Almond Flour Banana Muffins

Low carb and gluten free Almond Flour Banana Muffins Recipe that is entirely sugar free, not even honey. These blender muffins melt in your mouth and kids love them!

I purchased a Costco size bag of almond flour and have been playing around with it for a month. 5 lbs gone and our family got 2 new staple muffins we can’t get enough of – almond flour muffins and these almond flour banana muffins. Unlike whole wheat muffins, these gluten free muffins melt in your mouth. Their texture and feel reminds me of a marshmallow or a sponge cake. I’m not the one to post bitten food pictures but in this case it was absolutely unavoidable step. SO SOFT AND GOOD!

Another super appealing aspect of almond flour banana muffins is that they are sugar free. Like honey and maple syrup sugar free. Well, there are chocolate chips but you can replace them with blueberries or cacao nibs. Main ingredients are ripe bananas, eggs and almond flour. Not even a drop of oil. Isn’t it amazing?!

Nutrition wise these muffins beat any as well – low carb, high protein and full of fiber. Eat one and you are full without even minor bloating. My kids love these and yours will too!!!

And last but not least, why blender? Because blending bananas almost into a smoothie (an egg one) ensures no banana lumps and that pillowy soft texture. I tried with mashed banana and it is not the same experience.

  1. These Almond Banana Muffins are amazing. Everyone who’s eaten this muffin wants the recipe and I’ve made them many times already for my friends and family. One of the best banana muffin recipes ever – quick and so easy. Thank you for this sugar free, gf, df, recipe. Love, Love, Love it.

  2. Very good muffin recipe. I did use a mix of almond and coconut flour and ground flax instead of strictly almond flour, and the muffins turned out fine. Thanks for sharing with us.

    1. Um, I haven’t tried. Sorry don’t know. I suspect you I could if you increase baking time but no idea how much longer. Willing to experiment?:)

  3. Olena, your almond flour banana muffins have melted in the mouths of my family within a few hours. Thank you!
