Lone Star Paleo: Sweet Plaintain Muffins

plaintains

Are you feeling lazy? I sure am. I didn’t even bother putting on a bra today. FREEDOM!! 

On days like this, I just want to watch 90s movies. I’m well aware that getting all nostalgic over this particular decade is a little embarrassing, but I could watch the following movies on repeat forever: Hook, You’ve Got Mail, Encino Man, Home Alone…there are others I’m forgetting. Or not mentioning out of pure shame. (cough,cough,masterpiecetheatreprideandprejudicewithcolinfirth,cough,cough)

 

This muffin recipe is absolutely perfect for when you are feeling lazy and don’t want to put much effort into your snack making.  But otherwise, it’s a subtly sweet muffin made with easy-peasy ingredients. Add chocolate chips if you’re looking for more of a dessert.

So go ahead! Pop these in the oven, crawl back into bed and scroll through Facebook while you wait. Oh look! Another passive aggressive status update! Yay.

4 Thoughts on “Lone Star Paleo: Sweet Plaintain Muffins

  1. Loving this recipe, Anne! And, you know…I’m definitely going to stir in some chunks of chocolate into these off-the-chain deliciously moist paleo muffins! Oh yeah…I’m with you on the Colin Firth thing. I’m completely enamored. Speaking of the ’90s, was just listening to “Only Wanna Be with You” by Hootie & the Blowfish. Love that song and all the ’90s memories associated with it! Hopeless romantics we are, LOL. Pinning! xo

      Hahaha! Nobody understands my love for the 90s, so I’m glad you can relate! I went through another Hootie phase last year. Right now I’m really into this (band? singer?) named Rhye. It sounds a lot like Sade. And if I HAD chocolate chips, I’d definitely stir those babies in. EVERYTHING is better with chocolate. :)
