Grain-free and dairy-free banana bread muffins are so moist, flavorful and make a delicious snack for both kids and adults.


Now that we’re homeschooling, the amount of snacks I am making per day has quadrupled. We rely heavily on grassfed beef sticks, raw cheese, cut-up fruits and veggies, smoothies and grain-free crackers but it’s nice to have a little mid-day treat thrown in there too.

While I don’t do a ton of baking these days, I can’t deny these gluten-free, dairy-free banana bread muffins are delicious, easy and fast to bake up! They include real food ingredients like:

Healthy Banana Bread Muffins

  • ripe organic bananas
  • pastured organic eggs
  • local raw honey
  • organic coconut oil
  • almond flour
  • baking powder
  • sea salt
  • cinnamon


That’s it! The texture is like a moist, dense banana bread with delicate nutty flavor from the almond flour and without an overpowering cinnamon taste. The recipe makes about 10 adult-sized muffins, so I often cut them in half for my kids and pair with a beef stick for a more well-rounded snack in between meals.

Kids’ blood sugar is prone to highs and lows just like us! Ensuring each meal and snack contains protein, fat and carbohydrate keeps my kids’ moods and energy levels stable.

These healthy gluten-free banana bread muffins would be a great choice for school snacks, a playdate treat, or a day of car/plane travel. To make it an easy clean up recipe, I use these parchment paper muffin liners and a ceramic muffin tin (healthier than using a non-stick muffin tin).

1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and arrange an oven rack in the center of the oven.
  2. In a bowl, combine the mashed bananas, eggs, coconut oil and honey until well mixed (a few lumps are okay).
