Gluten-free banana nut muffins are moist, healthy, and naturally sweetened with date sugar. Nutty walnuts add crunch and texture to these paleo, dairy-free muffins.


  • 2 ripe bananas, mashed
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup date sugar
  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon


  1. Preheat oven to 350. In a standard muffin tin, place 10 muffin liners and spray lightly with oil.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk the eggs, coconut oil, date sugar, and vanilla. Add in the mashed banana. Combine the almond flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, nutmeg, and cinnamon. Gently stir in until thoroughly combined. Fold in the walnuts.
  3. Spoon the batter into the greased muffin liners. Sprinkle the top with additional walnuts if desired.
  4. Bake until cooked through and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 22 minutes. Enjoy!
