I love baking with almond flour, and recently I’ve started to do more research on gluten-free recipes. 

Almond flour is ideal for making these gluten-free muffins that are just as delicious as my almond flour pancakes or almond flour crepes for breakfast. Serve them with a cup of tea or coffee for a more special breakfast!

Besides the fact that these grain-free muffins are delicious, fluffy, and loaded with chocolate, they contain no sugar added or artificial sweeteners. Kids also love almond flour banana muffins.

Almond Flour Banana Muffins Ingredients

For these healthy muffins, you’ll need just a few wholesome ingredients that you probably already have in your pantry. Here’s a note on the ingredients:

Almond Flour Banana Muffins Ingredients
  • Bananas – ripe bananas are used to sweeten these muffins. They are super easy to mash and have the best flavor. For my keto friends, I recommend my keto banana bread recipe.
  • Almond Flour – use superfine almond flour, not an almond meal, for the best texture. Coconut flour is not the best substitute for this recipe.
  • Eggs – room temperature eggs for the best flavor.
  • Vanilla Extract – To make these muffins taste delicious, I recommend using high-quality pure vanilla extract.
  • Cinnamon –  is optional, but it tastes delicious with banana and chocolate chips.
  • Baking Powder – helps these banana muffins become super fluffy and rise beautifully.
  • Salt – helps to intensify all the flavors.
  • Chocolate Chips – I used sugar-free dark chocolate chips in this recipe. 

How To Make Almond Flour Muffins?

These muffins are extremely easy to make, and the result is divine. Here is everything you have to do:

  1. Prepare the muffin tin: Line a muffin tin with silicone or paper muffin cups.
  2. Make the muffin batter: Add the bananas, eggs, vanilla extract, cinnamon, and baking powder to a large bowl. Use a fork to mash the bananas and mix all the ingredients.
  3. Add almond flour and whisk until combined and a smooth batter forms. Incorporate the chocolate chips using a silicone spatula.
  4. Distribute the batter between 10-12 muffin liners. 
  5. Bake for 20-25 minutes at 350F or until the muffins look golden brown on top.

Tips To Make The Best Almond Flour Muffins

  • Only use ripe bananas because they provide the best flavor and sweetness.
  • Make sure that you don’t overmix the batter.
  • Allow the muffins to cool completely before serving. These banana almond flour muffins are delicious right out of the oven but tend to break apart easier. They will hold their shape better once cold.

Mix-in Variations

Instead of using chocolate chips, here are other great ideas:

  • Add some fresh blueberries to the batter.
  • You can also substitute the chocolate chips with your favorite chopped nuts.
  • Mix in some shredded zucchini to make some delicious zucchini banana muffins.

Storing Ideas 

  • Fridge: If you have any leftovers, you can store them covered in them for up to seven days and eat them as a snack. 
  • Freezer: These muffins can also be stored in the freezer in an air-tight container for up to 3 months. You can thaw them overnight in the refrigerator or reheat them in the microwave for about 30 seconds.
