No egg Apple, Banana and Nut Muffins [Dairy free, Gluten free, Grains free, Sugar free]

I came across this recipe in one of the many free ebooks downloaded when I first started my Paleo journey.  The Paleo Coconut Flour Dessert recipes hardly piqued my interest until much later in my journey, this is partly due to my dislike of baking exclusively with coconut flour.  Going through my Cloud Reader contents today I was pleasantly surprise to come across a wealth of Gluten free baking and cooking recipes and decided to try this one as it held much promise.
Boy oh boy…what the recipe method promised according to the ingredients and what the end pre-baking mix looked like were too different mixes all together.
The recipe without the picture promised a biscuit dough, for crisp biscuits.  Following this recipe to the letter produced a muffin mix.  So without wasting the ingredients or my heart-in-it excited efforts, or wanting to alter the flour mix in any way, I went ahead and baked 6 muffins.

It’s a fairly simple and quick recipe with minimum ingredients for those who stock up on Paleo essentials and a treat that you may also carry with you to a coffee date or a tea party for guilt free muffin eating, this recipe produced a light, very moist and slightly nutty textured worth-a-bake treat for those who want to try a no egg muffin recipe.

It’s a fairly simple and quick recipe with minimum ingredients for those who stock up on Paleo essentials and are looking forward to making an egg-free muffin. I cannot guarantee how it stores, but I would imagine up to 5 days in the refrigerator in a well sealed container will work well.
