Recipe Benefits

  • Allergy-friendly and suitable for many dietary preferences. They’re gluten-free, grain-free, and dairy-free!
  • Great for meal prep! These Almond Flour Banana Muffins are a breeze to make. You don’t even need a mixer which means one less thing to wash. Simply add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and you’ve got muffin batter.
  • They’re a healthier alternative to curb that sweet craving. Bananas add natural sweetness which means they only need a small amount of maple syrup for ample sweetness.

Ingredients

  • Almond flour adds structure without any flour or grains! Almond flour is the same as almond meal, but uses ground almonds to a much finer consistency. Almond flour is low-carb and replaces all purpose flour or wheat flour in this recipe. See my article about How to Substitute Almond Flour for Regular Flour.
  • Walnuts pair perfectly with the banana flavor plus it adds delicious crunch. You can substitute the walnuts with chocolate chips if you are a chocolate lover.
  • Bananas sweeten up the muffins naturally and give them banana flavor without too much added sugar. The bananas also add moisture and replace the need for coconut oil, milk, or butter in the muffins.
  • Maple syrup is a great natural sweetener that is perfect when you’re cutting back on refined sugars. I normally love using coconut sugar, but the maple syrup is the liquid sweetener for this recipe. See my list of the best sugar substitutes when you’re watching your sugar intake.
  • Egg adds lightness to the muffins. See the recipe card for a vegan substitution.
  • Ground cinnamon adds depth of flavor.

Recipe Steps

How to make almond flour banana muffins.

Step One

Preheat the oven and spray a muffin tin with nonstick cooking spray. Set aside.

In a large bowl, whisk together the almond flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, sea salt, and walnuts then set aside.

Please see the recipe card at the end of this post for the exact ingredients and measurements.

Step Two

In a separate bowl, combine the mashed bananas, maple syrup, egg, and vanilla extract.

Step Three

Stir and then pour the wet ingredient banana mixture into the dry ingredients.

Step Four

Stir the batter and then divide between the wells of the muffin pan.

Bake about 25 minutes or until the tops of the muffins turn golden brown.

Let the muffins cool in the muffins cup for 10 minutes then remove from the muffin cup and enjoy!

These almond flour muffins are great served warm or at room temperature.

I hope this healthy muffin recipe gets added to your list of great recipes.

Recipe Tips

  • Store any leftover muffins in a covered airtight container on the countertop for 2 days or in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.
  • Make sure you use ripe bananas! As a banana ripens its starch converts to sugar which not only makes it easier to digest but creamier and sweeter for muffins. Unripe bananas taste chalky and flavorless.
  • You can use muffin liners instead of nonstick spray, if you prefer.
  • For another healthy recipe using almond flour, try these Almond Flour Banana Pancakes. I also like this recipe for Keto Almond Flour Pancakes.

Recipe FAQs

Can I freeze these banana muffins?

Yes wait until they’re completely cool and carefully place in a gallon size ziptop freezer bag. Use a sharpie to date the bag and freeze for up to 2 months.

Can I substitute the walnuts?

Yes if you don’t like walnuts or don’t have any in the pantry that’s okay. Pecans or almonds work great too. You could also add chocolate chips or raisins if you like. Make sure to check labels for dairy if you add chocolate chips.

Can these paleo banana muffins be made vegan?

Yes, you can replace the regular egg with a flax egg to make this recipe plant-based and vegan.
