If you are team bake with less sugar, these are your muffins! They taste like a dessert, but all the sweetness comes from the ripe bananas. 

The mix of coconut flour and almond flour leave the banana nut mini muffins with a soft crumb and the nuts add the perfect crunch for some texture. 

They are just the perfect one-bite treat!

No sugar treats are my jam

For years now I’ve been making a healthy no sugar banana cake (AKA baby’s first smash cake) for my kiddo’s first birthday party.  It’s been a hit with you guys, and I love that it is still my #1 post on the blog.  It tells me you guys also love to feed your littles no extra sugar.

This new banana muffins recipe is an awesome alternative to that first no sugar banana cake, but a grain-free option!

What you’ll need for mini paleo banana nut muffins

How to make them

  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees F. Line 2 – 24 cup mini muffin pans with paper liners. Or use a couple of silicone 24-cup mini muffin pans.
  2. In a large bowl mash the bananas until they are a soft consistency.  Add the eggs, coconut oil, and vanilla extract.  Whisk together.
  3. Next, add the almond flour, coconut flour, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda, sea salt, and 1/4 cup of the chopped nuts into the same bowl.  Stir to combine, then pour into your banana mixture.  Mix until just combined.
  4. Fill mini muffin tins until almost to the top with batter. Sprinkle the remaining nuts on top.
  5. Bake for 11-13 minutes.  The muffins are done once you stick a toothpick in them and it comes out with a soft crumb instead of wet. Cool and then enjoy!

Can you make regular muffins instead of mini muffins?

Absolutely! Simply use a regular muffin tin. This recipe should make about 12-16 regular sizes muffins. The bake time would increase to around 20-24 minutes.

What’s the best way to store these muffins?

These cute paleo banana nut muffins can be stored at room temperature. I suggest keeping them in an airtight container (these are my favorites).

Can you freeze paleo banana nut muffins?

Cool muffins fully before freezing. Place a sheet of parchment paper on a baking sheet. Put muffins on parchment, without touching.

Once fully frozen, transfer muffins to a freeze bag, label and date, and store in the freezer for up to 6 months.

Here’s how to defrost muffins to eat

Either remove the number of mini muffins you want to eat, and place in the fridge to defrost overnight. Then simply place them on the counter to come to room temperature.

Or, if defrosting from frozen here’s what to do. Place muffins on a baking sheet and in a 300 degree oven until warmed through.
