Looking for a simple snack idea that’s gluten free, dairy free and easy to make?  Here it is! The most popular recipe on the blog, my grain free banana maple muffins.

I created this recipe when I was just learning about gluten and dairy free baking and it was an instant success! That’s not to say I didn’t have any failures…there were many! And still are!  But this one is a keeper and that’s probably why it is the most popular recipe on my blog!

Grain Free Banana Maple Muffins

grain free banana maple muffins


150g almond meal (or almond flour or almonds that you can blitz yourself in a TM or food processor)
1tsp baking powder (gluten free)
1 tsp cinnamon
2  eggs
2 Tbsp coconut oil, melted
2 Tbsp maple syrup (you can also use honey or agave syrup)
2 ripe bananas well mashed with a fork
Toppings if you want to decorate your muffins…flaked almonds, coconut, chopped nuts…

What to do:

Combine your almond meal, baking powder and cinnamon in a large bowl.

Add the eggs, coconut oil and maple syrup and gently fold through.

Fold through the mashed bananas.

Spoon into a muffin tray lined with 6 muffin cases (or grease your tin well) sprinkle over toppings and bake 25-30 minutes in an oven set for 170 Celcius until golden and cooked through.

Enjoy while warm, with a spoon full of yoghurt and a drizzle of honey if you really want to make a party out of it.

* Feel free to add your own tastes to the standard mix – you can leave the banana in or out and add blueberries, grated pear, chopped apple, diced peach, raspberries…and maybe even some chopped dark chocolate! For more delicious healthy muffin recipes, see this post here.

  3. Hello! Just wondering, did you use unrefined or refined coconut oil in this recipe? Not that I mind, but I m curious to see if it will have a slight coconut taste when I make these.

    1. I just use raw virgin coconut oil but they don’t seem to taste coconutty to me 🙂

  4. Does the recipe make only 6 muffins?

    1. Yes, it does but feel free to double the recipe – just start with three eggs and add a fourth if you think you need it x
