Gluten Free Banana Muffins

I love a great banana muffin recipe. I have so much fun making banana muffins and, best of all, they always taste amazing. They are resourceful because they use up your excess ripe bananas and because the sweet bananas add so much flavour, you don’t need to add much extra sweetness when baking. This is definitely true for my Gluten Free Banana Muffins. Not only are they gluten free, but they are also free from sugar, dairy and nuts (if you choose), so they can be heartily enjoyed by many people. They also make a delicious and healthy lunch box treat for you and your kids. Extra thumbs ups!

I love going back to basics and making my Gluten Free Banana Muffins without my Thermomix. It reminds me of baking with my Mum when I was growing up. I like grabbing a big mixing bowl and mixing away. Plus the kids really love it when I bake this way. They get a chance to help with the stirring of the mixture and the licking of the bowl, which always makes them happy.

So I hope you enjoy these delicious Gluten Free Banana Muffins as much as we do. They taste and smell amazing and are so simple to make. Guaranteed to leave everybody smiling and wanting seconds.

Gluten Free Banana Muffins

Makes 18 cup cake sized Banana Muffins


  • 5 ripe bananas, mashed
  • 2 cups of gluten free flour of your choice (or 1 cup of gluten free flour and 1 cup of almond meal)
  • 2 teaspoons of gluten free and aluminium free baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons of ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon of organic vanilla powder
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 2 tablespoons of coconut oil or macadamia oil
  • 3 tablespoons of organic or 100% pure maple syrup
  • ¼ cup of nut milk
  • 18 cup cake patties


  1. Pre-heat your oven to 180 degrees Celsius. Line two muffin trays with 18 cup cake sized patties.
  2. Place all of your ingredients into a large mixing bowl and mix the ingredients with a whisk until well combined. Note that if you do want to use your Thermomix, just pop all of the ingredients into your mixing bowl and mix on speed 5 for 30 seconds.
  3. Fill your patties with spoonfuls of the mixture until they are three quarters full. Place the muffin trays in the pre-heated oven and bake for 20-25 minutes until they are golden brown, or until a skewer inserted into the Gluten Free Banana Muffins comes out clean.
  4. Place the Gluten Free Banana Muffins on a cooling rack to cool. Enjoy warm or cold, and try not to eat them all at once!

I’m a massive fan of home made almond milk. It tastes great and it’s so simple to make with just two ingredients! It wins hands down in any competition against the store bought varieties of almond milk. It contains a greater proportion of almonds to water, it has no nasty additives, preservatives or thickeners, and …
