Gluten Free Banana Muffins

I found this recipe the other day browsing the internet for healthy yummies to make for the family.  I tweaked it just a bit to suit my tastes and it was amazing, so here I am sharing it with you!

Here's what you'll need:

  • 2 ripe bananas, mashed
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/4 maple syrup (or honey)
  • 3/4 cup coconut flour
  • 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tbsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp. baking soda

Optional things to include:
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 1/2 chocolate chips
  • 1/2 crushed walnuts or pecans

Pick one!


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees, and line muffin tin with muffin papers, OR grease muffin tins with coconut oil.
  2. Mix bananas, applesauce, and syrup in a bowl. 
  3. When mixture is smooth, add dry ingredients.
  4. Fold in any of the optional ingredients you choose, and then fill muffin tins 3/4's the way full.
  5. Bake for 30 minutes.

The nutrition facts were based off this recipe making 20 muffins.  I love how it rated it a C+ in nutrition, crazy nutritionists!  Anyway,  enjoy!
