Banana Nut Muffins

I recently adapted this recipe from one I found online. I know that baking soda is not GAPS legal, but I wish it was--the recipe is slightly lighter with it. (Maybe the same effect could be achieved by whipping the egg whites?) Either way, though, the flavor is pretty amazingly decadent after spending two years eating no fruit!!

One recipe makes twelve muffins, or one round springform 10" pan cake.

3 bananas, medium-large
1/3 c. pitted dates
5 eggs
1/2 cup butter (or coconut oil)
1/2 cup coconut flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
