Allergy Friendly Paleo Banana Bread Muffins

For the first time in awhile I bought bananas and then I watched them turn brown before deciding that I actually needed to do something with them. It's been a long time since I've actually baked something, but I decided I wanted to make banana bread muffins. 

I have shared a lot of banana bread muffin recipes before, but I wanted something that was dairy, gluten, and peanut/almond butter free. There are so many people have food allergies and sensitivities, including myself, that I wanted to be able to enjoy them without having to worry about anything. I love these muffins because they're packed full of bananay goodness and the pinch of brown sugar on top give them a bakery like taste. Do yourself and make these muffins for your next brunch or just becauseđź‘Ś

Allergy Friendly Paleo Banana Bread Muffins
  • 1/3 cup plus 2 Tablespoons coconut flour
  • heaping 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon (more or less to taste)
  • brown sugar for topping
  • 3 small/medium bananas, mashed
  • 2 eggs 
  • 3 Tablespoons liquid egg whites
  • 1 Tablespoon melted coconut oil
  • 1 Tablespoon Maple Grove Farms sugar free syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • heaping 1/3 cup Don't Go Nuts slightly sweet allergy friendly spread (or the chocolate spread)

Preheat oven to 350F degrees and spray muffin tins with nonstick cook spray.

In a mixing bowl combine coconut flour, baking powder, and cinnamon. 

Once dry ingredients are combined add in wet ingredients and stir until everything mixes and batter forms. 

Scoop batter into muffin tins, filling about halfway full. Crumble a little bit of brown sugar on top of muffin batter.

Bake at 350F degrees for 17-20 minutes. The muffins are done when a toothpick is inserted and comes out clean. The edges should also be a darker brown and slightly crispy. Allow muffins to cool completely before removing and storing. For optimal freshness keep muffins in airtight container in the refrigerator or freeze for up to six months.

  1. Allergies arising from bananas are basically of three types- oral allergy, skin allergy and latex allergy. the symptoms of allergy vary in all three cases. However, oral allergies are more common in cases of food allergy.
