Paleo Pumpkin Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

Paleo Pumpkin Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins_700x366

This is officially my LAST pumpkin recipe of the….month of October….maybe. 🙂

My final attempt to win the Fast Paleo, pumpkin recipe contest. I WILL (trying to stay confident) win a pumpkin carving set to carve my very first pumpkin, EVER! Will probably need some help…any takers.

A couple things:

1.) Make sure your bananas are super ripe. The more ripe, the easier on your body AND most importantly, the healthier.

2.) If you want a sweeter muffin, add 3 or 4 Tablespoons (Tbsp.) of honey!

Here’s the recipe:
