Whether you’re a banana bread lover, or you just like everything muffin, these gluten, dairy, and refined sugar-free Banana Bread Muffins are sure to be a favorite!
Easy for the win.
These Banana Bread Muffins are quick and easy to whip up for breakfast or a snack. With no refined sugar, and only tiny bit of honey, they’re not super sweet, but sweet enough to satisfy my kiddos’ requirement for a ‘treat.’
While I haven’t had ‘normal’ muffins in a long time, the texture of these little beauties takes me back to muffins I used to make before going gluten-free. Perfect crumb, perfect taste!
Banana bread muffins.
In my personal, humble opinion, one can never have too many banana bread recipes. It’s one of my main comfort foods, and the very first thing I craved when I went gluten-free 4 years ago. If you take a few minutes to search for ‘banana bread‘ here on my site, you’ll see that different banana breads are sort-of an obsession of mine. 😉
Whether they come in the form of a loaf, a muffin, a doughnut, or even a smoothie, I’ll take banana bread any way it comes!

- 3 medium bananas
- 1/2 cup applesauce
- 1/4 cup coconut milk (I like to make my own)
- 1 egg
- 2 tablespoons honey
- 1 teaspoon vanilla (I like to make my own)
- 1 1/2 cups sorghum flour
- 1/2 cup arrowroot powder
- 2 teaspoons baking soda
- 1 teaspoon guar gum
- 2 teaspoons cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon ginger
- 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
- 1/8 teaspoon cloves
- 1/2 teaspoon Himalayan salt
Preheat oven to 350 and grease a muffin tin.
In a large bowl, mash bananas.
Stir in applesauce, coconut milk, egg, honey, and vanilla.
In separate bowl, whisk together remaining ingredients.
Slowly stir dry ingredients into banana mixture.
Scoop 1/3 cupfuls of batter into prepared tins and bake for about 20 minutes, or until toothpick comes out clean.
Cool in the pan for a few minutes before removing and consuming.
seems the amount of bananas is missing for the ingredients?
Thanks so much for catching that, Shannon! That’s what I get for writing when I’m tired. :p
Those look phenomenal, Raia! Love the rise on the them and that last photo is stunning!

Hi Raia! Thanks for posting at my Tuesday link up, so happy to have you! I’ve got to say I am stunned by your beautiful photography! I’m a sucker for anything involving bananas in the morning (its just a match made in heaven with coffee…); looks delish!

Made these today – loosely threw the ingredients together with chopped walnuts. These are perfect – healthy, not overly sweet, and are not filled with the same GF flours that I end up using over and over again. THANKS!
So glad you enjoyed them, Diane! Thanks so much for letting me know. 🙂
