It’s a happy morning because I’m starting my morning with Almond Flour Banana Bread Muffins. If we’re being honest, I’ve also been ending my day with these almond butter muffins, too. 

Aside from eating muffins all weekend, we entertained both nights. We had our neighbors over for dinner one night, and my parents stopped in the other. They hadn’t seen Camryn since Thanksgiving, and she has all sorts of new tricks now that she showed them.

Oh, and now all the banana muffins with almond butter are gone. Cue the tears.

These gluten free banana muffins with almond flour are refined sugar-free, too. Of course, you can add maple syrup if you want a sweeter flavor, but the ripe bananas and almond butter do it for me. 

They just have the perfect gooey inside and soft finishing texture. 

And 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.

What Makes Almond Butter Muffins So Healthy and Delicious? 

  • Almond meal banana muffins have no oils and are free of refined sugar. We can thank the wonderful ripe bananas for adding some natural sweetness.
  • They have real almond flavor from the almond butter and almond flour. And extra nutrients!
  • The oat flour helps keep them soft and fluffy! 

Who doesn’t like banana almond 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 these healthy almond flour muffins combine 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!

These almond banana muffins are the perfect snack or dessert, alongside a scoop of peanut butter and/or ice cream or yogurt!

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.

Muffins made with almond flour are perfect for a grab and go breakfast.

If having for breakfast, I would recommend pairing them with a greek yogurt smoothie or a vegetarian quiche for more sustainable 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. 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 Banana Almond Butter Muffins 

Plenty of other ideas to add into theses almond flour healthy muffins. Some of my favorites include:

  • Nuts
  • Dried fruit (raisins, cranberries, cherries)
  • Pumpkin instead of banana
  • Flax or chia seeds
  • Mini chocolate chips
  • Peanut butter instead of almond butter

My favorite way to enjoy these almond meal muffins is with MORE almond butter or peanut butter – I can really never decide.

But there’s no wrong answer, either way.

  1. Yum! Flavor combos that cannot be denied! I love having muffins around for snacks. Or with an egg for breakfast!
    I love Ed’s question about finishing them. Too bad terry is only like that when it comes to sweets!

  2. ACV is a magic ingredient. I throw it in all my baking.
    I’d choose almond butter if I could – as long as it’s roasted and not raw.
    I’m glad I’m not the only one super protective of my creations. I like sharing… But sometimes it’s…hard…

  3. I love all the ingredients used in here!! Do muffins ever really last longer then 2 days?? Because in this household, heck no!
    They are just so versatile and make for the perfect snack, love that this recipe uses almond meal, but be so tasty.

  4. Almond or peanut butter is such a hard question! I think I go through phases where I like one over the other better. These look so yummy, chocolate paired with anything is a win!

  5. Done making this recipe and I am letting these muffins sit on a wire rack with a paper towel beneath the rack and on top of the muffins. I am so excited to eat one! Woo!
