These Grain-Free Banana Muffins are so easy to make, they require one bowl and only ten ingredients. They are the perfect easy breakfast or snack to take with you while you're out doing errands, or to send in a lunch with your kid. I have been making these banana muffins for years and they are a big hit in our family. They don't last much more than a day after coming out of the oven!
A couple notes about grain-free banana muffins:
Having two kids in the family means I buy quite a few bananas. When I say quite a few, I mean we go through at least a bunch a day. That's a lot of bananas. Because I buy so many, a few will become over ripe sitting in the fruit bowl. I usually stick the over ripe bananas in the freezer and save them for this recipe. I will pull them out of the freezer a couple hours before I want to bake, and they are thawed and ready to go. Ripe, unfrozen bananas also work good in this recipe, they may just require a little bit more mashing.
Can I add nuts to my banana muffins?
Some people enjoy nuts in their baked goods and I happen to be one of them. But because I make these so much for my kids, I usually leave the nuts out. If you are like me and want nuts in your grain-free banana muffins, I recommend adding ⅓ cup of chopped pecans or walnuts.

This is one recipe I plan on baking. So many great looking recipes. Smoothies, yum!
Thank you! My husband and daughter fight over these muffins every time I make them! They are a household favorite-I hope you like them just as much!
These are so good! Very easy to make but taste like something you would get at a bakery. Highly recommend.
By far my favorite banana muffin recipe. I added pecans and chocolate chips. Sometimes I use Bob's red Mill Paleo Flour mix instead of the coconut and almond flour. Comes out just as good!
Great additions and use of the paleo flour. Thanks, Lori!
These were great. I tested them out for back to school snacks and they were a hit with my kids (and my husband and me)! They were also really simple to make and had minimal cleanup after.
