Paleo, Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Vegan

This delicious muffin recipe is great for a make-ahead breakfast or an on-the-go snack! These healthier banana muffins are consciously made using bananas, almond butter, and almond flour instead of oil, butter, and all-purpose flour, so they can be enjoyed anytime!

Paleo Banana, Almond, Chocolate Chip Muffins



  • 2 large overly ripe bananas (about 2 cups mashed)
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1/2 cup almond butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups almond flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • Dash ground cloves
  • 1/4 cup sliced almonds
  • 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips (Use Lily’s for Paleo and Vegan)
  • Topping: Additional sliced almonds, chocolate chips, and almond powder


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a medium-sized bowl, mash 2 large bananas. Add in 1 egg, 1/2 cup almond butter, and 1 tsp vanilla extract. Mix together until egg is fully combined and you have a smooth mixture.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk 1 1/2 cups almond flour, 1 tsp baking soda, 1/4 tsp baking powder, 1/2 tsp sea salt, 1 tsp cinnamon, 1/4 tsp nutmeg, and dash of ground cloves.
  4. Mix dry ingredients in with the wet ingredients, stirring until fully incorporated.
  5. Fold in 1/4 cup sliced almonds and 1/2 cup chocolate chips.
  6. Pour mixture into an oiled muffin tin or muffin liners, splitting batter evenly into each of the 12 liners, filling about 2/3 of the way.
  7. Top each muffin with a couple chocolate chips, sliced almonds, and a sprinkle of almond powder before baking.
  8. Bake for 18 minutes. After 18 minutes, insert a toothpick and if it comes out clean (minus the melted chocolate chips), they are finished cooking.
  9. Enjoy warm or make ahead for a quick breakfast or on-the-go snack!

**Store banana muffins for up to 3 days at room temperature. They will keep best when stored on a plate, loosely covered with foil, not in a sealed container.
