Gluten-Free Buckwheat and Almond Flour Banana Nut Muffin Recipe

This buckwheat and almond flour banana nut muffin recipe is absolutely loaded with flavor and goodness! I’ve swapped traditional white baking flour for a mix of buckwheat and almond flour, giving these muffins more fiber, protein and makes them gluten-free!

The chia seeds also provide fiber, protein and lots of beautiful omega 3 fatty acids, which is important for healthy skin, hair, and nails, and also helps to promote good cardiovascular health. And when you add in the deliciously sweet ripe bananas, honey, and freshly crushed almonds, they taste amazing too. What more could you want from a muffin?

Have them hot or cold, halved and slathered in nut butter, or paired with a cup of tea! Enjoy everyone!

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup almond meal
  • 1 cup buckwheat flour
  • ¼ cup chia seeds
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 large ripe bananas
  • 2 large eggs
  • ½ cup honey

These muffins turned out really good! I made the following changes: used oil instead of applesauce (as suggested in the alternatives), used walnuts instead of almonds (love them with bananas!) - however I added the nuts to the batter instead of sprinkling them on top. I was worried this might affect the rise, so I added an additional 1/2 tsp of baking powder (so 1 1/2 tsp). They did rise perfectly (they might've also risen fine without the additional baking powder!). In any case, they are delicious, moist and the sweetness is perfect! This recipe seems to be really adaptable, which is a plus, I think!

This recipe is absolutely amazing. I have tried it with different types of flour, added lemon, coconut, even pineapple and adjusted the milk (not all in once, but I am just using different ingredients to change the flavour) My son loves it. We do it 2 times a week every week for a long time now. Thanks for sharing. Hugs from The Netherlands ??
