Super-simple gluten free and sugarfree banana muffins perfect for a nourishing snack or naturally sweet treat.

These moist, naturally-sweetened muffins can also be made nut free by using coconut milk instead of nut milk.

I like to make a batch of these and freeze them for simple lunch box snacks or for morning/ afternoon tea. They contain no added sugars or sweeteners, just the natural sweetness of banana.

    Any substitute for coconut flour?

    • Casey-Lee Lyons

      Hi Meghana,
      Great question. The coconut flour is unique in its baking action so you can use almond meal but at double quantity. Here is a banana muffin recipe that uses almond meal instead:
      For nut free of the almond meal recipe you can use tigernut flour or sunflower seed meal instead. Does this help?

    • Carol

      I have substituted Brown rice flour for the coconut floursuccessfully.

      • Casey-Lee Lyons

        That’s great to hear! Thank you for sharing this success. Hope you enjoyed the recipe.
