These paleo banana muffins are made from coconut flour and are gluten free, dairy free, and low carb!

I had such a great response to my recent recipe for paleo blueberry muffins, that I wanted to share this variation of the recipe with you!

I have to confess, this delicious recipe came about due to recipe mistake. A few weeks ago, after starting to mix the batter for a big batch of blueberry muffins, I realized I only had enough blueberries for half of the muffins. So, instead of running out to the store to get more, I threw in a banana and hadn’t planned on it turning out well. To my surprise, they came out Uh-mazing! These muffins didn’t even last one day, everyone had gobbled them up!

These paleo banana muffins are soo delicious, they are moist and just the right texture.

If you’re looking to get more flaxseeds (Omega-3’s) in your diet, you can add a couple of tablespoons to this recipe or just sprinkle them on top of the muffins after your put them in the pan. Also, if you like nuts, you could add a handful of crushed nuts to these paleo banana muffins. For those who aren’t allergic to nuts in my family, I will add in some crushed walnuts. Yum!

    Why do you use apple cider vinegar in many of your baking recipes? I haven’t seen many similar recipes before and i’m interested. Thanks!

    I can not stand the smell of vinegar so I don’t even have it in the house. I’ve always thought baking powder and soda helps baked goods rise. Can I skip the vinegar?

      The reaction of the baking soda and vinegar does help it to rise. I haven’t tried it without the vinegar, but if you do, let us know how it turns out. :)

    These were really good! I subbed ghee for the coconut oil and I drizzled some paleo salted caramel and chopped pecans on top. I’ll definitely make these again!
