        no need to roast almonds, they will toast during cooking. My muffins were fluffy until I stopped to put the almonds on.

          Can you use a banana instead of the banana extract?

            Bananas are high in carbs. Use extract

          Any chance someone can fix the nutritional info on this? I made them yesterday and now I'm not sure what to record on my food journal. They are awesome by the way. 😍

            Something is now wrong with the carbs and calories calculations. Recipewriter, please recheck this recipe immediately!. Total carbs are used in the recipe carb calculation when it should be recipe net carbs, which comes to 14.4 for recipe and thus 1.2 net carbs per muffin. Total calories for the recipe ingredients comes to 1515, so 126.25 calories per muffin. I have no idea how they calculated 11,000+ and 994

              Great Substitute to your normal banana nut muffins. I left out the chia seeds but they were still great!!!!

                Wondering why they wouldn't just alter the recipe to say serving is 2 muffins instead or 1 3/4.... are you meant to just save a quarter of a muffin Till the next day?

                      Other than the expected grittiness from the almond flour, OMG THEY ARE GOOD!!!

                          Delicious! I didn’t have banana extract so I made them without it and they were still delicious!

                            Pretty easy to make and delicious. They were a tad bit sweet for me so I'll use less sweetener next time. But I will be adding this recipe to my vault! Thank you

                              These are good Mine only made 10 Next time I’m putting less sweetener, my 6year old and I both agree they’re too sweet.

                                    My whole family loves these. They were easy to make and stores well in the freezer. I recommend making a double batch.

                                        Can I make these without a food processor? I have a small blender. Would that work?

                                          It's just a way to mix everything well. Make sure it's fully blended

                                          I love all the reviews! It really helps. Funny thing is, the desserts have TONS of reviews, salads, hardly any! Well, I did something different with this recipe: I deleted the banana extract and half the eggs and replaced them with - a banana! Bananas are high carb, but when each serving is only 1/12 of the recipe, what’s the harm? I adjusted my macros accordingly and the result was delish! Plenty of banana flavor lol! BTW, recipe calls for 3/4 cup Swerve, I used 1/2 cup and it was way sweet. Maybe because I don’t each much sugar to start with. Next time I’m reducing the Swerve to 1/3 cup!
