Gluten Free Banana Muffins

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 muffins and these almond flour muffins. This recipe is a reader favorite!

What Makes Almond Flour Muffins Healthy?

  • These easy almond flour muffins are sugar free. Like honey and maple syrup sugar free. 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!!!
  • Paleo and keto if that’s your jam.

How Do They Taste?

Unlike whole wheat muffins, these gluten free banana 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!

What Are the Ingredients?

Main ingredients are:

  • Ripe bananas
  • Eggs
  • Almond flour

Then of course baking powder + soda, cinnamon, vanilla extract and salt. That’s it!

How to Make Almond Flour Banana Muffins

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and spray silicone muffin tin with cooking spray. Set aside.
  2. In a blender or food processor, add bananas, eggs, vanilla, cinnamon, baking soda + powder, salt and process until smooth. paleo banana muffins almond flour
  3. Add almond flour and process just enough to combine. Pause, scrape the walls and process just a bit again to combine. Add chocolate chips and stir with a spatula.  almond flour banana chocolate chip muffins
  4. Using an ice cream scoop, divide batter between 12 openings of previously prepared muffin tin and bake for 30 minutes, or until golden brown and toothpick inserted come out clean. Remove from the oven, let cool 20 minutes and enjoy.

Blender or Food Processor?

I used to say “no” to a food processor. But after so many readers have tried food processor and even hand mixer, I changed to “yes”. Just watch the video below.:)

I noticed no difference in almond flour muffins taste except the appearance. Blending bananas almost into a smoothie consistency ensures no banana lumps and that pillowy soft texture. There might be a few small banana chunks in a food processor batter and the looks is a bit more coarse.

But trust me, not a big deal!

Chocolate Chips Substitute

I like to use mini dark chocolate chips. They distribute more evenly than large ones. To keep these paleo banana muffins really sugar free, try fresh or frozen blueberries, or cacao nibs.

Almond Flour Banana Bread?

Good news – I now have almond flour banana bread recipe on the blog. Hooray! It is different!

You can’t use this muffin recipe and make almond flour banana bread. Because almond banana bread will come out soggy in the middle. Make small almond flour banana breads in a shape of muffins.

  1. Your Almond Bread recipe calls for oil and 1 tsp. Baking Powder. The muffin recipe does not include oil and only asks for 1/2 tsp. of Baking Powder. Couldn’t your bread recipe make a good muffin? What is the different outcome of the two?

  2. So delicious, I like the recipe but added a half teaspoon of pure maple sugar and used extra dark chocolate chips instead. Perfect breakfast!

  3. Absolutely LOVE this recipe!! Perfect texture !!
    I replace the vanilla essence with a heaped tablespoon of raw honey and use walnuts & coconut chips instead of chocolate chips.
    Delicious 😍

  4. I’m on Keto, I won’t use bananas but I’ll use banana extract. How much extract would I need for this recipe? Thanks

  5. The absolute best muffin recipe! I want more recipes like this. I like that it has no added sugar or sugar alcohols except for the dark chocolate chips. Yet these taste great without the chocolate chips as well!!

  6. This came out really well! It wanted a little more sweetness (I used erythritol the second time). Lovely moist dessert muffins that are so good warm and fresh that my husband ate four of them before I could stop him! Oh well, at least they aren’t a full of carbs as regular chocolate chip muffins!

  7. When you say “cool dry place” for storage does that mean they don’t have to be refrigerated?? I planned on putting them in the fridge but forgot! Now I’m wondering if it’s bad!?

  8. These are delicious! I used a kitchen aid mixer which worked great I confess, I did sneak in a small amount of brown sugar- maybe a couple of tablespoons. One if the best recipes I’ve found using almond flour.

  9. I’ve been looking for a naturally sweetened muffin recipe and am so happy I found this one! My husband loves them! Thank you!

  10. Any suggestions to make this into a small cake? Looking to make this into a smash cake for my 1 yr nephew! I love the muffins so wanted to make a no sugar cake for him! Thanks!

    1. Yes, you can. Bake in a cake form a bit longer. Just keep an eye on it. Then I would cool and cut in half. Use whipping cream and fruit or berries.:)

  11. Muffins were good. I made some as muffins with chocolate chips and some as muffin tops with almond slivers. We liked the muffin tops better.

  12. Omg YAAAS!!!!! Absolutely delish!!! Perfect texture and consistency- awesome flavor. Had peanut butter chips on hand instead of chocolate, and they were divine!! Saved the recipe and will certainly make again. I shared my first batch with a few friends and they were a hit!
