Coconut Flour Peanut Butter Banana Muffins! Easy, protein-rich muffins with a light and fluffy texture. Melt in your mouth delicious!
These Coconut Flour Peanut Butter Banana Muffins are one of my favorite gluten-free baked goods to date! My love for healthy muffins runs deep. (As evidenced by these Grain-Free Buckwheat Morning Glory Muffins and these Coconut Flour Blueberry Protein Muffins). I also shared the recipe for these Healthy Chocolate Almond Butter Muffins a few months ago and they’ve gotten great reviews.
If you love easy, protein-rich muffins as much as I do, you have to try these peanut butter banana muffins! Unlike most coconut flour baked goods, they have a surprisingly light and fluffy texture.
I know many people who eat gluten-free get overwhelmed by the endless lists of flours and different “all purpose” gluten-free flour blends out there. If you’re new to gluten-free baking (or even if you’re a seasoned expert!) these muffins are a great, easy recipe.
They have only one flour (coconut flour) and call for everyday ingredients you probably already have on hand. In addition to the bananas, I use a little maple syrup to sweeten these muffins to keep these refined-sugar-free. If you can’t eat peanut butter, almond butter also works wonderfully in this recipe!
I use these unbleached parchment cupcake/muffin liners when I make gluten-free muffins and they work great. My muffins never stick when I use those liners! I like to make muffins in bulk and freeze them and using a good muffin liner also helps these muffins stay fresh through freezing/reheating. Enjoy!
