Flourless Banana Muffins with Peanut Butter (Gluten and Grain Free)

Flourless Banana Muffins with Peanut Butter (Gluten and Grain Free)

These flourless banana muffins are the perfect guilt free treat. I make them at least once a month. They are perfect for breakfast, snack, desert or packed in a lunch box. They are grain and gluten free. Therefore, anyone who has gluten sensitivity can consume them. They are also very high in protein and low in sugar. The main ingredients are ripe bananas, eggs and peanut butter. I sweetened them only with dark, sugar-free chocolate.

Why Should You Make This Recipe?

Who doesn’t love this classic combination of banana and peanut butter? This recipe can certainly satisfy your sweet tooth without causing you diabetes. It is high in protein and low in sugar. The high amount of protein will keep you satiated for longer and will keep your blood glucose levels stable. These muffins are sweetened only with the ripe bananas and sugar free chocolate chip. I use chocolate chip from Choc Zero that is sweetened with monk fruit. You can use dark or semi-sweet chocolate chip too. The amount of sugar per serving will still remain insignificant. The texture of these muffins is very close to the ones made with flour. Therefore, you will enjoy them just as much.

Who will enjoy these flourless banana muffins?

The flourless, banana, peanut butter muffins are good for people who like sweet treats, but avoid refined flour and sugar. Diabetics, or people with gluten intolerance would appreciate this recipe. Kids also love them. I serve them when my daughter invites friends over. They are always a hit. I also pack them in her lunch box as a sweet treat.

Substitutions

The peanut butter in this recipe can be substituted with almond butter. To make the muffins nut free you can also use sun butter (made from sunflower seeds). Instead of chocolate chip you can add berries or jam. This modification can make them Paleo. With added jam they taste exactly like peanut butter and jelly, which is another classic flavor combination.

Food Safety

I store them in the refrigerator, in a sealed container. They are best if eaten in 5-7 days. If you keep the muffins at room temperature they will get moldy fast.
