Flourless Banana and Nut Butter Muffins [Dairy free, Gluten free, Grain free, Sugar free]

This is an easy-peasy 5 minute-to-put-together recipe with results that are decadently delicious and what is brilliant about it, is that it is totally flourless!  It is pretty much free of everything except nuts and eggs.  It’s quick and simple to put together with healthy ingredients and blending in a blender or food processor takes at the most 2 minutes. I omitted the raw honey and found that the prunes added a touch of sweetness that rounded off these muffins without additional sweetening required. Pitted dates may be added for a sweeter taste if you prefer.  Organic, raw cacao chocolate chips may also be added to the ingredients to make delightfully indulgent muffins.  Made with nut butter, this is a high protein muffin which is good as a pre-work out snack and also one that the kids will love!

These muffins are light in texture, rise effortlessly, do not deflate when removed from the oven, and make a once in a while luxurious treat to a low carb lifestyle.

I tried out a longer version of these muffins earlier this year, where half the quantity of nut butter is used but the ingredient list is longer and I used almond nut butter for those muffins.  This is the Recipe


1 cup nut butter (I used cashew)
2-3  very ripe bananas (I have also used some cut up pitted prunes to help sweeten in place of some of the banana)
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
1-2 tblsp of honey to taste (optional)
½ tsp bicarbonate of soda
1 tsp apple cider vinegar

Here’s How
  • Preheat oven to 200 degrees celsius
  • Add all ingredients into a blender or food processor.
  • Blend until well mixed – you will note that the batter will be sticky.
  • Pour batter into a greased muffin pan.
  • Bake 12-15 minutes.  If using a mini muffin pan, bake for 8-10 minutes

    Hi Prava! What is the purpose for the apple cider vinegar? Can it be replaced with normal vinegar?

    • Prava Singh says:

      Hi Cassandra, apple cider vinegar is from an apple and other vinegars are a bit harsher than cider vinegar or white wine vinegar because it lacks the essence of the fruit that remains in most other vinegar varieties. I suppose you could replace but the health benefits of apple cider vinegar are enormous.
