Share or Pin for Later

If you get cravings for pastries like I do or just want to enjoy or something a little sweet but are gluten-free or on a low carb eating plan you’ll absolutely love this gluten-free Banana Muffin Recipe! 

I’ll be honest. I LOVE good bread and cakes and cookies and flour products of all kinds. But I know that many carbs and that much sugar isn’t good for me.  

Still, about 3:00 in the afternoon I want a little something sweet with a cup of coffee. Trying to stamp down this desire was making me feel kind of deprived and occasionally a little crabby. 

Enter this awesome low carb gluten-free banana muffin recipe! It’s super easy to make. Plus, it’s great because this recipe doesn’t call for any strange ingredients or artificial sweeteners and it really helps satisfy my craving for pastry!

The muffins come out light and fluffy and look like real muffins, even without flour of any kind.  

And, not only do they taste great, per my calculations they have less than 9 net carbohydrates per muffin! And this is a standard size muffin, not a mini-muffin.  

These muffins are just slightly sweet, so if you want something sweeter and aren’t worried about carbs, you could add an additional tablespoon of honey. Or you could even use an alternative sweetener, like Swerve or whatever you like to use, instead of the honey and reduce the carbs further.  Of course, you can always add honey or jelly to your muffin when you’re ready to eat it, too. 

So let’s get to the recipe, shall we?

Best Ever Gluten-Free Banana Muffins 

Yield: 8 muffins 

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease muffin tins. 

Ingredients 

2/3 c. mashed banana (about 2 medium-sized bananas) 

2 eggs 

2/3 c. natural peanut butter (no sugar added) 

1/2 t. vanilla 

½ t. salt 

1 T honey 

¾ t. cinnamon 

Directions 

Mash bananas thoroughly in a medium-sized bowl 

Beat 2 eggs with a fork in a small bowl or cup and add to the mashed bananas 

Then add baking soda, vanilla, salt, honey, and cinnamon. 

Stir until combined. 

Scoop batter evenly into 8 prepared muffin cups.  

Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes. 

Let cool in the pan for 5 minutes or so and remove carefully. Enjoy! 

Note: These muffins will look quite brown because of the peanut butter. It doesn’t mean they are overbaked. 🙂 

 

 

I like this recipe as an afternoon snack but it would work for a breakfast muffin or even packed as part of a healthy lunch!
