We are on a muffin kick lately! These Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins (paleo and grain-free) are SO easy, so warm and comforting in the cold winter months, freezable to re-heat on busy mornings and they help keep me on track with getting back into my paleo groove. I always find myself coming back to this diet when I need to lower inflammation, help out my cycle, prep for pregnancy, lower my intake of sugar (preach) or drop a couple of pounds.
The last breakfast recipe I posted were my Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins, so naturally, there is a paleo muffin thing happening in our home.
Other muffin favorites lately have been my Carrot Zucchini Muffins, my Blackberry Almond Muffins and not techincally a muffin but my yeast-free cinnamon rolls keep showing up on the weekends ;)
This was my first time using a recipe with JUST cassava flour (I know, I'm so late to that game) - I've usually mixed it with other flours, but today I made a simple cassava muffin sweetened only with bananas and a dash of vegan chocolate chips.
In our taste test, I thought the family may find them to be not sweet enough but the consensus was that everyone approved and my toddler ate FOUR of them before lunchtime.
So, they'll be hanging out on the meal plan long term.
Enjoy the recipe below and if you make a bunch, freeze some and invite me over for a warm mug of tea because I'm craving some girl time in my busy schedule and am always down for good convo and muffins.
Also! If you're wanting these completely refined-sugar free and fully paleo compliant, nix the chocolate chips and add some fresh or dried berries, nuts or raisins.

It's been a minute since I've posted and I though I'm sorry for being MIA for a little while, it was nice to focus on family time for the holidays
I've felt extremely under the weather for a couple of weeks, so work has been hard to get through and we've hosted friends and family for the past three weeks and I've literally been sleeping around twelve hours a night to recoup.
Christmas was beautiful and was spent surrounded by Mr. Charming's and I entire family, celebrating our Saviors birth and time together. We also gave some beautiful gifts and received some beautiful gifts and enjoyed PLENTY of good, decadent holiday food. Paleo for the most part, I did indulge in some grain and sugary treats that I am now looking to detox.
Enter oats. Although not Paleo, I've learned that my body does well with gluten-free oats to help aid my digestion.
Having fallen in love with SoyNutButter's Chocolate that I used for my Double Chocolate
1 C. Gluten-Free Oats
1/4 C. Dairy-Free Milk (I used coconut)
1/4 C. SoyNut Butter (I used the unsweetened)
Layer oats, SoyNut Butter and Milk in Mason Jar, place in refridgerator overnight.
In the morning, top with sliced banana and strawberry. Enjoy.
What are your favorite ways to make overnight oats? These are also a great treat to pack up and take post-Christmas shopping. Throw in a cooler bag with spoons, a thermos of coffee and extra fruit for a complete breakfast.

Nosh & Nurture was born of this journey I am on to better the health of myself, my family and those around me. What started as a simple compilation of recipes has grown to a all-around lifestyle journal with ways to incorporate organic products into your home, pantry and beauty cabinet. I also include stories on pregnancy, new motherhood, travel, Proverbs 31 marriage, and spiritual health, as I am a Christian who couldn't do any of this without my Lord & Savior Jesus Christ. For more of my story you can click here.
All recipes are gluten-free and dairy-free with a lot of soy-free, grain-free, sugar-free options.
