Have you ever tried banana bread muffins before? If not, then you’re in for a real treat. It tastes just like banana bread but in muffin form. The best part about banana bread muffins is being able to bring them wherever you go. It’s perfect for breakfast, snack and even dessert. If that doesn’t sound great, then wait till you hear this! These banana bread muffins are made with no sugar and no refined white flour. It’s an awesome keto recipe that’s both grain-free and gluten-free.
The secret to keeping this recipe in line with a keto diet is replacing regular flour with almond flour. Almond flour is an amazing, versatile ingredient. Health benefits such as improving heart health, managing blood sugar levels, improving energy levels, and much more, can be attained by consuming almond flour.

Just follow the directions and you’ll be shocked at how easy and quick baking these muffins are!
Before working on the muffins, make sure to preheat your over to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Use a 12-cup muffin pan and fill the holes with muffin liners for easy clean-up and extraction. If you don’t have muffin liners, spray your muffin pan with some cooking spray to prevent it from sticking later on.
Now, on to the preparation. We’re going to need two mixing bowls; one for the dry ingredients and one for the wet ingredients. Combine all the dry ingredients in one bowl. This includes the almond flour, baking powder and a pinch of salt. Set that bowl aside. Next, place the eggs and sweetener in the other bowl and turn on your mixer to combine the two ingredients until the consistency is fluffy and pale. You will want to use a mixer to beat your eggs because they need to be fluffy. Personally, I used to manually beat the eggs but using a mixer is just so much more efficient. Once that’s done, simply add your other wet ingredients and mix everything until smooth.
You have the option of topping your banana bread muffins with chopped walnuts. Trust me, the added flavor and texture of the chopped walnuts make this recipe twice as delicious. Finally, bake the muffins in the oven for at least 20-25 minutes. Be sure to use a toothpick and insert it into the center of one of your muffins to see if it comes out clean. If it does, your banana bread muffins are finished cooking. Allow your muffins to completely cool down before serving.
