Paleo(ish) Gluten-Free Banana Muffins

Paleo(ish) Gluten-Free Banana Muffins

I LOVE these muffins, and got a little obsessed with them a few weeks back when I was still in the throes of pregnancy nausea.  I made a batch one weekend, ate those, and made a double batch (or maybe triple?) the following weekend.  I still have some of those frozen and pull them when I need a quick breakfast or snack.  They taste amazing whether fresh or frozen!

Serves: 18
This recipe is gluten free and can be made paleo by choosing the ingredients that are paleo (grass-fed for butter or coconut oil, etc).
  • 4 bananas (2 1/2 cups mashed)
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/2 cup almond butter (or other nut butter – I used peanut butter)
  • 4 tablespoons butter, melted (can substitute coconut oil)
  • 1/2 cup almond flour/meal (or coconut flour or favorite flour)
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • pinch of sea salt
  • Chocolate chips or blueberries, optional (chocolate obviously isn’t paleo)
  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Combine your bananas, eggs, nut butter, and butter in a blender, food processor, or mixing bowl and mix well. A double batch fit into my full-size blender just barely.
  3. Add almond or coconut flour, cinnamon, baking soda, baking powder, vanilla, and sea salt and blend again.
  4. Grease or paper-line a muffins pan. Fill muffin cups over 3/4 full (they won’t rise much).
  5. Bake for 30-35 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  6. Allow to cool in pan for 5-10 minutes and transfer muffins to a cooling rack.
This can also be made in a greased loaf pan and baked for 55-60 minutes.

After posting this, I feel like I’m about to go on a kick of scarfing these down again this week.  I’ll be keeping my eyes “peeled” for reduced brown bananas at the store!
