What Makes these Banana Almond Flour Muffins Unique?
The sweet and tender bites of banana goodness are:
You will need a full cup of mashed, very ripe banana for the recipe. It will take about 2 to 3 large bananas to create this amount. It is important to measure the mashed banana rather than go by total number of whole bananas since sizes can vary tremendously.
All kinds of additional flavorings can be added to the batter, such as vanilla, almond extract, citrus zest or spices. They are not necessary, though; the basic version is packed with plenty of flavor!
Stick with a mini muffin pan. Without the structure of eggs or gluten, this batter does not fare well in large pans (rise and fall). This includes standard size muffin cups and loaf pans. Also, the longer baking time required from bigger muffins and loaves leads to scorching.
Bake in a preheated 350F oven for 14 to 16 minutes until risen and tops appear dry and light golden brown. Without added sugar, these muffins will not turn a deep golden brown like traditional muffins; they will only becoming darker brown at the outer edges.
Let the muffins cool in the muffin pan for 5 minutes before running a butter knife around the edges of each cup. Remove the muffins and cool completley on the cooling rack.
This has become a staple in my home. I make them weekly, simply the best 👍

Any other flour recommendations? We can’t do tree nuts or peanuts.

Hi Sara! You can use sunflower seed flour (here is my easy DIY version). You can use the same method for the sunflower seed flour but use pepitas, too :)

Yay! So glad you enjoyed these (and thumbs up to the chocolate chips addition :)). When I was developing the recipe, I tried a regular muffin pan and had issues with the centers collapsing post-bake. If you do make in a regular muffin pan, I suggest filling the cup no more than 1/3 full to avoid sinking :)
