that knows me will also tell you: Linda rarely bakes.

So guys, hold onto your socks. Today, I baked myself 36 mini paleo banana and date muffins (throws congratulatory confetti and pats self on back).

I decided to bake these mini bad boys because I wanted something:

  1. Filling, arguably healthy and long-lasting,
  2. Slightly sweet but not (more savoury), as I didn’t want a sickly sweet treat as my go to snack for a week, and;
  3. Easy and quick to make.

The foundation of these delicious treats can be found here, where I subtracted and added ingredients in accordance with what I fancied/ had on hand at the time.

What Ingredients Will You Need:

What Equipment Will You Need:

  • 3 non stick, mini muffin trays (12 muffins)
  • set of measuring spoons and cups
  • a blender
  • a tablespoon (for transferring the banana mixture to your trays)

What You Will Need To Do:

  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees celsius.
  2. Add all of the ingredients for the banana bread to a blender. Blend until combined.
  3. Spoon the banana bread batter evenly into the 3 mini muffin trays.
  4. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes, until bread tests clean.
  5. Allow bread to cool for 10 minutes.
  6. Carefully pop out each muffin and serve!

Now, I must admit that these little snacks are not as delicious as your traditional banana bread that has been immersed in maple syrup and/or sugar. 

But, I personally think that these turned out delightful, and perfect to have as an everyday, breakfast snack – a wonderful nutritious indulgence and minus the guilt!

Let me know if anybody else has tried an alternative of the traditional banana bread, I would love to hear your take.

Until next time, see you in Perth!

Linda, xo
