Banana Nut Muffins

During the month of Ramadan it is really important to wake before sunrise to hydrate and have a proper breakfast. This  pre-dawn meal is called ‘Suhoor’, in Arabic. 

Waking in the wee hours of the morning and trying to figure out what to eat can be a challenge.


There’s always cereal (bad choice as most cereals are full of sugar=crash!), pancakes, waffles, eggs and toast! But, if I am completely honest, I really don’t feel like cooking a full breakfast at 2 in the morning.

When planning for Suhoor, I think of foods that will keep be full and are nutritious! Here are some great ideas 24 Easy Ramadan Recipes That Will Keep You Full

I had some over-ripe bananas that I wanted to make into a nutritious, easy to enjoy Suhoor, so I came up with these Banana Nut Muffins :) 


I choose to use coconut flour and almond flour. You can substitute whole wheat four for the coconut flour if you don’t have coconut flour on hand. You may also wish to add 1/4 cup chopped nuts into the muffin batter :)
