Bananas, Pecans, and Almond Flour

Warm banana bread has been one of my favorites since childhood. My mom made it for us, and I always felt like it was a special treat for breakfast. Still do, in fact. And I loved it when my mom made the banana muffins instead because they’re even easier to grab and eat. My mom always added nuts to the banana muffins, so that’s the way I love them. But, they taste great without nuts too. It’s all up to you.

Almond Flour, Coconut Flour, Baking Powder, Salt, Bananas and Pecans

Mix Together Dry Ingredients

This low carb banana muffin recipe is super easy. Basically, one day I had a craving, so I adjusted my other low carb muffin recipes (Low Carb Almond Poppy Seed Muffins and Low Carb Pumpkin Muffins). Start out by mixing together almond flour, coconut flour, sweetener, baking powder and salt in a large bowl. I use monkfruit sweetener to keep the muffins lower in carbohydrates. You can use your sweetener of choice.

Making Low Carb Banana Muffins

Add Bananas and Wet Ingredients

Once you have all the dry ingredients combined, add two bananas to the bowl. Ripe bananas are yellow with some brown spots, and they add a lot of sweetness to the muffins. Also add one egg, coconut oil, almond milk and vanilla extract to the bowl and mix with an electric mixer. If you have ripe bananas, but aren’t ready to use them, store them in the freezer with the peels on. Simply thaw the bananas and peel them the next time you’re craving banana muffins.

Low Carb Banana Nut Muffin Batter

Add Chopped Nuts and Bake

When the muffin batter is thoroughly mixed, add some chopped pecans and mix again. You can also use walnuts or any other nuts you like. After the nuts are mixed in, divide the muffin batter evenly between 12 muffin liners in a pan. Add some more chopped nuts on top, and bake at 400° for 18-20 minutes until the muffins are golden on top. Serve the muffins while they are warm, or store in an air tight container for later.
