These paleo banana bread muffins are so delicious you would never guess they were paleo!

They fooled my husband, who is the harshest critic of all. He couldn’t believe these were made with almond flour instead of all purpose flour.

How to Make Paleo Banana Muffins in the Blender

I’ve made these countless times to get the recipe just perfect.

To make these easy to make and to get the batter completely smooth, I let the blender do all the work for me. I love my Vitamix!

It’s important to get the batter smooth. If there are chunks of banana, the crumb won’t be as delicate. Plus, by making them in the blender it’s so easy to pour them into the muffin pan.

Almond Flour Banana Muffins Ingredients

I use 4 bananas to make these. The best kind to use are when they are ripe with brown freckles. If they’re all yellow, they’re not as sweet and have too much starch. If they’re completely brown they have too much moisture and the muffins will be too soggy.

I add just 1/4 cup coconut sugar to give them the perfect amount of sweetness, since the ripe bananas already offer plenty of sweetness.

The only other ingredients are eggs, coconut oil, baking powder, vanilla and salt. So clean and healthy!

I like topping my paleo banana muffins with chopped pecans because it gives it a great crunch. You can skip it if you don’t have nuts on hand. Or you can use another favorite nut, like walnuts or almonds.

  • Yield: 12 muffins 1x
Scale

Ingredients

4 medium bananas, slightly over ripe with brown freckles

6 large eggs

2 cups almond flour

1/4 cup coconut sugar

2 tablespoons coconut oil, melted and room temperature

2 teaspoons baking powder

2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract

1/2 teaspoon salt

coconut oil spray

1/2 cup roasted pecans, finely chopped


Instructions

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees with the oven rack in the middle.

In a high speed blender, combine the bananas, eggs, almond flour, coconut sugar, coconut oil, baking powder, vanilla, and salt . Blend until smooth, scraping down the sides if needed.

Pour the batter into the muffin pan, filling each muffin to the top so they get big, puffy tops.

Sprinkle about 1 tablespoon of the chopped pecans on top of each muffin.

Bake for about 40 minutes, until the tops are golden brown.

Will keep on the counter for 3 days, in an airtight container refrigerated for 1 week, or frozen for 6 months.


Notes

These freeze beautifully! Allow the muffins to cool completely, then wrap tightly in saran wrap and store in a freezer safe ziptop bag.
