These gluten-free banana muffins are light, fluffy, and bursting with banana flavor. Easy to make and naturally sweetened too!

Muffins are pretty much an option for any meal of the day, and they are great for making in large batches and freezing. I like adding these to my kids' lunches and switch things up from a traditional sandwich.

These muffins start out with just the right blend of gluten-free flours and oats to create the perfect gluten-free texture. They are lightly sweetened with pure maple syrup and bananas, so the sugar content is low compared to the other guys… yay!

  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 1 cup rolled oats (gluten-free if needed)
  • 3/4 cup gluten-free flour blend
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 cup melted coconut oil
  • 2 eggs lightly beaten
  • 1/3 cup pure maple syrup
  • 3 very ripe mashed bananas (I like to use previously frozen as they have more liquid and are sweeter)

Preheat oven to 350.
Lightly grease or line a muffin pan.
In a large bowl, combine almond flour through salt; stir until combined.
Create a well in middle of bowl and add the oil through mashed bananas; mix until just combined.
Evenly scoop mixture into prepared muffin pan.
Bake for 20-22 minutes, or until toothpick entered in center of muffins comes out clean.
  • These will stay good for a few days in an airtight container on the counter. Or you can freeze them for later. They are great for freezing!
  • I recommend using previously frozen bananas. They add additional sweetness and some liquid to the recipe. However, overripe bananas straight from the counter will work just fine.
  • This recipe is enough for 12 muffins. However, I usually make 10 muffins so they are slightly larger.
