Almond Banana Blueberry Muffins

I’ve been in a baking mood lately…Who am I kidding, I am always in a baking mood, pretending to be baking kids’ snacks but, in reality, I just love experimenting with new recipes and finally finding THE ONE that I fall in love in. If you bake gluten free, you know it’s a hit and miss adventure. Since my focus is always on nutritious as well as gluten, dairy and sugar free ingredients, my family makes me work overtime to get a blessing on a recipe. These little muffin beauties got a high score from my kids. They are sweetened by ripe bananas and dates, no added sugar! I love these with tea or if I’m running around with no meal in sight.

Why you are going to love it:

The genius of this recipe is that it has no added sugar! The sweetness comes from ripe banana and dates, which have become the go-to sweetener in all my baking. I simply blend dried dates with my liquids (eggs, oil, bananas) in a powerful blender, like the Vitamix, before adding the mixture to dry ingredients. Soak your dates in hot water for 5 minutes if they are too dry (and make sure all pits are removed!).

Dates are a fantastic replacement for sugar in smoothies, muffins, breads and cookies. In addition to satisfying a sweet tooth, they are full of fiber, minerals and vitamins. Dates are less processed than regular sugar and all you need is just a few to provide the right level of sweetness.

Made with almond flour, these muffins are highly nutritious, full of protein, fiber and good fat, making these treats a super moist and low carb option for breakfast or a quick snack. But unlike other gluten free flours (rice, millet, sorghum etc), almond flour is grain-free, so suitable on many diets.

Tip: If you want a nut free school version replace almond and millet flours with 1 1/4 cup spelt and 1 cup old fashioned oats (grind in blender).

Don’t eat them all in one sitting!
