BAKE ME: Whole Wheat Coconut Flour Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

WHO IS EXCITED FOR FRIDAY?! It is only 4 days away!

Friday aka jeans day is my favorite day of the week.  Everyone who knows me, knows that wearing jeans to work makes me giddy. Who wouldn’t want to wear denim to their office. In honor of jeans day I try to bring in a tasty snack to the office once a month. This month it was some new banana chocolate chip muffins. I was at Trader Joe’s doing my grocery shopping and I saw coconut flour. I decided to try it.  The results were delicious. Hope you enjoy these as much as my co-workers did!
