This muffin recipe is adapted from my very popular recipe for 5 minute paleo banana bread. Sometimes muffins are just better though:)

I use my Kitchen Aid Food processor for making this recipe. This food processor is the bomb! It combines, chops, and so much other good stuff. I am a strong believer that a food processor is an essential for every home baker. Because it is like a second set of hands. A blender like this one will also get the job done!

This whole blogging biz has me with both feet running as fast as I can to keep up! Not literally, of course. But in the midst of all the crazy hectic business side of things, I am still finding time to do what I love best. Enjoying snapping photos and styling all my favorite foods. I sure didn’t see this in my future a few years ago. But now that it’s happening- I can’t imagine my life without it!

I have been so wrapped up in new projects that the thought of recipes for this month totally slipped my mind. Whoops! To check out what I have been working on, feel free to pop on over to my new Ebook, 5 Easy Paleo Breads.

Once I got the ball rolling though, I couldn’t stop my imagination! All the yummy ideas came in like a flood. So I had to share them! Therefore, in a tribute to the holiday season, I have concocted a super rad recipe for paleo banana muffins.

all the holiday feels

If these muffins sprinkled in white dustings don’t scream Christmas breakfast, I don’t know what does. I would love to wake up on Christmas morning to one of these muffins and a mug of tea… or hot cocoa for that matter;)

    I love these type of recipes. I just discovered your blog and I LOVE IT. Thanks for the paleo eats! I am going to through some tough fertility treatments and I need to eliminate gluten and sugar from my diet. I have a collection of paleo and gluten free baking recipes on my blog but this one really looks amazing! Thank you! I’m going to try it this weekend!

    I’ok definitely be trying this recipe today! Where is all the protein coming from though? When I entered the recipe into MyFitnessPal, I got about 18 grams of protein per muffin if you make 5. Are you adding anything for the extra 11 grams of protein?

    These turned out amazing! I only made a small batch to try and I’m so excited by how tasty and easy they are. My ingredient swaps were frozen banana slices and maple syrup. I blended everything in my food processor and the batter turned out light and fluffy. They baked up moist and just slightly sweet so the chips and powdered sugar on top made them perfect. I quartered the recipe as best I could and made 6 small muffins. It’s a good thing I didn’t make a full batch because I want to eat them all!

    Since doing the Whole30 and making lifestyle changes it has been hard for me to continue my passion for baking… However, I recently started using Paleo recipes and others that don’t have added sugars. This was a great place to start! Very simple and delicious. My boyfriend who is a picky eater absolutely loved them as well! I don’t know if it was just my oven though, but I would recommend lowering the temp to 315-325. Mine cooked to my muffin cups too much and didn’t get to cook 100% because they were burning a smidge. So I will definitely be lowering the temp next time, possibly even to 300 and just letting them bake longer… If you want to be compliant to Whole30 I would try nuts on top and only use 4 eggs and 1/4 cup applesauce to replace the extracts and still add some sweetness. 🙂

      Hi Victoria! Thank you for you great suggestions 🙂 I haven’t had anyone say anything about them not cooking through, so it may be your oven, but I’m glad that you figured out how to make it work. Thanks so much for sharing! I’m so happy you are able to continue your love for baking… in a healthy way!

    These are baking in my oven now and they smell and look delicious! I’m a bit terrified after looking at the nutrition. I made 12 muffins, but that still seems awfully high compared to a regular banana muffin recipe. Is that because of the almond flour and so many eggs? I should have made 24 muffins…

    I had the same problem someone else mentioned. The recipe made 9 regular muffins, I sprayed my muffin tin, and still I had to pry them out of the tin, tore them up, and they were pretty dark. Of course I ate them, and the flavors good, but they were a bit dry from the over baking. The outsides were dark and the insides were a bit under cooked. I think I’ll try baking them at a lower temp for the 40 min. or longer, and hope they cook through since it’s such an easy recipe and quick to make!

      Hi Sherry, did you line the muffin tin with parchment paper like in the directions? This really helps! You will have no problem getting them out this way 🙂 Hope that helps. Happy baking!

    Hi, is this 490 for one singular muffin? Because they taste great but I can’t justify that many calories for one muffin (I’ve made the smaller ones, not the huge Costco sized ones). Thanks!

    Hi Kaylie! Quick question, what are your thoughts on substituting the almond flour for chickpea flour?? (Simply because that is all I have in my pantry at the moment) Would the results still be the same?? Thanks so much 🙂

      Hi Kristina, I haven’t tried this recipe with chickpea flour, so I’m not sure. I actually don’t really use chickpea flour, so your guess would be as good as mine. 🙂 Let me know how it goes!

    Delicious! Just made for 1st time. Watching them, my tops turned Brown after only about 30 minutes. Did the toothpick test and they were done. Very hearty!
