Gluten Free Banana Muffins Recipe

Banana Muffins

These banana muffins are really great because they are refined sugar-free, grain free and also because they remind me of bran muffins. Bran muffins were my favorite muffins before I had to go off gluten.

The Almond flour used to make these muffins gives them that bran-like texture ( I used a course ground almond meal for these, not a finely ground almond flour) and they also keep you full for longer as almond flour is high in protein and fat.

Almond flour is also high in Vitamin E and magnesium.

what you need for these

  • almond meal
  • bicarbonate of soda
  • cinnamon
  • salt
  • oil
  • coconut sugar
  • eggs
  • vanilla essence
  • 2 bananas

Hello. My name is Bonnie. Welcome to my page. I have been an avid baker for about 20 years. Of those years, seven have been gluten-free baking. I discovered I had a chronic intolerance to gluten and began experimenting with converting my all time favorite recipes into gluten-free ones. I also have developed my own recipe repertoire. I am married and have two children. My husband and son are not gluten intolerant but my daughter is. She has also been the motivation for persevering in creating recipes we both can enjoy. My journey has taught me so much and I know many others can benefit from my experience. My hope is that you will find something you can order that you have missed and longed for being gluten intolerant or celiac. Or perhaps you just want a healthier option as I also offer alternatives to some of my orders such as sugar free, grain free and low carb. I share my experience and story in more detail on my Instagram page. (@bonniesGFbakery) Please feel free to follow me there. Located in Somerset West, Western cape, South Africa. I deliver to the Helderberg basin area which includes Somerset West, Gordans Bay and Strand.
