Flour-Free Never Tasted So Good!

You’ll feel great about serving these Flourless Banana Muffins to your family. Naturally sweetened with maple syrup, they are flour-free, dairy-free and absolutely incredible! Of course, if you want to make truly gluten-free banana muffins, be sure to use gluten-free oats. Either way, the results are YUM.

When I first set out to create a great recipe for flourless baked goods, I had a very clear mission. Make breads and muffins with a few simple ingredients so full of flavor you’ll never miss the flour, butter, oil, sugars or salt they don’t have in them. And y’all, I did it.

The Most Amazing Flourless Quick Bread Recipes by The BakerMama

The best part? This banana muffin recipe uses just 5 ingredients! No added white or brown sugar, salt, baking powder, specialty gluten-free flours or coconut oil in these yummy snacks. Banana oatmeal muffins are super simple by design, but some tasty add-ins could include nuts like walnuts or pecans, cinnamon, or even mini chocolate chips.

Use your imagination! And, in case simplicity is your thing, skip the bowl and the whisk. With this recipe, there’s no need to stir. You just blend all of the wet ingredients and dry ingredients together in your blender and pour straight into a muffin tin coated in nonstick spray or lined with paper liners.

Is My Banana Ripe Enough to Bake With?

When is a banana ripe enough to bake with? If your banana looks beautiful, yellow, and blemish-free, it’s not ready! The best bananas for baking are so ripe they’re almost black. Soft, mushy, ugly bananas on the verge of being fodder for your compost bin are perfect for baking up some Classic Banana Bread or maybe a Peanut Butter Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Banana Bread Bars with a Peanut Butter Oat Streusel

What Do I Need to Make Flourless Banana Muffins?

  • Ripe bananas
  • Large eggs

  1. These were so so delicious and simple. It will definitely be my new go to recipe. Thank you!

    1. Hi, Anoup! I don’t provide nutritional information at this time because everyone uses different brands of ingredients which often have differing nutritional values. I would recommend plugging the ingredients you use into a free online recipe nutrition calculator like: https://whisk.com/recipe-nutrition-calculator/ Hope this helps. Enjoy! ❤️

  2. I have been making these muffins using the loaf recipe for 5+ years and they are the easiest, yummiest treat that I like to eat for breakfast! I always add some chocolate chips 🙂

    1. Hi Hillary! I’m so happy to hear you’ve been enjoying the recipe as muffins for a while. It’s certainly nice to be able to bake the recipe faster as muffins and I love that you add chocolate chips. I hope you continue to enjoy!

    1. Hi Kuldip! I couldn’t say for sure because I haven’t tested the recipe with flax seed as a replacement for the eggs. Blending the eggs with the other ingredients is key to the texture of the batter and the way it bakes into tender muffins. It’s certainly worth a try. Let us know if you have success with it. Fingers crossed!

    1. Hi Tresa! I don’t provide nutritional information at this time because everyone uses different brands of ingredients which often have differing nutritional values. I would recommend plugging the ingredients you use into a free online recipe nutrition calculator like: https://whisk.com/recipe-nutrition-calculator/ Hope this helps. Enjoy! ❤️

    1. Hi Ashley! I haven’t tested the recipe with applesauce, but it’s certainly worth a try. The texture will probably be moister and they might need to bake a bit longer. I hope they turn you just as great! Enjoy!

  3. Delicious!
    This was suuuch a quick and easy recipe! Love that it’s healthy for my little ones. I used maple syrup and date syrup and just eyeballed everything (other than the bananas lol) – I don’t necessarily recommend doing that but mine turned out great! I know adding nuts or chocolate chips would be yummy too. Thanks so much for this recipe!! 💛
