Coconut Flour Banana Muffins! Easy, healthy muffins with a light and fluffy texture. Melt in your mouth delicious!
If you’re looking for something delicious to make with coconut flour, give this recipe a try. These muffins are made with simple pantry staples and only take minutes to make.
These muffins are one of my favorite healthy treats to date! They are naturally gluten-free and grain-free. Best of all, unlike most coconut flour baked goods, they have a surprisingly light and fluffy texture.
If you’re new to gluten-free baking (or even if you’re a seasoned expert!) these muffins are a great, easy recipe.
Bottom line – These are some of the easiest muffins you’ll ever make!
Besides coconut flour, you only need a few pantry staples to make these naturally gluten-free, grain-free muffins! Here are a few other key ingredients:
- Almond Butter or Peanut Butter: Pretty much any kind of nut butter will work in these muffins. If you use a natural nut butter be sure to give it a good stir before measuring.
- Bananas: Overripe with brown spots works best.
- Maple Syrup: Adds a little more sweetness. My natural sweetener of choice!
- Cider Vinegar: Helps activate the baking soda and gives these muffins a little extra lift.
A Few Notes About Coconut Flour
Coconut flour is a very unique ingredient. It absorbs liquid and moisture very easily and needs extra eggs in most recipes. It’s an ingredient that can’t easily be swapped in or out for other flours.
This recipe has been specially designed to work with coconut flour. No other flour can be used as a substitute.
How to Make Them
- Place all the ingredients in a food processor. A blender will also work.
- Blend until completely smooth.
- Line a muffin pan with liners. A good quality paper liner prevents the muffins from sticking. I like these ones.
- Scoop into the pan and bake!
Tip: Be sure to give your nut butter a good stir before scooping it into the measuring cup. This is especially important if you’re using natural almond or peanut butter where the oil separates.
Freezer and Storage Tips
To Make Ahead and Freeze: I like to make muffins in bulk and freeze them for healthy snacks/breakfasts later. Let the muffins cool completely before transferring to a resealable bag for storage in the freezer. The muffins will keep for up to 2 months.
To Reheat from the Freezer: Simply wrap a muffin in a paper towel and microwave for 15-20 seconds or until heated through.
Storage: If you don’t want to freeze these muffins, store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
