Gluten Free Banana Nut Muffins

banana nut muffins

These are a family favorite around here.  Nobody will ever know they are Gluten Free unless you tell them.  I adapted this recipe just a bit from Dr. Axe’s cookbook.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line 24 muffin cups with cupcake liners.

In a medium bowl mix the following:

  • 1 3/4 cups Bob’s Gluten Free Flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt

In a separate bowl add the following, using a wire whisk to blend:

  • 1 egg
  • 2/3 cup maple syrup or honey
  • 1/2 cup grapeseed oil
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened coconut milk or yogurt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

Add wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix well.  Then add the following:

  • 2-3 ripe mashed bananas
  • 1 cup chocolate chips (mini chips work best)
  • 1/2 cup pecans or walnuts

Use a 1/4 cup measure to fill muffin cups lined with cupcake liners 2/3 full.  Place in preheated oven and bake approximately 20-25 minutes or until muffins are golden brown and fully cooked.

    My Dr. has me trying out gluten free for three weeks and I love to cook. Do you prefer Bob’s gluten free flour or King Arthur?

    Bobs is certified GF. Not sure about King Arthur’s. If you stay GF, I’d recommend mixing your own. It’s much less expensive! But for a short trial (I know it doesn’t feel short!) the premixed is a good idea. If you end up feeling better and decide to stay on it, let me know if you’d like help navigating the diet. I’ve been GF for 2 yrs and my son for 13 yrs. best if luck to you! My email is

    Hi Ashleigh, I use both depending on what I am cooking. I like to use Bob’s GF baking mix in brownies, banana bread, pancakes, and waffles. But for cookies, cakes, batter for chicken or fish, I like to use King Arthur’s GF mix.
