This date-sweetened, gluten-free muffin recipe is easy to make and super healthy. It’s also incredibly delicious! I serve it to the boys for breakfast with scrambled eggs, or as an after school snack. I love gluten-free baked goods made with healthy flours such as almond, coconut, or flax meal. I’m especially fond of treats that are sweetened with fruit, rather than honey or maple syrup. The great thing about using fruit as a sweetener is that it comes with fiber, which slows down the absorption of sugars.
Enjoy these fruit sweetened muffins made from coconut flour!
Banana Walnut Muffins
- 3 large eggs
- ¼ cup coconut oil
- 2 medium bananas
- 3 dates (remove pits)
- 10 drops stevia
- ¼ cup coconut flour
- ¼ teaspoon celtic sea salt
- ½ teaspoon baking soda
- ½ cup walnuts, toasted and chopped
- Place eggs, oil, bananas, dates and stevia in a vitamix; blend on medium speed until combined
- Add in coconut flour, salt and baking soda and blend until smooth
- Fold in walnuts
- Scoop ¼ cup batter into a paper lined muffin pan
- Bake at 350°F for 20-25 minutes (my batch took exactly 23 minutes; all ovens are slightly different)
- Cool and serve
These muffins will come out just as well when made without the walnuts. Then, you’ve got a great gluten-free, nut-free breakfast recipe! Lately loads of readers have been letting me know that they have nut allergies. If you can’t eat nuts, check out my Nut-Free Recipes page!

Could coconut sugar be used instead of stevia? If so what would be the correct amount ?
Michelle, I haven’t tried that :-)

Can you use almond flour instead of coconut flour?
Love your recipes, i have been following you for a few years now but i never comment :). I have a question that is killing me though and i am hoping you can answer. Every time i do muffins they look gorgeous snd fluffy in the oven, but once i take them out they deflate instantly. Why is that? What am i doing wrong?
Patri, thanks for your comment. That is called a flying crust and happens when you use too much liquid in a recipe :-)

We LOVE these muffins and have been making them for years through our travels all over the world. They freeze great for bringing on day trips too!
My kids love when I add chocolate chips but then you certainly don’t need stevia or dates.
Jeannie, thanks for letting me know you LOVE these muffins!

How long do they keep? Fridge or cupboard? Are they freezeable? Just made them – scrumptious!
Penny, to store these muffins, wrap in a paper towel, seal in a plastic bag, and refrigerate for up to 1 week. So glad to hear they’re scrumptious :-)
How do I know the number of carbs grams in each?

I could not find the information for this specific recipe. Also, I would like to exchange two bananas with two fuji apples. How do I know to calculate the carbs then?
