Gluten-Free Banana Nut Muffins

These are fantastic to make over the weekend and freeze to enjoy over the following two weeks. I often make them as school lunch snacks for my children. I place 3 mini-muffins in a plastic sealed bag and freeze. Then just throw one in the lunch box each day, and by lunch time they will be defrosted and ready to eat!

  • 2 bananas
  • 2 eggs
  • ¼ cup of coconut flour
  • ½ cup of Once Again Cashew butter
  • 2 tablespoons of maple syrup
  • ½ teaspoon of baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla
  • ¼ cup unsweetened of dark chocolate chips
  • Garnish: chopped nuts and chocolate chips


  1. Place all ingredients in a blender and pulse until well mixed.
  2. Then continue to blend on medium power for 45 seconds. Pour batter into a mini-muffin pan—a silicone baking pan works best!
  3. Garnish with a few chocolate chips and chopped nuts.
  4. Place your creation in an oven pre-heated to 375 degrees Fahrenheit and bake for 20 minutes.
  5. Check with a toothpick to see if done— insert  a toothpick into a muffin, and if it comes out clean, it is done. Wait for muffins to cool before removing them from the pan. Store in airtight container for up to three days.
