cindy's Story

I and one of my daughters eat wheat free. This is one of the best recipes I've run across for wheat-free baked goods. Really delicious with no "weird" gluten-free taste or texture. I got the recipe from the Nutiva (coconut oil) website. The only changes I made, were to use almond meal instead of blanched almond flour and the addition of nuts.


3 c
blanched almond flour(i use almond meal from trader joes and they turn out great!)
1 tsp
baking soda
1/2 tsp
sea salt
1/2 tsp
baking powder
very ripe bananas, mashed
1/2 c
honey(or maple syrup, agave, or xylitol)
1/4 c
melted coconut oil(or melted butter)***
1 tsp
vanilla extract
1/4 c
chopped nuts

Directions Step-By-Step

Preheat oven to 350F. Grease a 12 muffin tin. Mix dry ingredients in a large bowl. Mix wet ingredients in a med. bowl in order listed. Add wet mixture to dry mixture. Stir just to combine. Fill muffin cups. Sprinkle with chopped nuts. Bake about 20 min. (tops will be set and spring back when lightly touched)
***the last time I made these, I accidentally omitted the oil and they still turned out great!

I never refrigerate them, Debbie, but around here they don't last long enough to worry about it! I think they'd freeze fine. And as far as I'm concerned, the more vanilla the better!

I added 1 tbsp of vanilla extract, I thought it was by accident, but seen that nutivia site calls for that amount. Not sure if that matters, but mine turned out great.

Should these muffins be refrigerated. Also can they be frozen?

Glad you liked it, Tatevik! I consider this a "no-fail" recipe-it never lets me down and everyone I've fed them to loves them!
