Just found a simple and super tasty solution for my baking and sweet cravings. A super simple Homemade Almond Flour Banana Muffins recipe. Made with no refined sugars and healthy ingredients. Also a fantastic gluten free option for families to enjoy!
Homemade Almond Flour Banana Muffins
With the beginning of the fall season, I am really getting in the mood for baking. Another pretty good reason for my sweet cravings is the fact that I am expecting my second child, so I am limiting my sugar intake to try to keep mom and baby as healthy as possible.
I had some Almond Flour and two very ripe bananas so I thought ok let me try to make some muffins and use honey instead of refined sugar. What I did was I quickly looked at a vegan recipe for banana muffins and changed the ingredients a little bit. Took me about 5 minutes of preparation and 20 minutes of baking, and OMG these homemade banana almond flour muffins came out so delicious! Sweet, moist and nutty…….so yummy in addition to being on the healthy side!
The bananas in this recipe really help with the sweetness, just make sure to use very ripe bananas. Bake them in a muffin tin and use Wilton baking cups to make it easier. Just make sure to spray some oil before so they will come out easily when done. I recommend Trader Joe’s Coconut Oil Non Stick Cooking Spray
Delicious Gluten Free Banana Muffins
These delicious homemade banana muffins are great for breakfast or a quick afternoon snack. Also perfect to enjoy for dessert, or even send them to school as a healthy snack. You can add toppings to make your muffins a little more interesting and creative by putting some chopped nuts on top, honey, or a little almond butter. Additionally, they are naturally gluten free and low in sugar with just a few tablespoons of honey.
Moist, soft, and so flavorful thanks to the mashed banana. Kind of perfect in the muffin world, if you ask me. The only problem I see with these muffins is you will want to eat more than one. Give this recipe a try and see for yourself how quickly they disappear!
This recipe will make 8 regular size banana muffins. Baking with Almond Flour is a fantastic gluten free alternative for baking yummy treats and it also adds good nutrition.
