What Do You Need To Get Baking
You'll need 5 ingredients only!
- Eggs - medium size.
- Granulated sugar - This can be reduced a little bit for these almond flour muffins but can't be removed completely from the recipe.
- Bananas - Use up these ripe bananas sitting on your counter!
- Almond Flour - I use this blanched almond flour.
- Vanilla Extract - switch it for almond extract if you want.
- Baking powder - for the rise, although it won't rise quite as much as it is a gluten-free banana muffin recipe.
Now, let's get baking.
How To Make Almond Flour Banana Muffins
Truthfully, this is a really simple recipe to prepare. Totally kid-friendly is your little hands at home like to bake on their own.
1 - First, whisk the eggs with the sugar. Easy peasy so far. Then, mash the bananas and add them to the egg mix. Add some vanilla extract. Lastly, incorporate the almond flour, mix some more before adding the baking powder.
2 -Prepare some muffin liners in your muffin tin. Using an ice cream scoop, scoop 2 spoons of batter for each muffin hole.
3 - This is the moment if you want to add some sliced almonds or chocolate chips before baking them. Now, you just need to bake them for 15 to 20 minutes.
Are These Muffins Healthy?
There are made healthier for sure. This is a low carb and gluten-free recipe and they also don't have any fat. However, these baked goods are not keto or paleo banana muffins as it is not a sugar-free recipe.
The added sugar can be adjusted, if you wish you can reduce it to half a cup. Using maple syrup could be an alternative too.
This recipe was developed to use almond flour, changing for all-purpose flour will change the consistency and moisture of the muffins.
In my opinion, this is a great option to make more gluten-free baked goods. It keeps the cakes, muffins or cookies quite moist and chewy. I really love the texture of sweets with almond meal.
Almond flour is denser than all-purpose flour. Also, it is low in carbohydrates so it will definitely rise as high as regular flour.
While coconut flour is the healthiest flour, almond flour is right behind it on the list. I, personally, do not consume almond flour to follow any diet but simply because I’m obsessed with its taste. Almost anything made with it (to play it safe!), I’ll eat it. You should know that about me by now :)
