I’m loving starting my morning with banana muffins with almond butter and if we’re being honest, I’ve also been ending my day with them, too.
Almond Flour Banana Muffins Ingredients
This banana muffin recipe with almond flour is super easy to make. The next time you have ripe bananas and find yourself searching for a banana muffin recipe with almond flour, make these!
Here’s what you need
- Almond Flour – My two favorites are Bob’s Red Mill Almond Flour and Anthony’s
- Oat Flour – aka oats ground into flour or you can buy this. If you have extra, try them in these almond butter energy bites.
- Eggs – I didn’t test these as vegan muffins, but I assume you could use a flax egg to make it vegan
- Apple Cider Vinegar – This helps the muffins rise!
- Almond Butter
- Almond Milk
- Chocolate Chips
Are Almond Flour Banana Muffins Healthy?
Yes they are, in many ways!
- These gluten free banana muffins with almond flour are refined sugar-free. We can thank the wonderful ripe bananas for adding some natural sweetness, just like in these stawberry banana chickpea flour muffins.
- They are full of healthy fats and have a real almond flavor from almond butter and almond flour. And extra nutrients!
- The oat flour keeps these gluten free banana oat muffins extra soft and fluffy, with a perfect gooey inside and soft finishing texture.
- Since almond flour packs a little more protein than regular all purpose, whole wheat and coconut flour, these almond butter muffins also have more protein than competitors.
Are These High Protein Muffins?
Each gluten free banana muffin has 8 grams of protein, so yes, this is a high protein muffin recipe comparatively speaking. Great for keeping you full and satisfied, my favorite for that non-stop breastfeeding hunger. Aren’t you always hungry breastfeeding?!
I don’t like the taste of protein powder in my muffins so having high protein muffins without protein powder is a huge plus. Similar to these gluten free chocolate zucchini muffins.
Almond Flour Muffins For Snacks
Who doesn’t like banana almond flour muffins, especially when they’re bursting with chocolate, banana and almond butter flavors?
I don’t know about you, but those are some of my favorite flavor combinations and this gluten free banana muffin recipe combines them all.
Plus, best of all, they’re ready in 30 minutes and kid-friendly. We take them in the car on the way to events, practices, school, daycare and more. Almond flour banana muffins are the best portable snack!

We’ve been going through these really fast in our house. Like grab a couple when in the kitchen and walking out the door, gone in 1-2 days fast. Last week it was coconut flour chocolate chip cookies, this week it’s these.
Almond flour banana oatmeal muffins are perfect for a grab and go breakfast and make for high protein breakfast muffins, with 8 grams of protein each!
Though, I would still recommend pairing them with a greek yogurt smoothie or an asparagus quiche for more sustainable and lasting energy.
We can also all use portable snacks to fuel throughout the day. Even Camryn loves them and they have been perfect muffins as baby led weaning muffins and now toddler muffins.
I know some parents prefer to wait on certain ingredients for kids, but banana muffins made with almond flour are an easy way to introduce nuts through nut flour.
As the most recent research shows, introducing allergens earlier rather than later may help reduce the risk of food allergies.
Personally, I find them to be best before or after a workout, packed with energizing complex carbohydrates and quick-acting bananas.
Other Mix In Ideas For This Almond Flour Banana Muffins Recipe
There are plenty of other ingredients you could add to these almond flour healthy muffins. Some of my favorites include:
- Dried fruit (raisins, cranberries, cherries)
- Pumpkin puree instead of banana
- Flax seeds or chia seeds
- Mini chocolate chips
- Any nut butter (DIY salted peanut butter would be delicious!)
My favorite way to enjoy these banana almond meal muffins is with melted butter or more nut butter. Banana muffins with almond butter are nothing to contend with!
Another fun recipe to try are these vegan matcha muffins.
