A handful of California walnuts is a versatile snack and can satisfy any taste preference, from savory to sweet.​ Regardless of your flavor preference, walnuts are the only nut to provide an excellent source of the plant-based omega-3, ALA. California walnuts also contain protein (4g/oz) and fiber (2g/oz)! If you’re interested, you can find more information on just how healthy walnuts are here:

I’m not sure why, but banana bread is trending, big time. In an time where we’re all home, who isn’t craving comfort foods? I’ve never created a gluten free banana bread for the blog yet, so this recipe is sadly overdue. I hope you love it! It’s easy to make, super moist, and freezes like a dream. You could definitely make it in a loaf pan if you’d prefer a bread, but I’ve always preferred muffins. I think they’re easier to eat 😉

Next time I make these, I’m definitely adding chocolate. Don’t know what I was thinking, not adding a handful of chocolate chips to this recipe! You could also add in some grated carrots or raisins for extra vitamins. I would even go so far as to swap the banana for carrots entirely! Carrot Cake muffins? Oh yes. Those would be divine. Whatever you’re in the mood for, this classic recipe will live up to it!
