Coconut Flour Banana Nut Muffins

Gluten-Free Banana Nut Muffins

Happy Friday! What are your plans for the weekend? I finally finished painting my office, and now I'm planning to repaint and DIY-ify the bookshelf in there.

Good morning and Happy Monday!! I hope all the Patriots fans out there are having a super day… I am. What a great game, huh? Everyone I watched the game with was rooting for the Seahawks (except one friend who was pity-rooting for the Pats for my benefit, haha), so that just made the victory…
