Gluten Free Banana Muffin Recipe

Gluten Free Banana Muffins

This Gluten Free Banana Muffin recipe uses coconut flour, almond butter, eggs & bananas for the perfect texture. They're dairy free too!

So excited to share my recipe for Gluten Free and Paleo Banana Nut Muffins with you! After much testing, I found a definite winner! These whole-food based muffins are sweetened only with bananas and have a base of almond butter (protein kick!) and coconut flour. Perfect make ahead breakfast, snack, or lunch box treat. Quick tip: you might want to double the recipe because these banana nut muffins are freezer friendly.

Need the muffins to be nut-free? Simply, omit the walnut pieces and sub the almond butter for sunflower seed butter.

    Can you clarify if the recipe uses 1/2 almond butter or almond flour? The description says it uses almond flour but the ingredients say almond butter. Thank.
