GRAIN-FREE BANANA MUFFINS, PERFECT FOR SNACKING!

My kids love these muffins, and quite honestly so do I!

Sweetened with banana and a bit of maple syrup, these grain-free muffins are versatile and perfect for an after-school snack for the kids, with an evening cup of tea for you, or a great treat to bring along with you just about anywhere.

Go crazy and get creative with the filling and toppings!

My fav is a combination of raspberry and almonds.  My kid's love the muffins with chocolate chips (obviously), or blueberries.

  • 1/2 cup cassava flour or tapioca flour
  • 1 tsp aluminum-free baking soda
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp salt

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Preheat your oven to 175 C/350 F degrees.
  2. Mash the bananas with a fork in a mixing bowl. Add all of the other ingredients to the mixing bowl, except the toppings
  3. Use a hand mixer to blend all the ingredients together.
  4. Add your flavor/toppings and fold in.*
  5. Line a muffin tin with muffin cups and evenly divide the batter between 12 muffin cups. Sprinkle a little of your filling on top.
  6. Bake the muffins for 22-25 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
  7. Let cool completely on a wired rack.

NOTES:

If you are doing multiple flavors as I did, pour your plain batter into the muffin tin and then add your filling and topping. I used my finger to push the berries, nuts, and chocolate chips in, and then sprinkled some on top.
