I originally shared this recipe back in 2012. It was one of the first recipes I ever had on the site and been on my list to update for quite some time. What I love about updating old posts, is not only to see how far my photography has come, but it’s sometimes a question to see if the recipe will actually turn out.

As many of you know, I started this blog on a whim. I’m a self-taught cook, don’t have any formal baking experience, and when I shared these muffins, I was brand new to gluten-free eating. Honestly, I was half expecting them to flop, but as I watched them rise in the oven and saw the texture when I opened one up, I realized these gluten-free banana bread muffins didn’t need any updating in the recipe department. They were perfect. Soft, light, and fluffy. Just the way a muffin should be.

Muffins are just one of those things that brighten up my mornings. They bring a smile to my face and make my taste buds sing with joy. They’re comforting. They’re delicious. They’re amazing. They’re the perfect breakfast treat. I love muffins.

And if you’re like me, then you’re also one of those people who loves fruity muffins. Chunks of fresh fruit or berries, dried fruit or simply pureed fruit for that kick of added flavor, fruit-filled muffins are simply the best.

These AMAZING Banana Bread Muffins might be gluten-free, but you'd never be able to tell!

Lately, I’ve been craving banana bread, but have been wanting to skip the whole bread part of it. I didn’t want to wait for it to bake. I didn’t feel like having just a slice. I wanted something that I could cup in my hand, slather with vegan butter or creamy almond butter, and eat slowly, thoroughly enjoying each and every bite.

I wanted that simple, compact and easy-to-eat breakfast that I’ve enjoyed since I was a little girl. I wanted banana bread in a muffin.

Serves 12 muffins     adjust servings

Ingredients

  • 2 large mashed ripe bananas
  • 1/4 cup melted organic coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup organic Vermont maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup coconut sugar
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 2 large organic free-range eggs
  • 1/4 apple cider vinegar
  • 1 cup toasted quinoa flour
  • 1/2 cup tapioca flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1/4 cup walnuts (any kind of nuts would work)

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Grease a 12-cup muffin tin and set aside.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, beat all wet ingredients together (including the sugar) until fully combined.
  3. Add the dry ingredients to the banana mixture and stir to combine, until you have a nice smooth batter.
  4. Spoon the batter into the muffin tins, filling each cup about ¾ of the way full. Top each muffin with some walnuts and gently press down so that walnuts stick as the muffins bake.
  5. Bake in the center of a warm oven for 13 – 15 minutes, or until a cake tester inserted into the center comes out clean.
  6. Let the muffins cool for 10 minutes on a wire rack.
  7. Enjoy these muffins served warm, topped with vegan butter or creamy peanut butter, next to your favorite mug of morning tea or coffee.
