Grain Free Naturally Sweetened Banana Muffins

Grain Free Naturally Sweetened Banana Muffins


     These muffins have no sugar, sweetener, or artificial sweetener added! They are subtly sweet and good for those who have cut sugar out of their diet but really miss a baked good. Judah loved these when he was a baby. I will admit he still likes them but since he has experienced a real muffin he prefers his with a little jelly or nut butter on it. I love how easy these muffins are to make and have on hand for snacks or a quick breakfast in the morning. I like to cut them in half and add peanut butter. I have been known to take them along in a bag for a snack when I'm running errands. This recipe is based on the Banana Bread Muffin Recipe from Wellness Mama. I found that the addition of a little nut butter helps them to have a better texture and crumb!

 Grain Free Naturally Sweetened Banana Muffins


- 2 very ripe bananas
- 1/4 cup melted or very soft coconut oil
- 5 eggs
- 1/4 cup peanut butter or other nut butter
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 cup coconut flour
-1 tsp vanilla extract ( optional just adds little flavor)


1) Preheat oven to 400 degrees and spray a 12 count muffin tin with cooking spray or fill with muffin liners

2) In a large bowl ( if you are using an immersion blender) or a blender add all ingredients and blend until batter is very smooth and well mixed, about 30 seconds.

3) Pour batter evenly into all 12 muffin cups

4) Bake for 13-16 minutes until tops begin to brown and the muffins are set ( in my oven 15 minutes is the perfect amount)

5) Allow to cool completely before serving for better texture, serve with nut butter, jelly, or honey! I think they taste best cold right out of the fridge!

A few notes:
These are coconut flour based so will have a different texture than most regular flour muffins.

Since there are no added sweeteners the sweetness of the muffins depends on how ripe your bananas are! Make sure they are VERY ripe with a lot of black spots! If you are used to eating sugar these will most likely not satisfy your craving for a muffin, but for those with diet restrictions they are a wonderful option and really satisfying!

Store in an airtight container or bag in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
